VIJAYAWADA: TDP MLC Deepak Reddy on Monday filed a petition in the High Court seeking a directive to the Secretary, Parliamentary Affairs, and the Lok Sabha Secretary General to ensure that Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council Abolition Bill was not introduced in Parliament.

He named the Chief Secretary, Assembly secretary, law secretary, parliamentary affairs secretary, Lok Sabha secretary general and YSRC president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as respondents.
