TDP wants emergent session, impartial probe into 'Sripadasagar Scam'
Hyderabad, Apr 20 (UNI) The opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) today appealed to Andhra Pradesh Governor Rameshwar Thakur to convene an emergent session of the State Assembly to discuss the alleged ''foisting'' of cases on the party legislators for what they spoke in the state assembly.
A delegation of TDP legislators led by party Legislature Party Deputy Leader T Devender Goud submitted a memorandum to the Governor today. They also demanded an impartial probe by an independent agency into alleged irregularities in the Sripadasagar Project.
The party also wanted action against the government for registering criminal cases against five of the party legislators ''for their performance in the Legislative Assembly.'' The legislators demanded immediate convening of the Assembly to discuss the ''extraordinary situation arising out of the executive's interference in the affairs, freedom and privilege of the legislature and to protect the sovereignty of the august House.'' The Governor, using the special powers conferred on him by the Constitution should order a probe into the ''Sripadasagar Scam'' by an agency independent of the state government, they demanded.
