Jagan Dares TDP To Make Defectors Contest Again

The YSR Congress chief also said that his Party would boycott the Assembly on Monday and go to the High Court over the contempt of court by the TDP on the Roja issue.
Hyderabad | 19th March 2016
YSR Congress Party chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy today dared the TDP to make the eight defectors resign from their seats and get them re-elected.

Jagan led a march from the Assembly to the Ambedkar statue after the Assembly was abruptly adjourned on Saturday afternoon. Speaking after bathing the Ambedkar statue with milk, Jagan said that the TDP was protecting the defectors. "The TDP is misusing the office of the Speaker to protect the eight defectors. Chandrababu Naidu has admitted MLAs from the YSRCP into his fold, and is afraid to go for elections as he knows that the people will teach him a fitting lesson. He is trying to use the Speaker's office to save himself. If he has the guts, he should make them resign and go for the polls," he said.

He also alleged that the TDP had no respect either for the law or for the judiciary. He slammed the TDP for not allowing suspended YSR Congress Party MLA Roja into the Assembly despite High Court orders.

Charging the ruling Party with lying, the YSRCP supremo said that while the government was saying that the House had unanimously passed the resolution suspending Roja for one year, the fact is that 67 YSRCP MLAs had resolutely opposed it. He said that the government had scant respect for democracy.

"The government is behaving in a very disrespectful manner towards the judiciary. Though the High Court has allowed Roja to attend the House, the TDP government is not allowing her. They are not showing any respect for women. We strongly condemn this undemocratic behaviour," he said.

"Now, the government is talking of holding a meeting of the Privileges Committee. Why was no meeting held when TDP members, including Chandrababu Naidu, used highly unparliamentary words in the House?" he also asked.

The Leader of Opposition said they would boycott the Assembly on Monday and go to the High Court to highlight the contempt of court by the TDP government.

"As a mark of solidarity with the judiciary, which is sought to be undermined by the TDP government, we will boycott the proceedings on Monday," he said.
