Following President Ram Nath Kovind’s historic decision to give his assent to the disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs recommended by the Election Commission in ‘Office of Profit’ case, Telangana’s firebrand Congress leader Revanth Reddy has taken up fight against 9 ruling TRS legislators who are allegedly enjoying dual posts in Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s government.
Revanth has lodged a complaint with Election Commission of India in New Delhi against the 9 TRS MLAs who were appointed as Parliamentary Secretaries. Revanth has told the EC that KCR appointed 9 MLAs as Parliamentary Secretaries which was against the Constitution.
TRS legislators Vijay Bhaskar, Jalagam Vengal Rao, V Satish Kumar, G Kishore, V Srinivas Goud nd Kova Laxmi were appointed as Secretaries in the government. High Court already found fault and struck down the orders. However, Revanth requested the Election Commission to disqualify the 9 TRS MLAs on the lines of AAP legislators who were disqualified.
