YSRC’s no-trust motion against AP Assembly Speaker defeated

While 57 members of the YSRC voted in favour of the motion, 97 voted against it.

Hyderabad: A motion expressing no-confidence moved by opposition YSR Congress in Andhra Pradesh Assembly against Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada was defeated by 40 votes here this evening.

While 57 members of the YSRC voted in favour of the motion, 97 voted against it, Deputy Speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad announced after a head count of the MLAs was taken.

The YSRC moved the motion alleging that the Speaker was acting in a partisan manner and trying to stifle the opposition. The party wanted removal of Rao as the Speaker.

YSRC members Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy and others spoke in favour of the motion while Bandaru Satyanarayana Murthy, Pitani Satyanarayana and others from the TDP opposed it.

BJP floor leader P Vishnu Kumar Raju said moving a no-confidence motion against the Speaker was unfortunate.

Soon after the motion was defeated, the Speaker returned to the House to preside over the proceedings. He thanked the House for reposing faith in him.
