Hyderabad: Two MLAs from Telangana, Somarapu
Satyanarayana and T Rajaiah, who resigned from their posts as
well as Congress party to join the Telangana Rasthra Samiti
(TRS) met Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar today to present
their case.

While Somarapu, who represents Ramagundam in Karimnagar
district, requested the Speaker not to accept his resignation,
Station Ghanpur MLA Rajaiah said he stood by his decision to
quit.
"I have requested the Speaker not to accept my
resignation," Somarapu told newsmen. Rajaiah said he stood by
his resignation but left the decision on this to the Speaker`s
discretion.

The Ramagundam MLA said he would move a privilege motion
against the local police officials who kept him under
house-arrest recently when district minister D Sridhar Babu
conducted the government`s mass contact Rachchabanda programme
in the constituency.
Another MLA Jupally Krishna from Kollapur in Mahbubnagar
district, who too quit his post as well as the Congress party
along with Somarapu and Rajaiah, met the Speaker last evening
and claimed to have requested the latter to `accept` his
resignation.

Speaker Manohar left for Tirupati this afternoon and will
return to the state capital on 26. He is expected to take a
final decision on the pending resignations by the end of this
month as the winter session of the state Legislature is
scheduled to begin on December 1.
