Will Expelled Cong MLAs Get Back Their Seats?

Will Expelled Cong MLAs Get Back Their Seats?

If the Hyderabad high court has its way, two Congress MLAs – Komatireddy Venkat Reddy from Nalgonda and S A Sampath Kumar from Alampur, who were expelled from their seats during the budget session of the assembly in March this year, will get back their posts by next week.

The high court gave a week’s time to the state assembly authorities to restore their assembly membership, lest they face the punishment for contempt of court.

The court gave the directions to Telangana Assembly secretary and also law department secretary in this regard.

After hearing the arguments on the contempt petition filed by Komatireddy and Sampath Kumar, the court said the assembly authorities should submit documents pertaining to restoration of their assembly seats and adjourned the case to August 10. 

It may be mentioned that the high court had passed an order ruling the expulsion of the two legislators by the Assembly as invalid and directed that the two leaders be restored with the MLAs' status in the Legislative Assembly.

However, the state government or the state assembly are yet to implement the order.

The high court sought action against law secretary V Niranjan Rao and Assembly secretary V Narasimha Charyulu for deliberately delaying the implementation of the order.
