Hyderabad, March 14: Telugu Desam Party’s Revanth Reddy has moved Hyderabad High Court, challenging his suspension from Telangana legislative assembly for the entire budget session.
Revanth Reddy, who is the leader of TDP in the assembly, filed a petition in the court, challenging Speaker Madhusudhana Chary’s move.
Revanth Reddy and another TDP member Sandra Venkat Veraiah were suspended by the speaker for trying to disrupt Governor ESL Narasimhan’s address to the joint session of both houses of state legislature on March 10.
The TDP leader argued that their suspension is unconstitutional as the governor’s address doesn’t come under the purview of the House. The petitioner submitted to the court that the session begins after the governor’s address.
Revanth Reddy said there were special rules relating to the governor’s address and there was no provision for suspension of any member.
It may be recalled that entire opposition barring AIMIM had staged walkout from the assembly on March 11 to protest the suspension of TDP members.
Meanwhile, condemning the suspension of TDP members, the party today staged protest on Tank Bund. TDP leaders led by former minister Peddi Reddy kept a petition at the statue of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, praying him to bless the TRS government with wisdom.
Peddi Reddy said that the TRS government’s attitude is anti-constitutional. He alleged that TDP members were suspended due to the fear that they may question the misdeeds of the government.
