The Congress party on Thursday extended solidarity with Telugu Desam Party MLA Anitha and demanded that the YSR Congress expel its MLA R.K. Roja from the party for insulting Ms. Anitha by using derogatory language on the floor of the Legislative Assembly.

Convener of the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee’s Kisan Cell Satti Krishna Chaitanya Reddy said that the Congress had been giving utmost priority to Dalits and women and it was not going to spare any leader when it came to issues pertaining to them. “It was unfortunate that Ms. Roja targeted Ms. Anitha, a Dalit MLA,” he said.
