Konda Murali moves high court for MLC post

Congress MLC Konda Murali filed a petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court challenging his disqualification as member of State Legislative Council by its chairman Dr A Chakrapani under anti-party activities. In his petition, Konda Murali alleged that Council Chairman Chakrapani acted at the behest of Congress leaders and disqualified him without hearing his version. Instead of following the established rules and regulations of legislature in initiating action against him, Konda Murali said that Chakrapani acted as per the directions of Congress whip Sivarami Reddy.

It may be mentioned that Konda Murali was disqualified based on the complaint lodged by Congress whip Sivarami Reddy that he was indulging in anti-party activities by moving closer with the YSR Congress party
