Finding fault with Speaker S. Madhusudana Chary for not giving a chance for clarifications after Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s replay on Nayeem’s issue, the Congress Legislature Party leaders said they would move a no-confidence motion against the Speaker after discussing the issue in the CLP.
Speaking at the Assembly Media Point here on Monday, CLP leader K Jana Reddy alleged that the Speaker failed to follow the traditions of the House and has been suppressing the voice of the Opposition parties after Chief Minister’s reply. “It is painful. The Speaker is repeating the same attitude again and again. There was no response from the Speaker even when the Congress brought the same to his notice”, he alleged.
TPCC Chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the Speaker was behaving in undemocratic manner. There was no hearing at all on party defections by the MLAs. The Speaker was not respecting the rules and regulations of the House. The Speaker was giving chance to any minister abruptly cutting the mike of Opposition MLAs. As per the traditions, the Ministers have to speak only on point of order. The attitude of the Speaker was unfortunate. The Legislative Assembly remaining as a forum for ruling party propaganda.
CLP deputy leader T Jeevan Reddy alleged that the Chief Minister was speaking in a manner that the facts would be buried. It was not possible to SIT to make the money, gold, documents and dairies to public and hence the Congress was demanding CBI inquiry, he said. He asked the government to tell whether the police were not the reason for the Nayeem’s illegal activities spread across various States. He said some police officials and political leaders participated in a function held at Imamguda function hall. To reveal all, CBI inquiry will be suitable for the case, he said and asked the Chief Minister to tell as to why he went away when the discussion was on and as to why the Chief Minister was afraid of CBI inquiry.
There was no answer from the Chief Minister on Nayeem’s laptop, pen drive and diary. The government was not handing over them to the trial Court. He asked the Chief Minister to tell as to what about the four MLAs, four MLCs and two Cabinet Ministers’ alleged links with Nayeem. “We would examine on moving a no-trust motion in the House against Speaker S Madhusudhana Chary”, he said.
