Government not falling short of majority: Anam

Reiterating that the government was strong and stable, Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy said that the government was not falling in minority after the alleged reports of the suspension of 9 MLAs by the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC). He dismissed these reports as baseless, saying that the PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana’s statements in this regard were quoted out of context. “No situation has arisen to make the government fall short of majority. The media has wrongly reported this. Our party got good results in the cooperative elections. It indicates that farmers put lot of confidence in our party,” he added.

India makes an inglorious exit

Sri Lanka played bold cricket to come up trumps in a pressure match and eliminate India from the ICC Women’s World Cup at the Brabourne Stadium on Tuesday. After thumping the Indian attack for its ODI high total of 282, Sri Lanka took control of the last Group ‘A’ match in the first Power-Play of ten overs and sensed victory after Harmanpreet Kaur’s cut shot of off-spinner Chamani Seneviratna travelled straight to Chamari Atapattu at point. Eventually it recorded its first win against India by 138 runs. England, Sri Lanka and the West Indies entered the Super Six stage from Group ‘A’, while Australia, New Zealand and South Africa progressed from Group ‘B’. With the West Indies being shot out for 101 and losing the match by six wickets to England in the day-match at the BKC Ground, India needed 251 in 50 overs to enter the next stage. But its openers Poonam Raut and M. Thirush Kamini barely managed to hit the ball of the square.
