Telugu Desam has demanded arrest of RK Roja for her damning comments on their MLAs outside Raj Bhavan yesterday. “She humiliated a dalit MLA, a dalit minister and she deserves jail” TD spokesman Varla Ramaiah said.
Coming down heavily on TDP ‘for pursuing its vindictive and undemocratic policies’, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said their party MLAs will boycott the session when it takes up the issue of suspension of Roja for discussion on Monday. “The State had already made its stand on judiciary very clear. There is no point in attending” he said at Tank Bund. “There is no truth in Speaker telling that the suspension was an unanimous as our members had protested against the decision” he added.
‘Chief Minister has been misusing the office of the Speaker on the suspension of Roja issue as well as shielding the eight defected legislators from being disqualified,’ he told media at the Ambedkar Statue after walking out of the Assembly in protest against gagging their voice and not allowing them to vent their protest.
When asked about the issue being referred to Privileges Committee, he said;’ the committee is filled TDP leaders and they have a majority and we cannot expect any justice
