Now a days with the ruling party presenting opposition with various issues to protest at, political parties are mostly spending their time outside the assembly than inside the assembly. All political parties are competing with each other to gain media attention and coverage with their protests.
Many felt that they are not protesting for the good of common man but to grab power. While recently TDP MLAs were seen cooking in front of Gun Park, YSRCP who always be two steps ahead of TDP formed two groups and carried out their protests in front of two gates leading to the assembly. TRS which is more aggressive and have many plans to attract media attention ran to stop CM Kiran in  his steps the moment assembly was adjourned.
Even small political parties like CPI, BJP,CPM started competing for their share of media attention. TDP after its cooking program getting good coverage went to Ravindra Bharati and protested for mere 3 minutes and after getting media attention they left the venue. TDP is marching ahead in protests this time with its MLAs sitting on protest at Gun Park in morning and then Nannapaneni Rajakumari liting the stove with kerosone and MLA Ramanaidu blowing air through his mouth. Now with stiff competition for media attention each party is copying others programs and protesting one day a head of them.
