TDP to approach SC on MLC poll voters list

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) is contemplating to approach the Supreme Court against inclusion of names of TRS MLA Chennamaneni Ramesh and nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson in the voters’ list for the MLC elections under MLA quota to be held on June 1 in Telangana.
TDP deputy floor leader in the assembly A Revanth Reddy said Ramesh was not eligible to vote as per the earlier apex court directions. The TRS MLA was barred from participating in voting for having dual citizenship in India and Germany. He said the Constitution had also not allowed the nominated MLAs to vote in the Legislative Council election.
Taking a serious view of the issue, the party would file a petition in the court, he said. Appealing to all legislators, particularly the TDP MLAs who recently joined ruling TRS, to vote consciously and uphold the democratic spirit, Reddy said cases should be booked against Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for encouraging defections in Opposition parties.
