Disqualify TRS MLAs with posts, says Congress leader Revanth Reddy to EC

Citing the disqualification of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs by the Election Commission recently and approved by the President, Revanth said the nine MLAs of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) should face similar disqualification.

In the letter, Revanth said that the TRS government has violated all the norms in appointing them as Parliamentary Secretaries and they deserve to be disqualified.

Revanth Reddy stated that six TRS MLAs - Dasyam Vinay Bhas-kar (Warangal West), Jalagam Venkata Rao (Kothagudem), V. Srinivas Gowd (Mahbub-nagar), Gadiri Kishore Kumar (Thungaturthy), V. Satish Kumar (Husnabad) and Kova Laxmi (Asifabad) were appointed parliamentary secretaries in 2014.

Despite this, he said, the government went ahead and appointed another three MLAs - Somarapu Satyana-rayana, Rasamai Balakishen and Vemula Prashanth Reddy - as chairmen of councils and corporations, giving them Cabinet Minister status, salary and perks. These positions are considered the office of profit.
