After several adjournments on the issue of party defections, Telangana Assembly started its session very late today. Today also, Congress MLAs raised the topic of party defections and asked for a discussion on this. In reply to criticism that he was also a defector , opposition leader Jana Reddy said it was true that he defected party in 1989 but he clarified that opposing his nomination as politburo member, he quit the party along with his assembly membership and joined Congress only after one year. To this, Harish Rao countered that this is unrelated discussion and only speaker has judiciary rights on this.
