BJP Members Suspended From Assembly For Sloganeering

The five BJP MLAs were suspended from the Telangana Assembly when they raised slogans against the Muslim reservations bill and surrounded the Speaker's podium.
Hyderabad | 16th April 2017
Telangana BJP MLAs today took out a padayatra to reach the Legislative Assembly from the statue of B R Ambedkar near the Telugu Talli flyover, terming the Muslim reservations move of the TRS government as religion-based.

Wearing black scarves, they started the padayatra after garlanding the Ambedkar statue, and, led by party chief K Laxman, marched holding banners like "ST reservations muddu and mathaparamaina reservations vaddu" (we support reservation for STs but oppose religion-based reservations) and "down with vote bank politics".

Party floor leader G Kishan Reddy, Khairatabad MLA Chintala Ramachandra Reddy, Uppal MLA N V S S Prahabkar and MLC Ramachander Rao took part in the padyatra.

They said that religion-based reservations would be opposed, and alleged that it was a unilateral decision of Chief Minister KCR to convene a special Assembly session to pass the bill which went against the spirit of the Constitution.

The MLAs, after reaching the Assembly, attended the proceedings and opposed the reservations bill moved by the TRS government. However, the five MLAs were later suspended from the Assembly when they raised slogans protesting the bill and surrounded the Speaker's podium.

After minister T Harish Rao moved for the suspension of the BJP members, the Speaker took the opinion of the House and announced the suspension of Kishan Reddy, K Laxman, Prabhakar, Raja Singh and Chintala Ramachandra Reddy.
