Responding to the TDP MLAs complaint, President Pranab Mukherjee said that, being a TDP MLA, how come Talasani is working with the TRS government.
A few of the TDP MLAs had met President Pranab Mukherjee and submitted a memorandum against Talasani Srinivas Yadav and asked to make Talasani ineligible. After the proper scrutiny, the President had inquired about Talasani. Upon such inquiry, the TDP officials explained that, from the recent MLC elections, the new returning officer listed Talasani name in the TDP officials list. They even clarified that he utilized his vote as a TDP official itself.
President: How many MLAs are shifted from another party to TRS?
TDP officials: Five MLAs from TDP, four from Congress, two from YCRCP and two from BSP have shifted to the TRS party.
The TDP officials clarified to the President that, though the actual strength of TRS is 63, with the newly joining members, the strength has now reached to 83.
President: What about the progress of the case against this issue?
TDP officials: The High Court even sent the notices on the issue, but complaining some health problem, the Speaker is avoiding to give his response on it.
Then the President assured to do a proper justice to the TDP officials, by taking their memorandum to the concerned authorizes at the centre.
As the issue is directly taken to the President, the reaction is expected to be quicker than the usual.
