YSRCP MLA RK Roja said that the Andhra Pradesh Assembly now looks like NTR Trust Bhavan due to the YSRCP boycott of the current session.
Speaking to mediapersons on Friday at Hyderabad, she quipped: Chandrababu knows pretty well that he would lose the next election. Hence, he is playing the role of the opposition too in the assembly." She said the TDP's four-year governance is a never ending story of failures and unfulfilled promises. By engineering defections, Chandrababu was committing the murder of democracy, she added..
Roja clarified that the YSRCP has decided to boycott the session only because the TDP has engineered defection of 22 MLAs and made four such turncoats ministers. Our presence in the Assembly would imply that we are okay with the defections. She demanded that Speaker Kodela Sivaprasad take immediate action on the issue of disqualifying the defectors. She said that the anti-defection law clearly states that those floor crossing should immediately be disqualified. But, the speaker is allowing them to attend the assembly. He has kept silent even when four of them were made ministers in Chandrababu Naidu cabinet.
