Revanth meets Speaker seeking disqualification of defected MLAs

, 6:10 PM IST

Telangana TDP Legislature Party leader A. Revanth Reddy called on Assembly Speaker S. Madhusudan Chary here on Tuesday seeking disqualification of party MLAs who defected to TRS.

Speaking to media persons later, Revanth Reddy said he had requested the Speaker to disqualify the MLAs before the budget session of Telangana Legislative Assembly. Referring to the request made by Errabelli Dayakar Rao seeking merger of 10 TDP MLAs into TRS, he said that Errabelli’s request was invalid as all the MLAs had resigned from the party before switching loyalties to TRS. Therefore, they could not be considered as TDP MLAs and must be disqualified under Anti-Defection Law.

Revanth Reddy said that the Speaker should consider the fact the merger should be rank and file of the party and not merely majority of MLAs. (INN)
