YSRC rebel MLC Indukuri disqualified

Vijayawada: YSRC rebel MLC Indukuri Raghu Raju has been disqualified under the anti-defection law. AP Legislative Council chairman Koyye Moshenu Raju issued a disqualification order on Monday.

The council chairman’s decision comes after Indukuri failed to turn up for the in-person hearings on May 27 and May 31, 2024. Indukuri Raghu Raju reportedly remained in touch with the Telugu Desam leader Nara Lokesh and conspired to defeat Srungavarapukota (S Kota) candidate Kadubandi Srinivasa Rao and Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha candidate Botsa Jhansi, both belonged to the YSRC.

The MLC crossed over to the TD from the YSRC. Following this, the YSRC whip, Palavalasa Vikrant, filed a complaint with the council chairman about his defection. Subsequently, the chairman issued summons to Raghu Raju and asked him to appear before the Legislative Council in person. However, he skipped the hearing twice, citing health reasons.
