This is a TV grab that shows the exact moment when the Speaker announced that the Assembly rejects the Bill sent by the President. Almost every MP was in the well of the House. One TDP Member had to hold back one TRS Member from jumping to the Speaker’s podium so that he can tear the resolution! It is over to Parliament now, and for the Bill to be passed – either it has to be done through a voice vote whilst 15 Members stand in the well and protest, or those favouring Seemandhra have to be suspended. Ministers of the Central Cabinet will stand up and talk against the Bill. Members of the ruling party will standup and talk against the Bill. And yet, the Congress is putting the onus on the BJP in getting this Bill passed.
