The Privileges Committee of the Assembly has summoned YSRCP Nagari MLA R.K.Roja to appear before it on April 6, 2016.
The decision to summon her following the Assembly that took a decision to give another chance to her to explain her stand before the Committee. The TDP contended that the House has the authority to suspend the member for a period as preferred by the Speaker, the main Opposition based its arguments on the Rule Book that specified that the erring member could be suspended for only the remaining period of the session.
It may be recalled that Roja took a legal recourse and the single Judge of Hyderabad High Court has permitted her to attend the Assembly. She was denied entry into the Assembly by the marshals saying that they have clear orders not to allow her. Meanwhile, the Assembly Speaker challenged the decision of the single judge before a Division Bench that stayed the interim orders of the single judge.
