Legislators move breach of privilege against Lagadapati

Special Correspondent



Fervent plea :Legislators R. Damodar Reddy, (Congress) T. Harish Rao (TRS), Gunda Mallesh (CPI) , K. Harishwar Reddy (TDP rebel), E. Laxminarayana (BJP) and Eatala Rajender (TRS) submitting a memorandum to Speaker Nadendla Manohar in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

HYDERABAD: A delegation of MLAs submitted a petition to Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar on Wednesday urging him to initiate breach of privilege proceedings against Congress MP from Vijayawada Lagadapati Rajgopal for his utterances pertaining to Section 14 (f) of Presidential Order.

The delegation comprising -- R. Damodar Reddy (Congress), K. Harishwar Reddy (TDP), Eatala Rajender and T. Harish Rao (Both TRS), E. Laxminarayana (BJP) and Gunda Mallesh (CPI) referred to a press conference addressed by Mr. Rajagopal stating that section 14 (f) can never be amended.

In the memorandum, they said that the MP in a derogatory manner replied to a question that for various political reasons, a resolution had been moved in the Assembly on the Section 14 (f) requesting the Central government to amend the Presidential Order. It clearly amounted to breach of privilege of the House as the MP had no respect for the proceedings of the House.

They said being members of the House, they were disturbed by the derogatory remarks, which are contemptuous in nature. “We are constrained to bring it to your notice for initiating action against a person who does not have any respect for any proceedings of the House so much so to the Chair of the House,” they said in the petition. The delegation said that a peculiar situation prevailed in the State regarding the rights of the people of Telangana area. The issue is very sensitive and people have become emotional in several issues. They said that 14 (f) and implementation of GO 610 were such issues for which all political parties had passed a resolution urging Centre to act.
