Cash for Votes scam rocks AP Assembly

The issue of Cash for Vote scam, which showed TDP top brass trying to engineer cross-voting in neighbouring Telangana rocked the AP Assembly on the last day of this session on Friday.

As soon as the house assembled, the Opposition YSRCP gave an adjournment notice demanding a debate on the issue. However, Speaker Kodela Sivaprasad rejected the motion. At this, the YSRCP MLAs trooped into the well and this led to uproarious scenes inside the house. The house had to be adjourned twice on the issue.

The YSRCP MLAs Roja, Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy and Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy lambasted the TDP government for its escapist efforts. They said the ruling party was shy of debating the issue. “Though it keeps commenting on YS Jagan ad nauseam, it is fighting shy of taking up the issue of Cash for Votes scam,” they said.

Earlier in the house, YS Jagan rebutted the TDP charge that he was in cahoots with the TRS. He showed the pic of KCR and Chandrababu Naidu jointly campaigning in 2009 elections and said the TDP has a lot to answer on the Cash for Votes scam. He said he would resign from his post if the ruling TDP offers proof that he had spoken with Telangana CM KCR.
