Democracy is being suppressed like never before

New Delhi: Leader Of the Opposition in AP Assembly and YSR Congress Party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday met Samajawadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and apprised him of turncoats being made ministers in the Andhra Pradesh cabinet.
The meeting between YS Jagan and Mulayam Singh Yadav was lasted for 30 minutes.
During the meeting, the YSRCP chief  explained that 21 MLAs had shifted loyalties from YSRCP to the ruling TDP and four of those MLAs were given plum posts in the cabinet. He called for a re-look at the Anti-defection Law, in this regard.
Dmoracy and democractic values are being suppressed like never before in Chandrababu's rule.  "Despite the presence of Governor ESL Narasimhan, Chandrababu Naidu and speaker Kodela Siva Prasad, demoracy and democractic values are being suppressed like never before," YS Jagan told Mulayam Singh on the occasion.
"Several complaints have been filed with the assembly speaker regarding defection of MLAs but no action has been taken by him. Further, the swearing-in of the turncoat MLAs is a blatant violation of the democratic values and there is an urgent need to 'Save Democracy' by stricter implementation of the Anti-defection Law, he said. The Samajwadi Party leader expressed his solidarity with the issues raised by YS Jagan.
The YSRCP chief also met several leaders in Delhi and highlighted the unethical practice of making defectors ministers without their resigning the post they got from their mother party.
