Hyderabad, Dec 18 (IANS) YSR Congress legislator Roja was on Friday suspended from the Andhra Pradesh assembly for one year for her unparliamentary behaviour in the house.
Speaker K. Sivaprasad Rao announced her suspension after Legislative Affairs Minister Y. Ramakrishnudu moved a resolution.
Ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP) members sought Roja’s suspension alleging that she behaved in an uncivilized manner by making serious remarks against Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu when the latter was making a statement on the call money racket.
Roja, the actress-turned-politician, was in the forefront among opposition legislators in raising slogans against Naidu.
The chief minister also alleged that some opposition legislators rushed towards him to attack him. There was din in the House when Naidu claimed that majority of those arrested for charging high interest belong to the opposition party.
