Elvis Stephenson Made Anglo-Indian Community MLA

The Telangana cabinet today decided to nominate a representative right away from the Anglo-Indian community to enable him to take oath along with other MLAs-elect.
Hyderabad | 7th January 2019
The Telangana cabinet presided over by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao met today at Pragathi Bhavan and decided to nominate a representative right away from the Anglo-Indian community to enable him to take oath along with other MLAs-elect, something that is happening for the first time in the history of the Assembly.

There is a Constitutional provision to provide representation for the Anglo-Indian community in the Telangana Assembly, but normally there is a lot of delay in nominating an Anglo-Indian MLA, resulting in him not taking oath along with other elected members. This also results in loss of precious time to get to work as an MLA.

To avoid this, the Telangana cabinet, in its first meeting itself, has taken a decision to nominate an Anglo-Indian community representative, and Elvis Stephenson was predictably its choice (Stephenson was the person who got the TRS to famously catch Revanth Reddy red-handed offering money for votes in the Telangana Council elections).

A proposal to this effect was forwarded to the Governor, who gave his nod to it and forwarded it to CEO Rajat Kumar. The CEO also gave a notification announcing Stephenson as the MLA for the Anglo-Indian community for the second time.

The cabinet also placed on record its deep appreciation for the Election Commission in general and the Chief Electoral Officer Rajat Kumar for the "successful and peaceful" conduct of the Assembly elections.

The government has also decided to provide copies of the Constitution, Assembly procedures and other information connected to the legislature procedure in Telugu, English and Urdu to all the MLAs-elect. These copies were shown to the Chief Minister by Legislature Secretary Vedantam Narsimha Charyulu in Pragathi Bhavan.
