12 YSRCP MLAs get notices to appear before Privileges Committee

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

The Privileges Committee of the AP Legislature has served notice on 12 YSRCP MLAs who crated ruckus in the Assembly during the monsoon session last month.

It may be recalled that unruly scenes occurred in the Assembly by the main Opposition YSRCP members who entered into scuffle with marshals in their bid to storm the Speaker’s podium on September 9 demanding immediate discussion on the special Category Status to the State. The Privileges Committee examined the audio and video footage of the proceedings. The MLAs climbed onto the reporters’ table in front of the podium raising slogans and one MLA was seen uprooting the mike in front of the Speaker.

The Speaker adjourned the proceedings referring the matter to the Privileges Committee that served notices on the MLAs.

The members who were served notices are Kodali Sri Venkateswara Rao, Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy, D.Raja, K.Srinivasulu, Ch.Jaggi Reddy, B.Sivaprasada Reddy, A.Ramakrishna Reddy, P. P.Ramakrishna Reddy, Sunil Kumar, Mutyala Naidu, Sanjivaiah and Kambala Jogulu. They were summoned to appear before the Committee on October 25 and 26 to present their stand.
