TRS moving privilege motion against CM Kiran Reddy

Mar 17:

TRS is actively considering moving a privilege motion against the chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy for his alleged anti-Telangana statement in the assembly during the debate on no-confidence motion last Friday.

TRS president K Chandrashekar Rao said his party was consulting legal experts to figure out the possibility of moving the privilege motion.

“The TRS is considering moving the privilege motion against the CM for his shameful and immature statement on Telangana. We are consulting the legal experts on this,” said KCR before leaving for Delhi on Sunday.

In the assembly, an enraged Kiran Reddy had thundered that his government would not give a single rupee for Telangana, in response the TRS legislator T Harish Rao’s claim that the government had granted a meager amount of funds to the development of the region only after the pro-Telangana activists held the authorities by their collar. However, both had withdrawn their statements after speaker Nadendla Manohar pacified them.

While he is scheduled to attend the Parliament session along with his party MP from Medak Vijayshathi, KCR said his party would stall the proceedings of the Lok Sabha in demand of tabling a bill on granting a separate statehood for Telangana.

“We are going to attend the Parliament session. However, we will stall the house till the government is obliged to table the bill on Telangana,” said KCR.

While the analysts are skeptical about the possibility of obstructing the proceedings given the strength of TRS in the House with two MPs, a party leader said his party would be supported by the pro-Telangana parties including the principal opposition party BJP, and aviation minister Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lokdal (RLD).

He said seven pro-Telangana MPs including Ponnam Prabhakar, and Manda Jagantham would also join hands with KCR.

“It is for sure that TRs would stall the House no matter what the numbers are. We are expecting the support of T-MPs,  BJP and RLD when we demand the government to table the bill on Telangana,” said Sravan Dasoju, a politburo member of TRS.
