The YSR Congress Legislature Party has sought revocation of suspension of its MLA R.K. Roja from the House for one year, Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao said.
The YSRCLP members regretted their behaviour in the Assembly and sought revocation of the suspension. “But the letter they gave to me has content that is tantamount to casting aspersions on the Chair and the House proceedings,” he said.
The Speaker recalled the rule position quoted by the YSRC and said gravity of the indiscipline warranted stringent action against the member. Similar action was initiated against the erring members in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Delhi Assemblies and there were precedents.
