“We will meet the Speaker at the appointed time and pursue our case. We will explain our stand and we see no reason why she should not accept our resignations,” Rajamohan Reddy said.
Whether the Lok Sabha Speaker would accept the resignations and gave way to by-elections to the five seats emptied by the parliamentarians, seems to be hanging as a big question mark.
Nevertheless, both the Telugu Desam Party and the YSRC are gearing up for any eventuality.
