Jagan urges AP Speaker to revoke suspension of MLA Roja

, 8:17 AM IST

Hyderabad: YSR Congress President Y S Jaganmohan Reddy today urged Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker Kodela Sivaprasad Rao to revoke the suspension of party MLA R K Roja from the House.

Citing certain business rules of AP Assembly and also Lok Sabha norms, the Opposition leader maintained suspension of Roja for one year is against the rules and also “illegal”.

“I once again request you sincerely to kindly, respecting the time tested business rules, revoke the suspension of Smt Roja. The motion that was passed to suspend Roja was against the provisions of the Business Rules (of Assembly) and hence illegal and unconstitutional,” he said.

Roja, a popular actress in south Indian cinema, was suspended for a year during last month’s winter session of the Assembly for allegedly making unparliamentary comments against Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the House.
