Resenting the comments made by Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, ``calling him a  rowdy’’ Dayakar Rao submitted his resignation letter  to Speaker  Kiran Kumar Reddy.  In the resignation letter he mentioned that he was very much hurt by the comments  made by  the CM.  ``I was very much upset over the remarks made by the CM on me, ‘’ he further  added.

Testifying his clean conduct as a representative of the people, he quoted in his letter  that he was elected four times as an MLA and one time  as an MP and not even once did he retort to rowdyism. ``Assembly is not a place for rowdies but If the speaker feels that I am a  rowdy  then he is  free to hold an inquiry against me and if established then he should accept my resignation,’’ he explained.

Errabally Dayakar Rao represents Pallakurty assembly in Warangal district. Opposition parties call for lifting of suspension:

Meanwhile floor leaders of various opposition parties called for the lifting of suspension on Daykar Rao.

Praja Rajyam party leader K Chiranjeevi said that the decision of the speaker in  suspending on Dayakar Rao is  unilateral. The incidents which occurred in the House on Wednesday morning were unfortunate.

Communist Party  of India MLA  Mallesh was of the view that the Chief Minister should not have made such comments on  Dayakar.  Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Kishen Reddy  felt that others should  not   pass any comments while  a member is addressing the assembly.

Communist Party Marxist  MLA J Ranga Rao said that the Chief Minister withdraw his statement s he made against Dayakar Rao. Loksatta leader Jaiprakash Narayan  expressed  his view saying that the Chief Minister should maintain the norms of the House and  discussions should be held in a proper manner. He  further added that those members who indulge  in provocative actions in the assemble should be  severely dealt with.  The suspension on dayakar rao should be lifted  the floor leader of Loksatta  felt. CM denies  calling Dayakar  Rao a rowdy.

In the midst of all this controversy, Chief Minster Dr Rajasekhar Reddy denied calling  Dayakar Rao a  rowdy. Infact it is Dayakar Rao who said ``come out we will see,’’ ``I am not a person who comes out in the public to settle such a affairs,’’ the  CM  quipped.

Finance Minister  K. Rosaiah backed CM’s statement  saying that the CM did not call him a rowdy. Shooting a question directly on the all the floor leaders of the party in the house he said ``all the  floor leaders have advised us on this issue but did any of you request Dayakar Rao to leave the house respectfully.’’ 

Not good on part of YSR to speak lies

``It is not good on the part of Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy to speak lies in the assembly holding such a prestigious position in the state,’’ said Chandra babu Naidu reacting to the  remarks made by the CM on his party member E Dayakar Rao.  Did the CM hear the statement made by Dayakar ``come out we will see’’, he questioned. You can ask any one in the  assembly  whether Dayakar Rao made such a statement, the TDP chief challenged.

``In case if it is established that Dayakar made such a statement then I will definitely ask him to tender an apology,’’ Chandrababu Naidu said confidently.
