New Delhi: A statement issued by the State Secretariat yesterday said:
Based on the comments made by some members on the suspension of 12 MPs at the state level, the information is untrue.
Leader of the Opposition Venkaiah Naidu held daily talks with MPs of the ruling party and the opposition to find a smooth solution to the issue. Made efforts to keep them running smoothly. At the time, even the Leader of the Opposition expressed regret on behalf of the 12 MPs. But all 12 MPs from the five parties involved refused to accept the opposition leader’s apology.
Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections. Thus the efforts of the statesmen and their leader Venkaiah Naidu were in vain.
