The TRS leadership has asked the Telangana Legislative Council Chairman Swamy Goud to disqualify four of its MLCs for joining the Congress.
TRS MLC and chief whip Palla Rajeshwar Reddy urged the Chairman to take immediate action and disqualify Bhupathi Reddy, Yadava Reddy, Ramulu Naik and Damodar Reddy.
Talking to mediapersons today, Rajeshwar Reddy said that the defected leaders deserved to be disqualified immediately.
"We have appealed to the Chairman to take action as per legislature procedures and disqualify them," he said. "The Council Chairman has reserved his decision, and we are sure that the decision will come in our favour."
Advocates have argued for the defected candidates.
