Beleaguered YSRC MLA, RK Roja has said she would appear before the Assembly Privileges Committee whenever it summons her. But she affirmed that her fight against injustice would continue as every effort is being made by distorting facts, concocting stories and resorting to character assassination by the ruling TDP.
“I have no issue to attend. The Speaker remarking that I am at war is not in tune with the high position he holds. On the three occasions, I was called to attend the meeting, I made it clear that I was in Delhi, in High Court and indisposed. I have full faith in my sincerity and despite knowing well that the majority in the Privileges Committee would be TDP members, I will not shirk my responsibility” she made it clear.
‘My suspension and TDP MLA Anita’s allegations are two different issues which are badly mixed up and confusion is being created. The issue before the Privileges Committee is about my alleged remarks on Anita and my suspension involves the issue of my utterances against the Chief Minister with regard to the Call Money Sex racket.
“The suspension issue under rule 304 clause (2) does not permit the suspension of any member for one year and we have challenged that in the court on this ground. Legislative Affairs Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu is misleading the House.During the debate on Call Money Sex Racket I have used the word Ca. Ma., an abbreviated form for Call Money, which is in vogue and was printed in many newspapers. When the media was agog with the abbreviated form of Ca. Ma., for Call Money how can I be held fault for using the word Ca. Ma. in course of sloganeering in the House,” she asked.
“The second issue pertains to my alleged remarks on TDP MLA Anita and her complaint to the Privileges Committee. How the video slipped out of the Assembly and made its rounds in the social media should be answered and those responsible should be punished. The clippings are edited heavily as my dress varies from time to time. Moreover, while the incident happens on December 18th the members complains on December 22 and if my words were so offending could anyone wait so long to complain as people are impulsive. This is the design of Chandrababu Naidu to make an issue out of it and the script was written later to implicate me in this false case” Roja said.
