YSR Congress, CPI to stay away from Speaker elections

Special Correspondent.

HYDERABAD: The Communist Party of India (CPI) and the YSR Congress Party have decided to stay away from the voting process in the elections to the posts of Speaker and Deputy Speaker.

In a press release late on Friday evening, CPI secretary K. Narayana said that all the four MLAs of the party would continue its stand on the ‘no-trust' motion against the Congress government for its ‘anti-people' policies.

Ms Y.S.Vijayamma, honorary president of YSR Congress Party in a statement on said she would be staying away from the voting protesting the dilution of the pet programmes launched by her late husband Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy. She also urged the new Speaker to take up the no-confidence motion to be moved by the TDP. She said as the YSR Congress Party did not have the numbers to move the motion, it would support the no-confidence motion to be tabled by the TDP.

Meanwhile, the TDP trained its guns on Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy while asking him to defeat the Congress candidates in the Speaker and Deputy Speaker election if he wanted to prove himself to be a credible leader opposing an inefficient government.

The TDP MLAs, Payyavula Keshav and D. Narendra Kumar, told media persons after the party candidates filed nomination to the elections that this was the first big test for Mr. Jagan.
