    The Court had already disqualified Venkateshwara Rao and appointed Jalagam Venkata Rao as the MLA from December 12, 2018. Jalagam Venkata Rao tried to meet with Telangana Legislative Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy and the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) to hand over the judgment copy and take the oath as MLA. However, the BRS leader handed over the documents to the Legislative Secretary. The Speaker will make a decision on Venkata Rao’s application based on the Election Commission’s directions.
