Revanth to challenge suspension in court

Telangana Telugu Desam Party floor leader in the assembly A Revanth Reddy is all set to move the court challenging the decision of Speaker S Madhusudhanachary to suspend him and his colleage Sandra Venkata Veeraiah from the assembly for the rest of the budget session.

According to Revanth Reddy’s argument, the first day of the budget session every year is officiated by the Governor and only he can take any decision on the unruly behaviour of the MLAs, if there is any.

The Speaker cannot take action against any MLA for disrupting the House during the Governor’s address.
“If at all the Speaker wants to do so, he should first take the issue to the notice of the Governor. Moroever, there is no provision for suspending a member for the entire session.

We are examining the relevant rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the State Legislative Assembly in this regard,” Revanth Reddy said.

In fact, BJP Legislative Party leader G Kishan Reddy too wanted to know whether the Speaker can suspend members for disrupting Governor’s address.

The contention of the BJP legislator is that the Speaker does not convene the House on the day on which Governor addresses the Joint Session.

According to him, when Yanamala Ramakrishnudu was the Speaker of the then Assembly in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, the then opposition leader P Janardhan Reddy led Congress members had torn and thrown speech copy on the then Governor.

“When some members asked the then Speaker as to why action was not taken, Yanamala said he was not officiating the business on that day and hence, he can’t take any action,” Reddy recalled.
