The ruling party TDP MLAs sought to move a Privilege motion against former MLA and YSRCP leader Ambati Rambabu for making objectionable comments against Speaker Dr.Kodela Siva Prasada Rao.
They urged the Speaker to place the matter before the Privileges Committee and take action against the former MLA. The Speaker agreed that it was a serious matter but would take a decision on admitting it after consulting legal experts. Chief Whip Palle Raghunatha Reddy said Rambabu’s comments referring the Chair as ‘number one criminal’ warranted serving a privilege notice under rule 168 of Assembly proceedings. The comment was published in a vernacular paper, he said.
