Hyderabad: Hyderabad City Police Commissioner Mr. AK Khan on Tuesday met the Speaker of Legislative Assembly N. Manohar apparently to clarify on an issue related to protocol violation.
On the occasion of Independence Day on Monday, a police official has reportedly snatched Telangana flags from suspended TDP MLA Nagam Janardhan Reddy. This matter has reportedly been treated as a violation of protocol, by both the Speaker and Mr. Nagam. The police have no jurisdiction in the premises of entire legislative assembly and it cannot act without the permission of the Speaker. However, Monday’s incident wherein a flag was snatched from the suspended TDP MLA was done without Speaker’s instructions or consent.
The City Police Commissioner has reportedly given clarification on the entire issue to the Speaker. If the policemen are found guilty of protocol violation, the Speaker has the powers to take direct action against the officials. (INN)
