Flash Dharna By Hanumantha At Raj Bhavan
Hyderabad: Congress senior leader V Hanumantha Rao on Saturday staged a flash dharna in front of the Raj Bhavan and tried to barge into it demanding that Governor ESL Narasimhan not to administer oath to defected MLAs.
VH staged a flash dharna in front of the Raj Bhavan along with Congress activists. The police obstructed VH and arrested him along with activists.
Speaking on the occasion, VH alleged that the Governor committed a mistake by performing oath taking ceremony for the defected MLAs.
In Telangana, the Governor committed such mistake by performing oath taking ceremony to the TD MLA Talasani Srinivas Yadav, who joined TRS after getting elected from TD.
He said that the TD government in Andhra Pradesh was getting ready to provide minister posts to the MLAs, who joined TD from YSRC. He demanded that the Governor not perform oath taking ceremony to the YSRC MLAs, who joined TD, in AP and not to kill the democracy.
He asked the Governor not to commit a mistake in AP too as he already committed in Telangana. “I will urge the President of India to dismiss ESL Narasimhan from Governor post in case he performed oath taking ceremony in AP,” he said and made it clear that the Congress would wage a movement for the protection of democracy.
