Vijayasai Reddy removed from Rajya Sabha panel of vice-chairmen, a day after re-nomination
In a dramatic turn of events, YSRCP Rajya Sabha Member V Vijayasai Reddy was removed from the panel of vice-chairmen
NEW DELHI: In a dramatic turn of events, YSRCP Rajya Sabha Member V Vijayasai Reddy was on Wednesday removed from the panel of vice-chairmen for the Upper House of Parliament. Ironically, the development comes within 24 hours of the YSRCP MP thanking Vice-President and Chairman of Rajya Sabha Jagdeep Dhankar for re-nominating him to the panel for a fresh tenure.
The Rajya Sabha Chairman released a revised panel list on Wednesday after incorporating some changes to it. Effectively, the names of Vijayasai Reddy, Indubala Goswami and Vandana Chavan, who were among those nominated earlier, were removed from the revised list. Saroj Pandey and Surendra Singh Nagar are among those who made their way into the revised list.
The reasons for the removal of the earlier names including Vijayasai Reddy's were not immediately known.
Interestingly, the YSRCP Rajya Sabha MP in his tweet on Tuesday expressed his gratitude to Jagdeep Dhankar for re-nominating him for the vice-chairmen panel for a fresh term. While extending his greetings to the eight MPs who figured on the list on Tuesday, Vijayasai Reddy vowed to do his best to ensure smooth functioning of the Upper House.
The YSRCP MP was earlier nominated to the Rajya Sabha panel of vice-chairmen during Venkaiah Naidu's tenure as the Vice-President.
