Andhra Pradesh opposition YSR Congress, today has complained to the Governor over introduction of four of its defected YSRCP MLAs in the State cabinet.
The opposition referred it as a mockery of democracy and the Constitution. It urged the Governor, to either sack these Ministers or insist on their resignations.
A memorandum was submitted to the Governor Narasimhan, by YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy. Narasimhan, on Sunday administered oath to 11 new ministers at Amaravati, the Andhra Pradesh capital.
Jaganmohan Reddy told the Governor that, the defected MLAs, N. Amarnath Reddy, C. Adinarayana Reddy, R. S. Krishna Ranga Rao and Bhuma Akhila Priya were elected to the assembly on the YSR Congress ticket, but had, along with 17 other MLAs from the party, jumped into the ruling party a year ago.
He further told Narasimhan that the petitions for disqualification of these MLAs were promptly filed with assembly Speaker, but the party’s periodical remainders went in vain.
The Speaker, while announcing the strength of the various parties, showed these four MLAs along with 16 other defected members in the list of 66 members of YSR Congress, pointed Jaganmohan Reddy.
Jagan even urged the Governor to uphold higher values of democracy.
