Your Excellency, Don’t Become Another Ram Lal : Marri to Guv

0

Marri Sashidhar Reddy, a senior Congress leader and former MLA from Sanathnagar, Hyderabad, leveled a serious charge against Governor ESL Narasimhan for his alleged constitutional impropriety.

He cautioned Governor against becoming another Ram Lal.

According to Reddy, governor failed on two counts in upholding the constitutional values in Telangana.

  1. He administers of oath office to an MLA who was facing anti-defection charges
  2. He is allowing the minister to continue to hold office even after six month instead asking him to face elections.

Ram Lal, was Governor, when NT Ramarao was toppled by Nadendla Bhaskhar Rao, NTR’s finance ministery,in a coup of sorts, way back in August 1984. There was a hue and cry against Ram Lal’s constitutional impropriety in removing NTR and allowing Nadendla form government when the former was in US undergoing treatment. Later, buckling under the pressure from people across the country, Ram Lal was removed by the centre.

Sashidhar Reddy accused of Narasimhan of same constitutional impropriety for administering oath of office and secrecy to TDP MLA Talasani Srinivasa Yadav as a minister in KCR’s cabinet. Incidentally, Talasani wrested the Sanathnagar seat from Sashidhar Reddy in 2014. But he defected to TRS and a petition seeking his disqualification under anti-defection law is under consideration of the speaker. The question Sashidhar Reddy was asking that,”can a governor ignore the constitutional status of a defected MLA and administer oath of office?”

“Governor was aware that Talasani was elected to Assembly as TDP candidate in 2014. He was inducted into cabinet on December 16, 2014 and  completed six months,” he said in a letter addressed to the governor.

“You administered,” he said in the letter, “oath of office to Talasani as a minister in the government run by TRS, which is not the political party through with which he won as a legislator.”

“Instead of protecting and upholding the constitution, you are protecting the unconstitutional acts and activities of the Telangana government. People of the state still remember the infamous Governor Ram Lal and feel that, hopefully, we should not see another one in the making.

Centre: No Instruction Issued to Guv on Sec.8

0

Union Government clarified that no advisory had been sent Raj to Bhavan of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on the implementation of Section-8 of Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act-2014. In the backdrop of political brouhaha over the reported legal advice to Governor ESL Narasimhan by Attorney-General of India, union law minister DV Sadananda Gowda cleared clouds of confusion over the issue. Two days ago NDTV reported that Attorney-General Mukul Rohatgi adivised the Governor Narasimhan that he could monitor the cash-for-vote scam inquiry being carried by Telangana ACB. The report raised a thick political dust in Telangana and Andhra Prades, with political parties taking open stand opposing and favoring the Rohatgi’s advice. While T-CM warned that he might have to sit on fast in Delhi in case governor intervenes in the investigation, other political outifits of Telangana stated that they would launch an agitation against governor’s special powers. Congress and intellectuals like Prof. Haragopal also joined chorus. On the other side of the boader in AP, ministers and civic organizations, launched concerted campaign for implementation of Sec. 8. However, YSRCP took a different stand and said there was no need for central clearance as the provision has already been in force since June 2, 2014. AP Congress sought CBI inquiry into cash-for-vote and telephone tapping. PCC president  Raghuvira Reddy is prepping to file a petition to this effect in AP High Court.  Amid this commotion, Sadanada Gowda told Times of India, that law ministry was the appropriate authority to issues such advisories. “ As per the procedure, the ministry of home affairs has to write to us seeking our opinion on such issues. The MHA, however, has never asked about our views. And there is no question of the law ministry writing to anybody on this,” he told a leading newspaper.

KCR Meets Governor, Elucidates Situation in State

0

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]elangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao met Governor ESL Narasimhan last night and elucidated the rumours that were rife on Section-8. The meeting, which went on up to an hour, was predominantly focussed on matters pertaining to Section-8 of Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014.

Also, KCR stressed that Section-8 and the ongoing infamous cash-for-vote were two different issues. Chandrababu was allegedly trying to link up these two things, he reportedly brought to the notice of Narasimhan.

It has to be mentioned here that attorney general’s alleged comments on Section-8 were doing rounds on social media after it was telecast on television channels. In the apparent comments, attorney general has said that Governor can look into cash for vote scam. He further mentioned that Narasimhan can direct police of two states to operate in Hyderabad. He has even said that ACB has all the evidences in cash-for-vote scam and that it would go ahead with probe.  Condemning the statements made by some AP leaders, KCR has said that no untoward incidents took place in Hyderabad and all those who reside in Hyderabad are Hyderabadis.

The legal experts are of the opinion that attorney general might have not made those statements as they say, there’s no mention of Andhra Pradesh in Section-8. Further, the sub-section(2) of the section states that the Governor needs to consult the council of ministers of Telangana state and can take an independent decision, they added.

Did Centre Ask Governor to Monitor Cash-for-vote Scam ? More Details

0

In what could be a politically inflammable action, Centre is said to have asked governor ESL Narasimhan to monitor the probe being done by Telangana ACB into the cash-for-vote scam.

ESL Narasimhan is the joint governor Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. At a time when Andhra Pradesh is insisting on investing of special powers enshrined in the Section 8 of Andhra Pradesh reorganization Act-2014 with governor and Telangana resisting it tooth and nail, any such directive from the Centre to the governor would make the political situation explosive in the two states.

The sensational news is carried by English news channel NDTV this afternoon.

[pullquote position=”left”]Raj Bhavan sources neither denied nor confirmed the reports and governments of  AP and Telangana chose not to react officially[/pullquote]

According to NDTV, Attorney-General Mukul Rohatgi has advised governor Narasimhan to intervene in the dispute that arose between AP and TS out of a sting-operation into the cash-for-vote scam. The sting led to the arrest of TDP MLA Revanth Reddy.  Entrusting the responsibility of monitoring the case to governor means implementing the section 8 of Act. NDTV says governor Narasimhan had sought legal advice from the attorney-general and the latter advised the former to take control of the probe. It was a oral advice.

“The Governor has special powers under the Section 8 of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act, since the two states share the capital, Hyderabad, and two different police forces have jurisdiction in the city,” Rohatgi advised the Governor, according to NDTV.

Talking to Telugu360.com from New Delhi, TRS MP B Vinod Kumar expressed doubts about such instructions having come to governor from New Delhi.

“Its true governor can be instructed by the centre. Similarly, attorney-general can legally guide the centre and governor. But, as far as my knowledge goes, there have been no such orders from the centre,” Vinod said. But he did not deny the report flatly.

Raj Bhavan sources neither denied nor confirmed the reports and governments of  AP and Telangana chose not to react officially.

However, notwithstanding the reports of a patch up , AP and Telangana governments continued their efforts to gather solid evidence to prove their allegations against each other in the cash-for-vote scam and phone tapping issue.

AP CID police have reportedly summoned Telecom service providers to inquire into the phone tapping issue at Bhavanipuram Police Station in Vijayawada far away from insecure Hyderabad.

AP police had reportedly instructed them not to erase  call data of some important phone numbers that were allegedly tapped  in the past six months.

On other side,  AP DGP JV Ramudu held a meeting with the members of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed to probe the phone-tapping issue in Hyderabad.

Agriculture minister Prattipati Pullarao said chief minister Chandrababu Naidu was feeling insecure in Hyderabad.

Addressing a round-table in Vijayawada, Pullarao said, “Greater Hyderabad Municiapl Corporation has refused to give permission to construct house. Water supply to his Lake View guest house camp office is erratic. His phones have been tapped. The CM has been under constant watch.”
