New Delhi: Telugu Desam Party (TDP)’s Naramalli Sivaprasad was at it again when he dressed up as Annamayya, a famous poet and devotee of Lord Malaji, to the parliament today.

Sivaprasad was protesting against the centre over the demand of special status category status for Andhra Pradesh. 

 

Dressed as Annamayya, Sivaprasad was seen with a gold silk drape around his shoulders, a yellow waist band and was seen holding an iktara, near the Mahatma Gandhi statue in the parliament complex.

This is not the first time that Sivaprasad has resorted to such antics to register his protest. He has been known to dress up as a woman, washerman, Swachh Bharat worker and a student during the Budget session to raise the special status demand.

Not only that, the Chittoor MP had even called PM Modi as the “bad student of the class,” while raising his party’s slogan.

Sivaprasad’s stint comes close after TDP's Jayadev Galla said they will continue to protest and won't let their issues be unheard.

The 52-year-old Guntur lawmaker said, “Even after the no-confidence motion, our issues have remained the same. We presented all facts and figures. The Prime Minister didn't bother to answer our questions. We have been hearing the same statements for the past several years. We don't have any option left. So we will continue our protest. We cannot let our issues remain unaddressed.”

Meanwhile, the TDP members have been protesting both inside and outside the parliament demanding the implementation of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act.
