Riled by govt inaction, Aruna readies to quit

Hyderabad: The senior Congress leader and MLA D K Aruna, in a dramatic move, on Saturday sent in her resignation letter to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. The move raised many an eyebrow.

Speaking to media persons at Gandhi Bhavan, Aruna said since the TRS government was not willing to form Gadwal district, she sent her resignation to the Chief Minister and requested him to forward it to the Speaker. 

Aruna, who has been spearheading campaign for Gadwal district, said the people of Gadwal demanded a separate district and conducted several padayatras and dharnas to press for it. Yet, KCR had chosen not to respond to their demand. Hence, she decided to resign.  

But surprisingly, the Congress leader did not draft her resignation letter in Speaker’s format. As per the rules when a Member of Parliament or a State Assembly resigns, he or she should send a one line letter saying, “Sir, I hereby tender my resignation of my seat in the House with effect from......”

According to Lok Sabha secretariat, if a member hands over the letter of resignation to the Speaker personally and informs him that the resignation is voluntary and genuine and the Speaker has no information or knowledge to the contrary, the Speaker may accept the resignation immediately.

If the Speaker receives the letter of resignation either by post or through someone else, the Speaker may make such inquiry as he/she thinks fit to satisfy himself/herself that the resignation is voluntary and genuine. 

If the Speaker, after making a summary inquiry either himself/herself or through the agency of Lok Sabha Secretariat or through such other agency, as he may deem it fit, is satisfied that the resignation is not voluntary or genuine, he shall not accept the resignation. The letter would be rejected if it is not in Speaker’s format. 

The two page letter written by Aruna is not in Speaker’s format and explains how people of her constituency have been agitating for Gadwal district and how the State government has not taken their plea into consideration. 

Talking to The Hans India over phone she said she had chosen to send the letter to the Chief Minister since he happened to be the leader of the House. If necessary she would send another letter to the Speaker in Speaker’s format, she added.

Meanwhile another Congress MLA C Vamshi Chandra Reddy also offered to resign from the Assembly since the government had not agreed for his demand to make Kalwakurthy as a Revenue Division. He also announced that he would not re-contest the by-elections and would support the TRS candidate if State government created Kalwakurthy Revenue Division.  

Reacting to this, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Saturday termed Aruna’s resignation from the Assembly membership as “a mere drama” and alleged that the Congress leader was trying to derive political mileage.
