Hyderabasd: The opposition YSR Congress on Friday issued separate notices for moving privilege motions against Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and three ministers for making “unparliamentary” comments against the Leader of Opposition YS Jaganmohan Reddy in the assembly.
The three Andhra Pradesh ministers against whom notices were moved are Devineni Umamaheswara Rao (Water Resources), K Atchannaidu (Youth Affairs) and Kamineni Srinivas (Health). “We would like to raise a privilege motion under Rule 168 against Leader of the House (Naidu) for making unconcerned, unwarranted and unparliamentary remarks against Leader of Opposition on March 9, 2016 during the Chief Minister’s reply to the motion of thanks to the Governor’s address.” “He (Naidu) also used unparliamentary language on March 14 during the discussion on no-confidence motion against the government,” the YSRC MLAs said in the notice issued to the Andhra Pradesh Legislature Secretary.
In the notice against K Atchannaidu, the YSRC MLAs said the Youth Affairs Minister used unparliamentary language on March 14. The Health Minister made unparliamentary remarks on March 9 while the Water Resources Minister made the comments on the 14th, the YSRC said in the notices. The YSRC’s move comes against the backdrop of the ongoing political fight between the ruling and the opposition parties in the AP Assembly over the year-long suspension of MLA R K Roja from the House and the privilege proceedings currently underway against four other MLAs of the Jagan-led party.
The Privileges Committee of the Assembly is scheduled to meet at 3 pm tomorrow to discuss the motions against the YSRC MLAs based on the enquiry report submitted by a committee headed by Deputy Speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad.
