HYDERABAD: When chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao gives PowerPoint presentation in the Assembly on March 31 on irrigation, the MLCs will watch him live from the visitors’ gallery.

As there is no provision for the CM to address the joint session of the Legislature and since Rao is keen on giving his presentation on irrigation on the floor of the House, it was decided to make arrangements for MLCs in the visitors’ gallery.Rao replying to debate on the Appropriation Bill in the House on Tuesday, said the Speaker gave him permission to give a powerpoint presentation on irrigation.

“I will speak for about two hours using Google maps. The entire material will be given to members in a pen drive. The Opposition parties can take experts opinion and speak on my presentation. I want a thorough debate on the matter and I am prepared to continue the session up to 11 pm. If necessary, the House will sit the next day (April 1) too,” the chief minister said.

Meanwhile, the Congress said it is against CM giving powerpoint presentation on the floor of the House. The CLP, in a representation to the Speaker, said the proposed PowerPoint presentation be arranged in the committee hall of the Assembly. The TTDP is also of the same view, sources said.

Both Congress and TDP are likely to boycott the presentation, if it is held on the floor of the Assembly while the BJP is ready to be part of the proceedings and also participate in the debate.
