Telangana HC issues notice to State Legislature Secretary over BJP MLAs suspension
The Telangana High Court today issued notice to the State Legislature Secretary on a petition by three BJP MLAs challenging their suspension from Assembly. Raghunandan Rao, E. Rajender and T. Raja Singh filed a petition challenging their suspension from the House for the entire business session.
The MLAs alleged that they were suspended in a pre-planned manner. The legislators sought direction declaring the action of the Legislature Secretary in suspending them as illegal and in violation of the Rules of Procedure and conduct of business in the Assembly, as well as the Constitution.
The Advocate General, however, submitted to the court not to intervene in the legislative affairs. After hearing arguments from both sides, the court issued notice to the Legislature Secretary and adjourned the hearing to tomorrow.
