Hyderabad, Feb 11 (ANI): A day after a stormy session of the Uttar Pradesh budget assembly, the Andhra Pradesh Assembly too experienced a ruckus over Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’’s alleged links with former Satyam Computers Chairman B. Ramalinga Raju.
According to the opposition, the newspaper “Sakshi”, owned by Reddy’’s son Jagmohan was funded by Raju. This, they said, showed the deep relations between Raju and Reddy family.

Opposition MLAs from parties, including the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), the Communist Party Of India (CPI) and the Communist Party of India- Marxist (CPI-M) were suspended for raising a hue and cry over the issue.
The suspension was opposed and the ruling Congress came in for severe criticism.
