The Opposition YSR Congress today decided to boycott the ongoing winter session of AP Legislative Assembly in protest against the House not taking up the debate on the ‘call money racket’ and reviewing the suspension of party MLA R K Roja.
Opposition leader Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy led his party members out of the House. The five-day winter session, which began on Thursday, has been rocked by opposition protests on the ‘call money racket’ issue.
Roja was suspended for one year last week for her allegedly unparliamentary comments against Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
Legislative Affairs Minister Y Ramakrishnudu said the debate on ‘call money racket’ had already concluded. He also made it clear that there is no question of reviewing the suspension of Roja.
The ‘call money racket’ involves the allegations of harassment of borrowers by private lenders who provide easy loans on call at exorbitant interest rates.
