YCP senior MLA Tammineni Sitaram was today elected Speaker of the AP Legislative Assembly unanimously. CM Jaganmohan Reddy said that Sitaram would conduct the House in an effective way as he had got decades of experience in legislature. Opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu recalled various capacities in which Sitaram had served before.
YCP members broke into a round of applause when Jagan pointed out that his party would not defame the House like before when they encouraged defections and made defected MLAs Ministers. The YCP MLAs tried to obstruct Chandrababu Naidu who hit back saying that the ruling party would see how the TDP would continue its agitation.
Jagan has said that he would not rush to strip the TDP of its opposition status and TDP MLAs would have to resign from their memberships before joining the YCP if they like.
