The Telangana Rashtra Samithi Legislators who were suspended from the Assembly on Tuesday staged a sit-in agitation at Telangana Martyrs' Memorial at Gun Park in front of the Assembly building.

TRS Floor Leader Etala Rajender warned the government that it would have to pay a heavy price for not withdrawing the cases against students.

He alleged that the government has no commitment and sincerity in lifting cases. Condemning the attitude of government, Mr Rajender said the government has cheated Telangana people once again by not lifting cases as per the promise.

The government would face serious consequences, if it did not lift cases against students, he warned.

Earlier, TRS Legislators stalled the proceedings in the House demanding withdrawal of all police cases against students.

The Legislators, Etala Rajender, T Harish Rao, K Taraka Rama Rao, G Aravinda Reddy, K Eshwar, K Sammaiah, K Vidya Sagar Rao and T Vinay Bhasker were evacuated from House forcefully by marshals after their suspension.

Raising the same demand Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Left party leaders, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged a walkout, while Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) and MIM registered their protest.
