Irony time: 3

A minister in Andhra Pradesh describes the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) as rowdies. The TRS chaps are most upset, and no doubt wish to prove that the allegation is false. So what do they do? The Hindu reports:
The Andhra Pradesh Assembly today plunged into pandemonium as Telangana Rashtra Samithi members rushed towards Treasury Benches, making angry gesticulations, and manhandled a Congress member in the scuffle, leading to their suspension from the House for the day.


As Treasury Benches and other Opposition members watched in disbelief, the TRS members T Harish Rao, a first-time MLA and nephew of the party MP K Chandrasekhar Rao, and N Narasimha Reddy charged towards the Congress members, with raised fists.

Senior members from all parties tried to pacify them and hold them back. In the scuffle, Congress member Krishna Reddy was manhandled.
Immense pride erupts in our noble democracy. And ah, here's the report with the "rowdies" quote.
