The News Minute | November 13, 2014 | 10:30 am IST The Telangana assembly witnessed a lot of turbulence on Wednesday after the government said that stringent action would be taken against Heritage Foods, after allegations that it was selling adulterated milk. Heritage Foods is owned by Andhra Pradesh chief minister and Telugu Desam Party leader, N. Chandrababu Naidu and his family. TDP members immediately protested claiming that the charges were politically motivated. The assembly was immediately adjourned for 10 min but to no avail as the ruckus continued after they reassembled also. According to a report in The Times of India, Information technology minister K Taraka Rama Rao said the TDP members were behaving like “the nominated members of the Andhra Pradesh government.” Objecting to this, the TDP members sought an apology from the IT minister for what they called a derogatory comment. The issue was triggered off by TRS member Enugu Ravinder Reddy when he claimed that the Kerala government had banned Heritage milk. He demanded to know what action the Telangana government would take against the company and also suggested that the government get the report from the Kerala government. The TRS and the TDP members continued to try and shout each other down and the speaker, S. Madhusudanachary had to adjourn the house for the day.
