Jagan Reddy was making undeserving comments against the government on special status tag and other issues, he fumed.

Leader of the House thundered at KCR dispensation for cash scam case on him being a chief minister, who can stay in joint capital for 10 years with equal powers and rights in Hyderabad. “Since bifurcation was done ruthlessly, we got every right to enjoy every facility here and the TRS Government cannot question our stay here”, Naidu reiterated. He made these comments on the second day of Monsoon session.

Beginning a debate on special tag issue, Naidu declared that soon they will bring in a new act to clamp down on the corrupt politicians like Jagan Reddy and others. The members are ought to protect decency and maintain decorum in the House which is going haywire, Naidu bemoaned. In a gist, he warned that the TD Government will not let off the corrupt politicians in future. He also termed the Opposition leader as a novice making comments without any knowledge on the proceedings being marred by their frequent disruptions in the House.

In the meanwhile, minister R Kishore Babu and much to the delight of Naidu, sought Jagan to give back Rs 1 lakh crore he swindled during YSR regime and help the TD Government develop the new State. (NSS)
