KCR's Friend: Jagan's Decision Non Sense!

The fast paced political developments in AP have garnered national attention. Naturally, neighbouring Telangana state is closely observing the moves of AP. While CM KCR has denied to comment on AP's political conditions, TRS MP from Rajya Sabha and senior-most leader K Keshava Rao has found fault with AP CM Jagan's decision of abolishing the Council. He said Jagan's comment over Council that it is an expenditure is "wrong" and "non sense". He stressed the need to have the Council and its importance. He said the Upper House holds high be it in State or the Centre.

Keshava Rao said the Centre would usually implement the resolutions passed by the state governments. And it could take some time for their implementation.

Meanwhile, Keshava Rao has met the State Election Commissioner (SEC) Nagi Reddy over Congress party's complaint on him to the SEC for utilizing the Ex Officio member vote in Nereducharla. Soon after meeting the SEC, Keshava Rao has spoken to media. Defending his vote, Keshava Rao said it is not correct to find fault with his vote. Keshava Rao said, " KVP and I had exchanged the representing states and handed over our letters. Then Union Minister Prakash Javadekar had also passed the orders on the same. I had explained my concerns to the SEC."

Keshava Rao raised his objection over KVP Ramchandra Rao's vote power in Nereducharla. He said Congress' KVP doesn't even have a regular vote in Telangana state and how he was allowed to vote in Nereducharla. On the other hand, Congress leaders object Keshava Rao utilizing his vote as Ex Officio member. Keshava Rao is the MP of Rajyasabha representing Andhra Pradesh state. Despite being from Telangana he was assigned to Andhra Pradesh because of the lot method used to assign Rajya Sabha members for the newly created Telangana and residual Andhra Pradesh. And this led to the controversy between TRS and Congress in Nereducharla.
