Hyderabad: Telangana Assembly Speaker M Madhusudana Chary on Monday served notices to the defected three Telugu Desam legislators, who switched loyalties to the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) recently, in response to the petitions submitted by the TDP.

The Speaker gave one week time to the turncoats - Talasani Srinivas Yadav (elected from Sanathnagar), Teegela Krishna Reddy (Maheshwaram) and C Dharma Reddy (Parkal) - to explain why they should not be disqualified.

The opposition TDP has been demanding the Speaker to cancel the membership of the three MLAs in the Assembly for defying the party’s whip and joining thepink party. The party argued that the legislators should be disqualified immediately under the anti-defection law.

It may be mentioned here that four Congress MLAs also defected to TRS in the presence of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao recently. Two of them – DS Redya Naik and K Kanakaiah- were already served notices and the two others K Yadaiah and G Vital Reddy were yet to get notices from the Speaker. Congress has been demanding to disqualify the defectors with immediate effect.

Since there was no time frame set in the anti- defection act to take action against the defectors, the two opposition parties left the Speaker to his discretion and urged to deliver judgement at the earliest in their petitions.
