Raghurama’s ‘legal war’ against Jagan, Vijayasai continues!


It’s not even a month since the CBI court in Nampally, Hyderabad dismissed the petitions filed by YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju seeking cancellation of bails granted to YSRCP president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy and YSRCP Rajya Sabha member Vijayasai Reddy in illegal assets cases booked by CBI and ED against them.

Raghurama filed a fresh petition in the Telangana High Court on Wednesday (today) challenging the judgement of CBI Court dismissing his petitions seeking cancellation of bails granted to Jagan and Vijayasai.

The CBI Court dismissed Raghurama’s petitions on September 15 after hearing the cases for over three months.

Raghurama filed petitions in CBI Court arguing that Jagan and Vijayasai violated bail conditions by influencing witnesses in CBI cases filed against him after becoming CM and MP respectively.

However, Jagan and Vijayasai argued that they did not violate bail conditions and Raghurama filed the petitions against them for political reasons.

The CBI Court was convinced with Jagan and Vijayasai’s arguments and dismissed Raghurama’s petitions

After waiting for three weeks, Raghurama again filed a fresh petition in the Telangana High Court challenging CBI’s judgement.

The High Court is expected to hear the case after Dasara vacation till October 17.

NHRC notices to Andhra govt over delay in report on MP’s arrest

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued notices to the Andhra Pradesh government over the delay in submitting a report on the arrest of rebel YSRCP MP Raghuramakrishna Raju.

The NHRC had earlier sought for a report from the state government on the arrest of the MP.

On Tuesday, the commission expressed anger over the delay in filing the report and issued conditional summons to the state government.

The commission has ordered the state government to submit its report by August 9.

The MP’s son Bharat had approached the NHRC, after his father was arrested on sedition charges, by the AP CID in May this year.

The NHRC had ordered the Andhra Pradesh DGP to enquire into the MP’s allegations of being tortured while in custody.

The DGP was supposed to submit the report to the NHRC by June 7, but was delayed.

Curious case of Raghurama Krishna Raju, YSRCP’s Trojan horse

Kanumuru Raghurama Krishna Raju, rebel Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party Member of Parliament (MP) from Narasapuram constituency has emerged as an unlikely Trojan horse in the ruling dispensation of Andhra Pradesh.

Nobody expected that Raju would do politicking from within on several of the pet projects of YSRCP founder and Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, beginning with English medium education, three capitals and many others.

Though the Narasapuram MP himself attended English medium schools in Vijayawada and Chennai and reaped the benefits, he somehow went on to oppose the idea of English medium education for all school children, many of whom come from very poor background.

Abandoning his constituency, where several villages lack even potable drinking water, the MP with a penchant for flanking cinema stars and celebrities in photographs, mostly divided his time between his cozy environs of Hyderabad and Delhi.

Employing mockery, vulgar antics and disparaging expressions, Raju would directly attack the chief minister for reasons best known to him.

Entire AP and the Telugu diaspora are clueless as to why he is spewing venom on the CM, nobody knows what transpired between these two individuals.

Invoking religion, caste, reservations, the Christian minority institutions-educated Raju has been incessantly targeting the government and the CM for more than a year now.

Despite several demands from YSRCP legislators to expel him for anti-party activities and disobedience towards the CM, Raju never relented and instead claimed that he won the election with his own ‘glamour’ and money.

He even went to the extent of claiming that other MLAs in his constituency also won because of his name and fame, completely negating the tsunami of success wave ridden by Reddy.

In fact, Raju joined YSRCP some 10 days before the 2019 polls.

Though the Andhra chief minister is known for exacting complete discipline, obedience and loyalty from his subordinates, just like his late father and former CM Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy, Raju has curiously emerged as an aberration.

The Parliamentarian did not tone down his attacks on the CM and government even after undergoing a bypass surgery. In fact his attacks gained more ferocity after the surgery.

What appeared like preparing himself to shield from any retaliation from the government or his own party members for his activities, the Narasapuram MP met Speaker Om Birla, President Ram Nath Kovid and several other bigwigs in Delhi.

However, one fine day in May, AP CID police swooped on him in Hyderabad for being on the wrong side of the law with his vitriolic speeches against a caste and a religion.

Raju claimed that police beat him brutally in custody, an allegation which played a key role in him getting the bail.

But the bigger question is would a heart patient who had recently undergone bypass surgery stay alive after allegedly being meted out third degree torture by police?

Meanwhile, Raju started a war of letters against the government and CM claiming that many promises were not fulfilled.

In his latest letter to the Chief Minister, Raju alleged that senior YSRCP leader and Rajya Sabha MP V. Vijayasai Reddy is making ‘objectionable comments’ against Mansas Trust chairman Ashok Gajapati Raju.

Unlike Raju’s earlier videos in which he would abuse Reddy using his caste and other derogatory references, the MP kept his tone and tenor in the letters respectful and dignified, including addressing the CM as ‘dear sir’.

However, his observations on ‘objectionable comments’ did cause a surprise considering the lengths and depths of vulgarity Raju stooped to in his attacks on the government.

Raju does not have an impeccable record either. At a time when he is incessantly lecturing about morality, ethics, integrity and other virtues, another Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) case was recently registered against him for alleged bank forgery scam worth Rs 238 crore.

Recently, a group of Dalits who claimed to have voted for the Narasapuram MP lodged a complaint with the police to arrest him for failing to fulfill the promises he made during elections. They complained that the MP is always absent.

Despite all these developments, Raju has his legions of supporters and admirers. Upon his arrest and release on bail recently, a couple of large flexi posters sprung up in his home district, appreciating his ‘boldness’.

Meanwhile, there were reports a week ago that Raju;s name was struck off from YSRCP MPs list.

With another three more years left in his tenure as an MP, it remains to be seen what Raju will be upto? Will he start a new political party, as some of his supporters have commented, to ‘trounce’ Reddy’s YSRCP? Will contest as an independent? This space has to be watched.

Raju’s exclusion from YSRCP website takes a new turn!


YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju continues to trouble his party.

This time, over removal of his name from YSRCP official website.

The YSRCP has listed the names of all its Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members on its website.

Raju’s name was also there on this website all these days. But his name disappeared from the list all of a sudden on Saturday.

This made Raju angry who immediately dashed off a letter to YSRCP chief and Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

In the letter, Raju sought clarity from party chief to tell whether he has been dismissed from YSRCP.

Raju gave 48-hours time for Jagan to respond on this issue else he will file a petition with Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla to declare him as “Independent MP”.

Raju said the removal of his name from YSRCP MP’s list amounts to dismissal from the party and he will become Indepedent MP.

The anti-defection law will not attract Independent MPs. If Raju is declared as Independent MP, the YSRCP cannot even seek his disqualification for anti party activities or if he joins another party.

Rebel Raju sending letters to MPs on his ‘torture’


In addition to the wheelchair campaign in Delhi, rebel MP Raghurama Raju has begun sending letters to all the fellow Members of Parliament narrating how he was put to ‘custodial violence’. After going to Delhi, Raju became very active and returned to his original aggressive style despite the health limitations.

In the latest letters, Mr. Raju has claimed that he would be the first MP in the entire country to be ‘beaten up in police custody’ in a State. This is the first time ‘custodial third degree’ was used on a Member of Parliament anywhere in the country. As expected, the fellow MPs were starting to express shock and surprise at Raju’s plight.

Congress MP Manikkam Tagore went to the extent of posting Raju’s letter on Twitter. It took social media by storm. Tagore condemned the ‘custodial beating’ of the MP and described the Jagan Reddy regime as a ‘Hitler rule’.

Some MPs have stressed the need for all the members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to condemn with one voice the ‘third degree custodial torture’ used on a fellow MP. On his part, Raghurama Raju kept silent after sending his letters to the fellow MPs. The other YSRCP MPs are spending sleepless nights on how to explain their version in the national capital on the Raju conflict.

RRR complains to Rajnath Singh against Army Hospital registrar KP Reddy!


YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju on Sunday levelled sensational allegations against Army Hospital, Secunderabad registrar KP Reddy.

Raju has submitted a letter to union defense minister Rajnath Singh accusing KP Reddy of colluding and conspiring with APCID police to arrest him at Army Hospital and send him to Guntur jail.

Raju had undergone treatment at Army Hospital last week following the directions of Supreme Court after he alleged custodial torture by APCID sleuth in Guntur jail where he was beaten up and sustained injuries. Raju was arrested by APCID on sedition charges on May 14. However, Supreme Court granted him ‘conditional bail’ on May 21.

In his complaint to Rajnath, Raju said that KP Reddy conspired to discharge him from the Army Hospital early even before his recovery and handover him to APCID officials.

Raju also complained that KP Reddy allowed APCID officials in mufti to remain in hospital all the days when he had undergone treatment. He also submitted proofs of mess bills paid by Army Hospital to APCID officials to Rajnath Singh.

He complained that KP Reddy and TTD EO Dharma Reddy and Guntur SP Ammi Reddy conspired to hand over him to APCID officials.

It may be recalled that Raju rushed to Delhi by a special flight soon after his discharge from Army Hospital on May 26 and got admitted himself in AIIMS Delhi for further treatment.

Rajanth Singh assured that his ministry will conduct an inquiry into this issue and if proved guilty, KP Reddy will be punished as per law.

Raju 10-page letter to KCR: Hyderabad police collusion

Rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju is on a mission to write letters to top leaders in Delhi and Telugu States. He has sent a latest letter to Telangana CM K Chandrasekhara Rao, urging him to take action against the Hyderabad police. Hyderabad Commissioner of Police and Gachibowli police have cooperated with the AP police to illegally arrest him. He was then put to severe torture by masked men while in the police custody.

Mr. Raju held the Hyderabad police also accountable for the alleged custodial violence launched against him. In a way, the Telangana police have also given their support to the AP police to carry out their ill motivated arrest. In the 10-page letter sent to KCR, the rebel MP explained how he has been manhandled despite being a people’s representative.

RRR has written similar letters to the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister and other top dignitaries in the national capital. Raju’s allegations are raising political temperatures all over. Even after the sensational ‘custodial torture’ allegations, the rebel MP is not relenting and taking it as a matter of pride and prestige. Even journalists and colleagues close to him are saying that Raghurama Raju would not give up his fight for justice that easily. Whatever, the Raghurama episode has certainly caused some embarrassment at the national level. He has also criticised KCR in the past. Wait and see how KCR will respond to his letter now.

Army Clinic did not confirm Raju injuries: AP CID

The AP CID officers are making every effort possible to convince the people that they did not use ‘custodial torture’ against rebel MP Raghurama Raju. They have released a latest statement saying that the Army Hospital in Secunderabad did not say the MP suffered injuries in his legs. They further said that the Army Clinic’s report went along the same lines as that of the one given by the medical board of the Guntur General Hospital.

One critical issue that the CID officers are missing is the internal injuries and fracture on one toe that came out in the Army Clinic’s report. That has also suggested complete rest for the MP. Whereas, the GGH doctors said that the MP had no injuries at all and the red colour was because of the general edema. Based on the GGH report, the CID rushed the MP to the jail even though he was saying that he was not able to walk and that he needed immediate medical treatment.

Obviously, the latest CID statement came in the face of the Delhi AIIMS’ report which said that there was severe cell damage in the feet of Raghurama Raju. Such damage would not be possible in general edema conditions. Moreover, the Delhi AIIMS prescribed two weeks total rest and that the MP should not walk under any circumstances.

The Union Health Minister had also instructed the AIIMS Delhi Director to take special care of Raghurama Raju considering the serious circumstances involved in the process.

RRR discharged from Army Hospital, leaves for Delhi by special flight!


YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju was discharged from Army Hospital, Secunderabad, on Wednesday.

Soon after his discharge from the hospital, Raju headed straight to Begumpet airport, Hyderabad.

He took a special flight from Begumpet airport and left for Delhi.

Raju was admitted in the Army Hospital last week for medical examination and treatment following the directions of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has also granted him ‘conditional bail’ in the sedition filed by APCID against him.

Raju complained that he sustained severe injuries due to custodial torture by APCID, which filed a sedition case against him for making derogatory remarks against AP CM YS Jagan and YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh.

The medical report of Army Hospital revealed that Raju sustained injuries.

However, Raju’s visit to Delhi straight from Hyderabad has triggered speculations over the purpose of his visit and whom he will meet there.

Supreme Court had directed Raju to cooperate with APCID in case investigation and attend for inquiry whenever it summons him.

Contempt notice to Guntur SP in RRR bail case

The Supreme Court of India has given bail to rebel MP Raghurama Raju but the controversy surrounding the case has not died down. Once the YCP regime targets somebody, the officers concerned will be on that task all seven days a week. Now, Guntur SP Ammi Reddy has reportedly ordered the escort staff of Raghurama Raju to bring him to Guntur once he is released from the Army Hospital in Secunderabad.

This sounded alarm among the lawyers arguing for Mr. Raju. They questioned how the Guntur Urban SP could unilaterally try to take Raju into custody once again even after the bail given by the highest court. Suspicions arose then whether RRR would be harassed by slapping some other case.

Whatever, Raju’s lawyers immediately sent a notice to SP Ammi Reddy and accused him of committing contempt of the Supreme Court order. The notice was sent to the SP’s official WhatsApp phone number. The SP was said to have told the escort staff that the surety formalities would have to be taken up. That was something outside of the SP’s jurisdiction.

Actually, the Apex Court has given 10 days time from the date of release of Mr. Raju to submit his sureties for bail. Once the MP is released on bail, the police have nothing to do with him. The lawyers argue that

Slight delay in RRR’s release from Army Clinic


Two days passed since the Supreme Court of India gave bail to YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju. But, the procedural delays have postponed his release from the Army Hospital Secunderabad until Monday. The family members of Raju met him at the Army Clinic along with his lawyers.

In all probability, the SC bail orders will be submitted before the CID court in Guntur tomorrow. The release orders are expected by Monday evening when Mr. Raju will be released from the hospital. The doctors at the Army Hospital have told Raju’s family members that the MP has fully recovered and he is free to go. The only hurdles remaining are the release procedures. They are waiting from the court’s release orders.

In accordance with the court’s orders, the rebel MP and his family members have not made any comments against the AP Government or the CID police. The Apex Court has set a precondition for the Raju and his family not to talk about the ‘custodial torture’ nor the Army Hospital report in public. On the other hand, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu has quoted the Army report as confirming a fracture on the left leg toe and also injuries in the right leg.

Raju crossed limits: AP tells Supreme Court


The Jaganmohan Reddy Government defended its actions with regard to the arrest of rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju who later complained of ‘custodial torture’ by the AP CID. The AP regime filed a 119-page affidavit in the Supreme Court to support its actions of filing a sedition case against Mr. Raju. The YSRCP Government asserted that the MP was creating disaffection and disharmony leading to violent clashes between castes and religions in AP.

The sedition case was filed in response to a whole lot of instances involving Mr. Raju’s destabilising activities but not one or two incidents. The MP crossed all limits despite the fact that as a representative of people, he should maintain certain standards. It was found out that the MP has conspired to destabilise and dislodge the Jagan Reddy Government by joining hands with some other persons in the State.

The Jagan regime told the Supreme Court that it should leave the bail application plea case of Raghurama Raju to the lower courts in AP just like how it did with regard to the arrest cases of Hardik Patel, Akhil Gogoi and others in the past.

The AP Government’s affidavit in the apex court was quite contrary to Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy’s recent statement that their Government had nothing to do with the Raghurama Rama arrest or subsequent happenings.

Army clinic sends rebel Raju report to Supreme Court


The Army Hospital in Secunderabad has completed the medical tests on YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju. It has already sent the report in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court of India. Along with this, the medical examination was videgraphed from start to finish. The video footage was also sent to the Apex Court.

The Army clinic conducted the tests under the supervision of the Telangana High Court Judicial Registrar D. Nagarjuna. He was present at the time of the tests and videographing of the tests. The Army doctors have also taken the services of a skin specialist from outside to find out if there were any psoriasis related injuries on the MP’s legs.

The Army doctors kept the whole procedure a top secret. The media was not allowed anywhere near the hospital. All sources of communication were cut off. Judicial Registrar Nagarjuna handed over the seale cover containing the Army clinic’s report to the High Court, which in turn immediately sent the same to the Supreme Court.

The Army doctors said that MP Raghurama’s medical condition was stable now and there was no harm to his health. The MP would be allowed to stay at the hospital till further orders from the Supreme Court.

Conspiracy to kill me: Rebel MP at Army Hospital

YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju is going to undergo medical tests at the Army Hospital in Secunderabad at 11 a.m. today. The AP CID police shifted him to Hyderabad around midnight. The Supreme Court has issued orders allowing Raghurama to remain in the Army Hospital for further treatment even after the tests. The Army doctors will now confirm whether the red colour and swellings on his legs were caused by beating or they were just psoriasis skin disease.

Mr. Raju spoke a few words to the media and his well wishers at the Army hospital. He said that he was being politically victimised and targetted. There was a conspiracy going on to kill me, he said.

The family members have also called on rebel Raju at the Army Hospital. They expressed concern over the way a political opponent was ill treated in Andhra Pradesh. All this attack was only because Mr. Raju was not fulfilling their demand for withdrawing the Jagan Reddy bail cancellation petition in the CBI court.
The MP thanked his lawyers for bringing immediate court relief to him. The Supreme Court has also ordered that the MP may continue his treatment at the Army Hospital till his full recovery and that period should be considered as a judicial custody.

GGH ‘confusing report’ on leg injuries of rebel MP

The Government General Hospital (GGH), Guntur, has given a mutually self-contradictory report to the court on the injuries allegedly suffered by Narsapuram MP Raghurama Krishna Raju. The GGH superintendent and other doctors involved just gave a straight report that they could see no injuries on the legs or on the body of Mr. Raju. At the same time, these doctors have mentioned in their report that there is inflammation on his legs and red colour.

However, the GGH doctors have not explained why the red colour has come up and what would have been the reason for the inflammation. They went to tell the court that there were no outward physical injuries on the MP’s body. While Mr. Raju was saying that he was feeling pain because of the injuries, the doctors have declared him as hale and healthy fit to be put behind the bars.

Based on the GGH doctors’ report, the AP CID wasted no time to shift Raghurama to the Guntur sub-jail. His lawyers once again approached the High Court and got immediate shifting orders to the Ramesh Hospital. But their efforts did not bring good results.

Mr. Raju’s lawyers waited till late in night. As the MP was kept in the jail itself, his lawyers said that the CID officers were violating the orders of both the CID court and the High Court of Andhra Pradesh.

Raghurama reading Naidu script: Peddireddy


Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy has launched a scathing attack on Chandrababu Naidu and Raghurama Raju. He said that Chandrababu Naidu was doing secret deals only to defame the YCP Government. Raghurama Raju was acting like a ‘bantrothu’ for the yellow media which was carrying out all nonsensical statements being made by him.

Peddireddy blamed Rajugaru for ‘reading out’ the script already given by Chandrababu Naidu. The yellow media was distorting the YCP leaders’ statements deliberately. Everybody knew how Chandrababu has earned his property.

Peddireddy challenged Raghurama Raju to resign and go for fresh election if he had really his own strength in his constituency. It was only with the support of CM Jagan Reddy that Raju could become an MP. Otherwise, he would not become even a ward member.

Peddireddy further said that Raghurama Raju had no moral right to criticise the Chief Minister. Chandrababu was not acting like a responsible Opposition leader in the State.

RRR plea for a non-Christian, non-Reddy officer


CM Jaganmohan Reddy has ordered a CID probe into the Ramatheertham idol desecration case. The CM is facing all round criticism for not taking prompt action in this one respect. It is because the cutting off of the head of Ram idol has hurt the sentiment of crores of the Hindus all over the world.

Now, YCP rebel MP Raghu Rama Raju has asked the Chief Minister to change his order. RRR said that a non-Christian and non-Reddy officer should be ordered to investigate the incident. He gave his own apparent reasons for his demand. It is because the Chief Minister is a Christian, so is the Home Minister and so is the DGP.

Very alarmingly, even the CID head Sunil Kumar is a Christian. RRR has come out a with a timely doubt whether justice would be done to the Hindus if such an all Christian heirarchy is there on the top. What more, even the District SP is a Christian. All this is giving rise to further doubts among the devotees.

After a long time, Raghu Rama is once again stirring controversies. It is solely because he and his family are ardent devotees of Lord Rama.

Rebel YSRCP MP Raju denies he’s severely ill, says doing fine


Categorically denying reports that he is severely ill, rebel YSRCP MP Kanumuru Raghu Rama Krishna Raju asserted that he is rather doing fine and flayed his political detractors for wishing that he does not enjoy good health.

“I am in completely good health and will be in touch with you,” said the member of Parliament from Narasapuram in Andhra Pradesh’s West Godavari district in a video message to his supporters.

His comments assume significance as he recently underwent an open-heart surgery. “My surgery at Mumbai’s Asian Heart Institute by Dr Ramakanth Panda was very successful. He performed a surgery on Dr Manmohan Singh as well in the past,” said Raju.

“I did not suffer any heart attack. Fortunately, I had a doubt and with the blessings of Lord Venkateshwara went for tests. A few blockades were identified, and as a precautionary measure I underwent a bypass surgery as a long-term solution,” said the 58-year-old politician.

Following his surgery, many of his detractors who were not happy with his open rebellion against Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy started attacking him in the virtual world.

“Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party’s social media people have become very bad. They are claiming that I am severely ill. This is what they wish — they wish for my illness,” Raju claimed.

Reiterating that he was doing fine, he pointed out that he had already given some interviews (in the media), which will be followed by more in the coming days, signalling his gradual return to public life.

“Recently, I gave an interview for 45 minutes. Today, I gave another interview. In the coming days, I will give more interviews,” he said.

Meanwhile, he claimed that Amaravati will remain the capital of Andhra Pradesh. He pointed out that the months-long protest against the trifurcation of Amaravati will complete a year on December 17.

Unlike his earlier video messages that are allegedly heavily laced with sarcasm, innuendos, and histrionics, Raju kept his video message sober this time in a low voice.

Meanwhile, YSRCP leaders from West Godavari district claimed that Raju had not visited his constituency for a very long time. “Any YSRCP candidate could have won the 2019 Narasapuram election propelled by the CM’s leadership and vision. It was our misfortune that we elected Raju who seldom visits the constituency to resolve people’s problems,” a local leader told IANS.

They alleged that Raju was giving unsolicited advice to the Chief Minister on the Eluru issue when he himself didn’t care to resolve the drinking water crisis in his own constituency.

Jagan takes sweet revenge but RRR gives strong counter


Pro-YCP and social media began ridiculing rebel MP Raghu Rama Raju, saying that he has been finally removed from the Subordinate Legislature Parliamentary Standing Committee Chairman post. This issue has been raging between Raju and YCP for over three months. The post has a one year term which has completed now. RRR says that his Chairman term has expired now which is why the YCP got a chance to fill it up with its favoured MP.

Actually, this particular post was not given to RRR last year in the YCP quota. He used his own individual influence in BJP Delhi leaders and got it. As such, Rajugaru says that this post is his donation to Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy and his party MPs. He further clarified that nobody has removed him from the post. He asked why the ruling YCP could not remove him three months ago when YCP MPs also gave a letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker.

Raju mocked Jagan Reddy, saying that his post was now given to a non-Reddy which was okay. But, there was a new angle. This time, Jagan Reddy gave this post to a Christian. MP Balashowry is preferred because of his religious background.

RRR also ridiculed YCP threats to disqualify him. The rebel MP mockingly said that very soon, it would become clear who would actually be disqualified.

Om Birla gives shock to RRR


In a big shock to YSRCP Lok Sabha MP from Narsapuram Raghurama Krishnam Raju, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Bira has removed him as the chairman of the Subordinate Legislation Committee. A notification to this effect was released by the Lok Sabha Speaker.

The Lok Sabha Speaker appointed YSRCP Lok Sabha MP from Machilipatnam Vallabhaneni Balashowri as the chairman of the Subordinate Legislation Committee with effect from October 9. Additionally, the Lok Sabha Speaker appointed members to the Subordinate Legislation Committee, including Telangana Lok Sabha MP Nama Nageshwar Rao. Nageswara Rao ran infrastructure company Madhucon Projects. Other members of the committee include

The Lok Sabha Speaker cracked the whip on Raghurama Krishnan Raju after a group of MPs led by Rajya Sabha MP Vijayasai Reddy moved a disqualification petition against Raju for allegedly violating the party discipline by openly commenting against the party president, opposing the policy decisions of the government, making wild allegations against party MPs and even questioning the status of the party. The YSRCP MPs submitted a memorandum to Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla in New Delhi. The memorandum was signed by YSRC MP from Rajahmundry Margani Bharat on behalf of president and chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Vijaysai Reddy also had issued a show-cause notice to Raju. On his part, Raju has questioned the legal sanctity of the show-cause notice stating that the show-cause notice was served on YSR Congress party letterhead, while the part’s name as per the EC records is registered as Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party. Raju had also moved the Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking to stall the attempts of the YSRC to disqualify him from the Lok Sabha membership and suspend him from the party.

With the Lok Sabha Speaker removing Raju as the chairman of the Subordinate Legislation Committee, it remains to be seen if the Lok Sabha MP will be disqualified. That is the big questions doing the rounds in political circles.

The CBI had recently booked Raju in connection with an alleged loan default case. The CBI had registered based on a complaint from Punjab National Bank, against the borrower, power company Ind Barath, allegedly causing a loss of approximately Rs 826 crore to Punjab National Bank and other consortium banks.

Raju has been critical of the YSRCP government over a host of issues, including the government’s plans to introduce English medium education in all the government schools, opposed the auction of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam’s properties, and raised the alleged diversion of sand for sale in the black market. Raju often claimed that he was never given an audience by Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy to discuss these issues.
