On Tuesday, the Telangana State Legislative Assembly expelled two Congress Legislators. Congress MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and A. Sampath were expelled after the ruckus created the previous day. The House also suspended 11 Congress members for the rest of the Budget Session of the State Legislature.
During the Budget Session MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy threw his headphones injuring TRS Legislative Council Chairperson Swamy Goud in the eye. Goud was rushed to Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital in Hyderabad. Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan was giving his speech at the Assembly when the Congress party began protesting.
During this ruckus, the headphones were thrown by the Congress MLA. This led to the session being adjourned for the day. Swamy Goud was seen walking out of the Assembly with a seriously injured eye.
The doctors treating Goud said his cornea was damaged and would be kept under observation till Tuesday. The Congress was protesting the Government’s poor response to the ongoing agricultural crisis.
The TRS members were unhappy with the Congress’ behavior in the House and called for strict action against Congress MLA Venkat Reddy. The TRS members have also alleged that some of the Congress members were drunk during the Budget Session.
As the House assembled today for the Session, Legislative Affairs Minister T. Harish Rao moved a resolution for the suspension and expulsion of Congress members. The resolutions were approved via voice note.
