Hyderabad, July 15: YSR Congress will raise people’s issues including stringent action against defectors and Special Category Status (SCS) in the monsoon session of Parliament beginning July 17.
Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has chaired the Parliamentary Party meeting held here on Saturday which discussed the strategy to be adopted during the session, MP Mekapati RajaMohan Reddy, V Vijayasai Reddy and others told reporters.
The Party would raise the difficulties being faced by small traders, weavers and others in wake of the GST and also focus on Special Category Status (SCS) and Railway Zone for Visakhapatnam. This apart they would also highlight the assurances given during the division of the State.
Farmers’ issues, Polavaram and other aspects would also be brought to the notice of the House during the session. We will also press for a discussion on the Private Member’s Bill on the issue as SCS is the right of the five crore people of the state, they said.
We will also raise the issue of defections and stress the need to bring in more stringent clauses for elected representatives crossing over to other parties and bringing in clear provisions directly disqualifying the members who defect to other parties.
The Party has already appealed to the
Centre to exempt handloom and textile goods from GST and we will raise the
issue as well, they said.
