TRS MLAs say they did not vote for other parties

"We did not vote for the candidate of another party. We are deeply pained over the party's (TRS's) decision to suspend us. We appeal to the party leadership to reconsider the decision," the MLAs, E Ravinder Reddy, K Vidyasagar Rao and Kaveti Sammaiah, told reporters here today.

Reddy said they had been committed workers of the TRS for the last 10 years.
Asserting that they had never succumbed to temptations earlier, he wondered why they would do such a thing now, when formation of separate Telangana appeared to be a certainty.

Replying to a query, the MLAs said they were not interested in clinging to their posts but wanted the taint (of cross-voting) to go.

TRS, late last night, decided to suspend the three MLAs for allegedly voting for Congress.
