Hyderabad: The Assembly chief marshal, Mr Arthur, has submitted a detailed report on the attack on Lok Satta party member, Dr Jayaprakash Narayan, on the Assembly premises recently.
The chief marshal earlier recorded statements of the TRS MLAs, Mr Eetela Rajender, Mr T. Harish Rao and Mr Vidyasagar.
The TRS MLAs reportedly told the Chief Marshal that in fact, they rushed towards the Lok Satta MLA to protect him from being attacked by others. They said that it pained them that Dr Jayaprakash, who was elected from Telangana, was speaking against the statehood and was asking for imposition of President’s rule. They said that they went to him only to question him about his stand and tried to prevent others from attacking him. (NSS)
