Wednesday, January 24, 2018

BJP Floor leader in the Assembly P.Vishnu Kumar Raju today embarrassed the ruling TDP government by suggesting that the YSRCP MLAs who became Ministers in the ruling TDP government should resign, contest elections and come back with dignity.

Speaking to media after the Public Accounts Committee meeting along with its Chairman B.Rajendranath Reddy at the Assembly, the BJP MLA said giving Cabinet berths to the defected MLAs was not correct. The MLAs who crossed over to the TDP was less grave compared to making the Ministers, he observed. He observed that the BJP had fought against the YSRCP during elections and it was not in the fitness of things to accommodate the defectors in the Cabinet.

Vishnu Kumar Raju said that the appointment of the MLAs could be legitimized by bring an Act so that allegiance to a party might end with elections. This paves the way for making anyone a Minister irrespective of the party one hails from, he said.
