Can snatch 5 MLAs and decline opposition status to TDP: CM Jagan

AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has made strange statements in the assembly in his first ever speech. After Tammineni Sitharam was elected as Speaker of the Assembly, Jagan stood up to deliver his speech congratulating Tammineni.

"While electing the speaker, I recalled many incidents. This assembly has witnessed how unruly opposition MLAs were snatched by the previous ruling party. If I follow the same for political benefits, there won't be any good that can survive in this assembly. Before coming to the assembly, few people have suggested me that if we can pull off five MLAs of TDP, the party will lose its status to get opposition status. I can do so but I'm not here to do such politics and there won't be any difference between me and Chandrababu," said Jagan.

Saying that the recent elections are the best example of democracy, Jagan added that the party which took our MLAs and MPs, got the same number of legislators and Parliamentarians. If at all any party MLA, MP or leader wants to come to us, they should resign to their constitutional position first or else the speaker should disqualify them immediately without any hesitation.

"Last assembly showed us how a leader of the house and speaker should not be so. This assembly will set an example as how a leader of the house and speaker should act with their constitutional powers," said Jagan.
