Hyderabad: YSR Congress Party on Monday said the
Congress MLAs, loyal to Kadapa MP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, are
ready for disqualification, as they had voted against the
ruling Congress government during the no-confidence motion in
December last.

The Congress government is not ready to face bypolls for
the Assembly seats, held by the 17 Jagan-loyalist Congress
MLAs, now, the YSR Congress claimed.

"The Congress government in the state, having no
confidence whatsoever to face the elections, is informally
requesting the Speaker to delay his decision on
disqualification so as to gain time and to ensure that the
by-elections to these vacancies are not clubbed with that of
the existing seven vacancies," a letter released by YSR
Congress, on behalf of the Jagan-loyalist MLAs, said.

In the letter, addressed to the Election Commission, the
MLAs requested that the announcement of schedule for the
bypolls to the seven seats be deferred till the first week of
April.
