Uttam tears govt policies to shreds
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N Uttam Kumar Reddy said the remarks of Governor ESL Narasimhan on morality were inappropriate.
Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N Uttam Kumar Reddy said the remarks of Governor ESL Narasimhan on morality were inappropriate.
Uttam Kumar Reddy pointed out that the Governor had tried to project the TRS government as too pious. “Our legislature is the sanctum sanctorum of democracy,” the Governor said while addressing the legislators which included members who defected from other parties to the TRS in open violation of anti-defection law.
The Governor himself did not take any action on several petitions submitted by the Opposition parties against the MLAs and MLCs who defected to other parties, he said. “Without having a sense of any accountability, the Governor is trying to lecture others on the importance of legislature and democracy. Strangely, Assembly Speaker S Madhusudan Chary and Council Chairman Swamy Goud were seated next to the Governor.
Both of them remained inert on the disqualification petitions filed against MLAs and MLCs who defected to the TRS showing utter disrespect to the Constitution and law,” he said. “The TRS government was reprimanded by the High Court on multiple occasions for tampering with the existing laws by issuing GOs. Instead of taking court’s observations seriously, the government banned the website on GOs so as to shield its illegal moves.
The Governor remained silent on the open suppression of people’s Right to Information by the TRS government,” he said. The TPCC chief said the Governor's address to the joint session of Telangana Legislature was purely customary and aimed at hushing up anti-democratic activities of the TRS government.
