The TRS Parliament members who have been staging protests inside and outside the Parliament over farmers issues, gave an adjournment motion on uniform national paddy procurement policy and also laws to ensure MSP to all crops. However, they were rejected immediately in both the Houses, forcing the MPs to rush into the Well of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. They displayed placards and demanded that the Centre give a clear statement on national uniform procurement policy and also address the Rabi (Yasangi) procurement issues.

There was, however, no response from the Union government, following which the TRS MPs announced in both Houses that they were staging a walkout in protest against the Centre’s attitude, and vowed to continue with their protests in different forms until the Centre comes to the rescue of farmers in Telangana.

Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha Chairman and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu accepted the resignation of TRS MP Banda Prakash to the Rajya Sabha membership and made the announcement in this regard in the House on Monday.
