YSSR Congress Party Rebel MP Raghuram Krishnaraja has been told that the Lok Sabha office will be vacated. The Lok Sabha Speaker’s Office has responded to MP Raghurama’s disqualification petition. YSSR has made it clear that its own party MP Raghuram’s allegations against Congress party chief and chief minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy do not fall under the disqualification hunt. The Speaker’s Office said that the disqualification hunt would come if the party violated the whip issued by it.
The Speaker’s Office said that disqualification would not come under fire if the Chief Minister criticized the ministers. The Speaker’s office said Raghurama’s disqualification petition is currently before the Privilege Committee and the committee will tell when the trial will be completed.
Meanwhile, a petition filed by the party’s Lok Sabha chief Vip Margani Bharat seeking disqualification of Raghurama Krishnaraja was sent to the Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla Privilege Committee. The Lok Sabha bulletin said that the Speaker had asked for a preliminary inquiry and submission of a report.
In this context, the Lok Sabha Privilege Committee recently held a hearing on Raghurama’s disqualification petition. Bharat, the YCP chief whip, appeared before the committee. Privilege Committee Chairman Sunil Kumar Singh is probing the matter. Raghuram explained on the occasion that he was committing anti-party activities. The Speaker’s office has made key remarks that criticizing the party leader in this regard will not come under the disqualification hunt.
