I usually do not post such articles. But this one is darkest ever in democratic establishment and I could not stop myself problem posting it here.
On 28 March 2011, after Andhra assembly session started Agri Minister YS Vivekanand Reddy, brother of Ex Andhra CM YS Rajshekhara Reddy, slapped TDP MLA C H Prabhakar right in assembly house. This action was to prove the opposition claim “YSR’s gang of thugs“. MIM and TDP both were stalling the assembly for various reasons.
What was the fault?
TDP has stalled assembly proceedings for past one week demanding joint legislative probe into six year YSR mis-rule.
What YSR supporters has to say?
“With his action, he has proved that he is true brother of YSR and protector of YSR family legacy. How can he remain silent where there is an orchestrated attempt to defame YSR,”
“This should help him in the forthcoming by-elections to Pulivendula assembly seat, where he is likely to be Congress candidate”
Dont forget few days ago Loksatta president Jaiprakash Narayan and Congress MLC Paladugu Venkata Rao were beaten in assembly premises.
On 18 Feb 2011 JP was slapped outside assembly for condemning the ruckus created by TDP and TRS people in assembly house. Earlier TRS workers in house tore governer speech, pulled mike and chairs from podium. It is quite expected to condemn such uncivilised behaviour but so called representatives dont understand this.
Can we draw the conclusion that Congress slapped TDP in assembly to take revenge of TDP worker’s attack on its MLC outside assembly?
If these elected representatives cant handle the questions or opposition to their views then dear citizens our future is in dark. We must condemn it in full capacity as both incidents are shameful acts in democracy.
