KAKINADA: Condemning the attack on Lok Satta Party president N. Jayaprakash Narayan on the premises of the Legislative Assembly, polit bureau member of the Telugu Desam Party Yanamala Ramakrishnudu on Thursday held Deputy Speaker N. Manohar responsible for the attack and demanded that security be provided to elected representatives on the Assembly premises.
Addressing the media here, Mr. Ramakrishnudu said that it was a ‘black day' in the history of the State Assembly. “The legislators of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) have the right to freedom of speech and expression. At the same time, they must know that legislators from other parts of the State too are enjoying the same right and they must honour it,” he said.
Referring to the Telangana issue, Mr. Ramakrishnudu said that the neither the State government nor the Legislative Assembly had anything to do with the demand, as the ball was in the court of Parliament and the Central government. “As the Srikrishna Committee had already submitted its report to the Central government, the next step is to table a bill in Parliament with prior permission from the Assembly. I am wondering why the TRS MLAs are resorting to such unlawful acts to achieve their demand,” he said.
