BIG RELIEF TO KOMATIREDDY, SAMPATH HC dismisses TRS MLAs’ plea on expulsion of Cong MLAs OUR BUREAU Hyderabad: Holding that it is only the state legislature which can prefer an appeal against the order of the single judge and not individual MLAs, the High Court at Hyderabad has dismissed the Writ Appeal ﬁled by the 12 TRS MLAs challenging the order of the single judge who had set aside the resolution of the Telangana Legislative Assembly on March 13 expelling two Congress MLAs Ko- matireddy Venkat Reddy and S A Sampath Kumar from the membership of the Assembly and directed restoration of their membership. In a 55-page judgment authored by the Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan, the division bench comprising Justice Ranganathan and Justice K Vijayalakshmi rejected the argument advanced by the senior Supreme Court counsel C S Vaidyanathan on behalf of the 12 TRS MLAs that besides the Legislative Assembly, each of its members have the power and privilege to expel another member. “It is the Legislative Assembly, as a Constitutional entity, which expels its members for contempt, and is a power collectively exercised by all the members of the House, and not individually. The right to expel a member from the House is conferred on the Legislative Assembly as a body created under the Constitution, and no member can claim any individual right, power or privilege to have another member expelled from the House,” it was made clear by the bench. The court further stated that the possibility of the appellants (12 TRS MLAs) being remotely or indirectly affected by the order under appeal, as they had voted in favour of the resolution passed by the House, would not justify an appeal being entertained at their behest.
