Hyderabad: YSR Congress Party has demanded the government to conduct local body polls by ensuring disqualification of members who defied the whip during the recent no-confidence motion in Assembly. "Time has come for all the parties to test their strength in the people's court. Let the local bodies be held on party basis. Let all the members who defied the whips of their parties be sacked. There is no room for buying time for political gains," YSRCP leader Bhumana Karunakar Reddy said at a media meet here on Sunday. "TDP's support to Congress in the no-confidence motion sounds a death-knell for both the parties. We are prepared to face the elections even if the two parties jointly fight the elections," he said. "The government is trying to take refuge under some provisions of the law and keep the action against MLAs at abeyance. It cannot face an election and hence is trying to avoid it," he charged.
