Potshots in poetic way

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, DEC. 16. The Telangana Rashtra Samiti member, Mandadi Satyanarayana Reddy, was at his poetic best on Thursday while taking potshots at the Telugu Desam for frequently disrupting the proceedings of the Assembly.

The din created by Telugu Desam members during a short discussion on price rise visibly irked Mr. Reddy, known for his quick wit and spontaneous recital of poetry on various issues. He began his speech by saying "Idi yemi lolli" (what is this din) and went into poetry reminding the TDP how it could create disturbance in the House which had witnessed stalwarts making valuable speeches.

He said people of the State were witnessing their `lolli' and added that people would not welcome leaders with yellow shirts. As the member was reciting poetry, those on the treasury benches reacted thumping the tables. Every word in his poetry attracted the attention of members, including those in the Opposition.

After the poetic remarks, Mr. Reddy went on to give valuable suggestions to the Government. At the same time, he advised Telugu Desam members not to create trouble every day. "Have you ever given a good suggestion or appreciated the work done by the Congress Government," he asked.
