The doctors, who conducted a CT scan of his face, ruled out serious injury to his eye but are learnt to have suggested that he be under observation for 24 hours. The ruckus continued in the house while the governor quickly completed his speech and left the hall. "They came to the House planned to create disturbances. What would have happened if the headphone hit the governor, causing him injuries?" Opposition Congress MLAs have obstructed the Governor's speech in the assembly. "Based on the report, we shall take action against the MLA", he said.
The state government has announced an investment support scheme for farmers, but the opposition Congress and BJP allege that the TRS government has failed to implement its farm loan waiver effectively and also in providing MSP to farmers for different crops. Goud suffered injuries as a microphone, allegedly thrown by Congress MLC Komatireddy Venkata Reddy hit him. He said the marshals deployed by the government outnumbered the legislators. The Governor, who wished that fruitful debate should take place on people's issues, concluded his address calling for happy living of every citizen with spiritual values.
