Opposition party leaders have been demanding the resignation of Talasani to his MLA post as he was elected on TDP ticket. Even, the TDP and Congress leaders of Telangana have brought this issue to the notice of the Assembly Speaker and Governor. Leaders said that a petition was filed in the Hyderabad High Court seeking his disqualification as he has been serving as Minister in the cabinet without being elected from TRS. It is reportedly learnt that the Speaker might initiate action if the HC takes up the matter. As per the Assembly records, Talasani is still a TDP MLA.
