Adding more confusion to the ‘resignation controversy’ Telangana commercial taxes minister Talasani Srinivas Yadava said he had resigned from Assembly way back in December itself.
He said he was moving around with a copy of the letter in the pocket. He flaunted it to the benefit of media.
Talasani had to give this clarification following pressure from Telugu Desam party and Congress for his resignation from Assembly as he defected from TDP to TRS.
He repeatedly claimed that the did submit his resignation letter to the speaker.
T-Congress , however, sought a copy of the resignation letter from Assembly speaker’s office under RTI Act. The speaker’s office clarified that it had not received any resignation letter from Talasani Srinivas Yadav. Later on Congress launched a campaign that Talasani had lied to the Assembly speaker, Governor and the chief minister. They demanded the governor that Talasani be booked under 420.
TDP also picked up the battle and yesterday staged a dharna before Raj Bhavan protesting govenor’s inaction on the resignation controversy of TDP member who is now in TRS . This forced Talasani to address media conference to clarify on the status of his resignation. He also said the was ready to face by-election.
Then who is lying, Talasani or Speaker’s office? Why is it that the speaker not accepting the resignation? How come a constitutional authority misleads Congress when it sought information under RTI? Let us see how things will unfold in the next couple of days.
