The decision taken by the YSR Congress party headed by Y S Jaganmohan Reddy to boycott the assembly sessions till all the 21 defected MLAs are disqualified seems to have inspired the Congress party in Telangana.
The Congress Legislature Party is understood to be contemplating boycott of the ongoing Telangana assembly session in protest against the high-handed behaviour of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
“We have not been getting any opportunity to speak in the assembly. When we try to raise any crucial issue, our microphones are being disconnected. When we try to lodge protest, we are being suspended,” the Congress MLAs lamented.
In an informal discussion with media after the assembly hours, some of the Congress MLAs said they were wondering whether there was any use of attending the assembly when they were not getting any opportunity to raise their voice.
“It is better to follow the YSRC strategy in Andhra Pradesh assembly. We can boycott the assembly in protest,” they opined.
Well, that is what chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is aiming at. He does not want any opposition to his decisions but wants to see that only the government version goes into the people!
