YSRCP MP and national general secretary V.Vijaysai Reddy said today that the party would not attend the budget session of the State Assembly slated from Monday as the Speaker failed to disqualify the 23 YSRCP MLAs who defected to the ruling TDP.
Speaking to media, he said that the party had already appealed to the Speaker to disqualify 23 MLAs but no action had been taken so far. He said that under Schedule X, the Speaker could disqualify the defected MLAs and demanded the Speaker to disqualify Denduluru MLA Chintamaneni Prabhakar as he was convicted in a case by the Bhimadole court for assaulting a Minister. He cited the Supreme Court judgement in this regard. It may be recalled that the party had boycotted the winter session in protest against the Speaker’s failure to disqualify the defected MLAs.
YSRCP general secretary Ummareddy Venkateswarulu responding JSP chief Pawan Kalyan’s remark that the proposed no-confidence motion by the YSRCP to be tabled in the Parliament on March 21 would not be of any use, said that the party has taken a decision taking various aspects into consideration before announcing the date. He said if the Centre fails to grant SCS to the State along with other demands of the AP Reorganization Act, the party MPs would resign to their posts, he said.
