Hyderabad, July 25 :-
Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy on Saturday called upon the newly elected Legislators to uphold the highest traditions of the House.
Inaugurating the two-day training classes for newly elected Congress MLAs at Human Resources Development Centre, he said the MLAs should work as a team and individual aggrandizement would not be allowed.
He said that every member should keep in mind that a huge amount of public money is spent to conduct the proceedings in the House and every minute was precious.
He asked the MLAs to act as bridge between people and party in taking the government schemes to needy. “This is a key session of the Assembly which will have to be used as a platform to tackle the problems faced by people,” he told MLAs.
He said the legislators performance would be reviewed from time to time with the help of different agencies and they would be given ratings accordingly.
He said restoring the honour of the State Legislative Assembly by striving for meaningful discussions and taking up people’s problems would be his party’s endeavor for the next five years in the 13th Assembly.
He said that he wanted every MLA of the party to have a good knowledge of the subjects of their interest and speak well on the floor of the House. Since people would be watching their performance, the legislature party had a huge responsibility, he cautioned them.
The Chief Minister is also said to have cautioned MLAs against being ‘overconfident’ after their victory in the recent elections and asked them not to be ‘overenthusiastic’ in wielding authority. “People would teach a fitting lesson to such legislators who take credit for their victory,” he added.
Pradesh Congress Committee president D Srinivas was also present at the meeting which was attended by 140 MLAs and 42 MLCs.
