I Regret for dishonoring NTR: Speaker Tammineni

TDP leaders found fault with AP Assembly speaker Tammineni Sitharam for allowing rebel TDP MLA Vallabhaneni Vamsi to speak in the house. TDP chief Chandrababu and Speaker Tammineni had a heated argument over this and losing his cool, Chandrababu said assembly is not YSRCP office.

Reacting on this Tammineni asked the TDP chief to withdraw his comments or else will leave to his fate. "Assembly is nobody's and it belongs to people as they have elected as us to be here to solve their problems. As a speaker, I used my special powers and allowed Vallabhaneni Vamsi to speak," said Tammineni.

Recalling the incident of denying Telugu Desam founder NTR to speak in the assembly, Tammineni said, "I got elected to the assembly six times and I was also part of the dishonor that had been done to NTR. I paid the price for it and stayed out of power for nearly 15 years."

Considering Vallabhaneni Vamsi's request, Tammineni permitted him to be seated wherever he wants in Assembly house.
