TDP MP Venugopal Reddy, who was involved in a fracas over Telangana bill in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, termed as a “lie” the allegation that he was carrying a knife inside the House and claimed that he was assaulted by 10 members.

“I was not carrying a knife inside the House. This is a lie being spread by the Government. I was holding a mike which may have looked like a knife,” Reddy told reporters outside Parliament.

The TDP MP said, “this is a black day in the history of Parliament. I was opposing the introduction of the Telangana bill in the House when these things happened.”

“They wanted to forcibly introduce the Bill…. Meanwhile I pulled the mike in front of the secretary general. It was the only instrument I had in my hand. I have been falsely implicated by Sushilkumar Shinde, Kamal Nath,” he said.

Reddy alleged that 10 MPs had beaten him up as “they want to kill me politically and physically. The Congress MPs became marshals today”.

He alleged that the MPs who attacked him in the House included Raj Babbar, Poonam Prabhakar Rao, Manik Sarkar, Anjan Kumar Yadav, Vijay Shanti and Nama Nageshwar Rao.

Reddy along with other TDP members was also seen shouting slogans against Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh while he was leaving Parliament House complex after the developments in Lok Sabha.

    So you divide or allow divide our State and want our votes Congress, and BJP ? You pull a dagger through the heart of my state and cut it and kill it (where its over 80% people are hurt for immemorial times in future). And you want our votes - do we look like stupid's??? You don't even want to take a fair vote from its people on split but would want to still pull the dagger for votes. When a country is ruled by a foreigner and a PM that has all its SIKH potions in western world what else one can expect divide and rule.Why is your heart bleeding PM of India Manmohan singh or Foreigner Sonia i or fundamentalist Leader Modi. Punjab is not getting divided manmohan nor ir your mother land is getting divided Sonia, nor you personal property modi, nor is your son CBN. You are drawing the dagger through our Andhra Pradesh Heart and we are bleeding?
