The Congress MLAs in the Telangana legislative assembly was highly disobedient in the House on the first day of the budget session by stopping and interrupting the speech of Governor E S L Narasimhan.
Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, who is the Nalgonda MLA, showed the most unmanageable and worst behavior by throwing his headphone at the podium, causing injuries to the right eye of Chairman of Telangana state legislative council K Swamy Goud.
On the one hand, Bharatiya Janata Party members boycotted the Governor’s address and on the other hand, the Congress members created ruckus in the House protesting on the farmers’ suicides.
As soon as the Governor began his speech, the Congress members stormed the podium raising slogans against the government. But, the government had already posted several marshals in the House and they stopped the Congress MLAs from going ahead.
This made the Congress MLAs outraged and tore the copies of the Governor’s speech text into pieces and threw them at the podium. Moreover, Komatireddy tried to break the restricting marshals’ cordon and as they disallowed him, he threw his headphone at the podium.
It has hit the face of the legislative council chairman, sitting beside the Governor, causing bleeding injury to his right eye. Goud was immediately rushed to Sarojini Devi Memorial Eye Hospital.
Now, after this, MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy might get the suspension from the assembly for one full year, for his alleged unruly behavior causing injuries to Legislative Council chairman K Swamy Goud. Also, a criminal case might be filed against him for causing injuries.
Irrigation and Legislative affairs minister T Harish Rao announced that action would be taken on Venkat Reddy as per the rules of the Assembly.
“They came to the House with a plan to create disturbances. What would have happened if the headphone hit the Governor, causing him injuries? We have asked the authorities of the assembly to go through the records of the proceedings and submit a report. Based on the report, we shall take action against the MLA,” he said.
