Rural Development Minister Dokka Manikya Varaprasada Rao on Saturday suggested that if the Assembly Sessions were held in the villages, the leaders who force adjournments and waste precious time would get to know of the problems faced by the people firsthand and think twice before disrupting proceedings.

The Minister revealed to media persons at the Assembly Media Point that he was going to write a letter to leaders of all the parties and the Deputy Speaker to convince them of the necessity of taking the Assembly to the doorstep of the people by convening the sessions in interior villages.

He said that he was inviting them to a village Kondaveedu village in Guntur district where a Session can be held there. Mr Varaprasada Rao said that he would make all arrangements for the stay of the Legislators and facilitate them to interact with the villagers.

“Six months of the year, the Assembly sessions can be held in the Capital, while the rest of the Sessions should be held in the villages,” the Minister said. This would help the Legislators realise the importance of solving problems faced by the people rather than wasting time of the House by staging protests and disrupting the proceedings.
