Mahabubabad MP Porika Naik Balram on Wednesday demanded suspension of Bhadrachalam MLA K Satyavathi for violating party diktat and participating in Jal Deeksha staged by former Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in New Delhi on Tuesday.
Talking to media persons after lodging a complaint in this regard to Pradesh Congress Committee president D Srinivas and Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Balram Naik said that the MLA had brought disrepute to the party by participating in Jagan’s Deeksha.
Mr Naik said the party image has been damaged badly in Khammam district due to Ms Satyavati openly extending support to former MP. He alleged that Mr Jaganmohan Reddy had lured her with his ill-gotten money. Demanding suspension of Ms Satyavathi from the party, Mr Naik lodged a complaint to PCC Chief at Gandhi Bhavan. He later told media persons that the PCC chief has assured to take strong disciplinary action against Ms Satyavati for her anti-party activities.
Mr Naik also said that Mr Srinivas had already sent a detailed report on the list of those who participated in the Jagan’s Jal Deeksha to the High command. The High Command after conducting enquiry would initiate action against all rebel MLAs, the MP said.
