RAJAHMUNDRY:The government has initiated measures for the conduct of Assembly sessions in the new state of Andhra Pradesh at the earliest, according to AP Legislative Assembly Speaker  Kodela Siva Prasada Rao.

Efforts.jpgDisclosing this to newsmen at Hotel Shelton here on Saturday, he said that there was a lot of difference between functioning of  the Assembly in the past and the present.  Earlier, the MLAs used to discuss important subjects at length, he pointed out but did not elaborate further.

He said that his priority was to run the House properly and not initiate disciplinary action  against errant MLAs. As a Speaker, he had to work cutting across the party lines and do justice to all the members, he added.

The Speaker said that it was the duty of the Union government to fulfill all the promises it had made to the residuary state in the AP Reorganisation Act. He felt that the process adopted by the then Congress-led UPA governemnt at the Centre to divide Andhra Pradesh was not good.

Stating that everyone should make efforts to protect the environment, he urged the people to  maintain all-round cleanliness as a part of the Swachh Bharat scheme and Smart Cities project.  He said 20,000 individual lavatories had been constructed in 150 days in the Sattenapalli Assembly constituency in Guntur district.
