Speaker of the Telangana Legislative Assembly Madhusudhana Chary on Tuesday suspended 14 members of the Congress, including secretary of the Congress Legislature Party Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, when they repeatedly disrupted the proceedings of the House over the TRS encouraging defections.
As the suspended Congress members refused to leave the House after suspension, marshals were called in to physically evict them. The Congress MLAs since morning had stalled the House demanding taking up of their adjournment motion on defections. They decried the alleged ‘unconstitutional acts of the ruling party members and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao by encouraging defections.’
Leader of the Opposition K. Jana Reddy walked out of the House by himself as party members were being lifted by the marshals. They walked out through the main entrance of the lobbies and squatted at entry gate number three, which earlier used to be the official entrance for the Leader of Opposition.
Those who were suspended include Mr. Bhatti Vikramarka, Uttam Kumar Reddy, Padmavathi Reddy, D.K. Aruna, J. Geeta, T. Jeevan Reddy, Ramreddy Damodar Reddy, Chittem Ramamohan Reddy, T. Ramamohan Reddy, Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, Puvvada Ajay, Sampath Kumar, Patlolla Kishta Reddy and Nallomothu Bhaskar Rao.
