Telugu Desam plans no-trust move against Speaker
- Seeks Congress support
- Jana says party would decide
HYDERABAD: The Telugu Desam party is reportedly contemplating to move a no-confidence motion against Telangana Assembly Speaker Sirikonda Madhusudana Chary. It has been making an exercise towards this end.
As part of the proposal, Telangana TD leaders Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Revanth Reddy on Thursday called on senior Congress leader and Leader of the Opposition K Jana Reddy and sought Congress support for motion against the Speaker.
Instead of directly making it clear that the Congress would not vote in favor of such a motion against the Speaker, Jana Reddy told the TDP leaders that the issue of supporting the motion would be discussed in the party and he would convey the decision later. However, Jana Reddy told the TDP leaders that his party would lend support to them during the debate over the motion against the Speaker but whether to vote or not to vote in facour of the motion depends on the party decision.
It is leant that the Telangana TDP leaders were constrained to take the decision to move no-trust motion against the Speaker as he had not only failed to take action against the defectors, but also rendered injustice to them in the allotment of seats in the House as well as in the Business advisory meeting. However, the Telangana TDP leaders were thinking of taking a final decision only after meeting their party chief N. Chandrababu Naidu. (NSS)
