Assembly Speaker Kiran Kumar Reddy on Wednesday was forced to adjourn the House twice as the  Telugu Desam and Praja Rajyam parties stalled the proceedings for one-and-a- half-hour alleging irregularities in the auctioning of liquor trade licences and in the functioning of the Tirumala Tirupati Devastanam Board.

When the House met for the day, both the parties introduced adjournment motions on the irregularities in auctioning liquor licences and functioning of TTD Board.
