High Court Issues Notices to Ruling Party Legislators in AP
Hyderabad: The High Court has issued notices to TDP MP Kesineni Srinivas, MLA Bonda Umamaheswar Rao, MLC Buddha Venkanna, Mayor Koneru Sridhar, AP DGP, Vijayawada CP and others in the case of attack at Vijayawada Road Transport Commissioner Office. The news came as a shock to the ruling Telugu Desam Party Government, as per reports.
Later, the High Court deferred the case for four weeks. The unruly behavior of MP Srinivas and others party leaders was in the news a few days ago.
Taking suo moto cognizance of news reports over the attack on Transport Commissioner Office and abusing the commissioner, the High Court took up the case on Tuesday and issued notices to 11 people.
News reports suggested that the alleged ruling party leaders abused the AP Transport Commissioner N. Balasubramaniam and manhandled his security staff.
The AP government was criticized for the behavior of its legislators.
Consequently, the Party Supremo and Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has also taken the issue seriously. Not only he chastised his party leaders, but also offered an apology to the Commissioner.
However, as the High Court took cognizance of the incident, the party leaders will have to defend their case, and in the process may end up causing trouble to the Government.
