No trust motion against Speaker

Hyderabad, Dec 22: YSR Congress
Legislature Party has unanimously decided to move a no-confidence motion
against the Andhra Pradesh Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao for not conducting
the assembly proceedings in a fair manner giving equal opportunity to all the
members. ‘The legislature party which met here on Tuesday has decided to move a
no-confidence motion against the Speaker as the way the assembly proceedings
were conducted were not impartial and were only one sided,’ Deputy floor leader
Jyothula Nehru told reporters here.

‘Our party has taken strong objection to
the style of functioning of the Speaker and we have to take the unfortunate
decision to move the no-confidence motion. We had earlier also thought of
moving the motion but gave a second thought assuming that the proceedings would
go on smoothly but things did not improve but went from bad to worse.

We were pressing to raise a social issue
of Call Money cum Sex racket but the treasury benches were hell bent on not
bringing up the issue and had tried many ways. While the Legislative Affairs
Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu had moved a motion to suspend a member for one
day the Speaker had made it two days.

In the other case of suspension of Roja,
who was asked to raise the issue of Call Money cum sex racket, the Speaker had
gone beyond the frame of the quoted rule no 340 sub-clause (2) which clearly
says that a member can be suspended only to the extent of the ongoing session. She
was suspended for one year.

Ramakrishnudu and the Speaker going
ahead with the suspension and the Speaker allowing incessant interruptions when
the Leader of Opposition was speaking is not in the democratic spirit and we
will serve the notice against the Speaker tomorrow,’ he said.
