With 70 of the total 175 MLAs being first timers, the Andhra Pradesh government has found a novel way of educating its MLAs on the dos and donts of the house. Addressing the day one of the 2-day long orientation programme, Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy asked the representatives to come prepared for the subjects that they are taking up and more importantly, be punctual to the house. Jagan added that the representatives must have the highest regard for the public money and parliamentary discipline and that the assembly sessions must be utilised in a way that best addresses the issues of people of Andhra Pradesh.
Asking his MLAs to be well prepared, Jagan advised the attendees to be well equipped with data and facts to counter and support their statements. "Once the mike is in your hand, you have a great responsibility to bring people's issues to the notice. Remember, holding a mike in a public meeting is different than holding it in the house," said the Chief Minister advising some first time MLAs.
Jagan also pointed out that along with the better governance that YSRCP promised, they should also try to make the assembly proceedings better and coordination with the Chief Whip G Srikanth Reddy along cooperation with the Speaker and members of the opposition is the best way to achieve that. Taking a dig at the previous TDP government, the Chief Minister said that, "The Assembly sessions in our government will be very different from that of the previous ones as we respect democracy and allow the opposition to speak and yet reply in a firm manner."
