SC will have to set timeline for Speakers in future: GVL Narasimha Rao on SC's verdict

In a major relief to the shaky Congress-JDS coalition, the Supreme Court on Wednesday said that the Karnataka Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar cannot be forced to take a decision within a time frame on the resignations of the rebel MLAs. Speaking on this issue, BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said, "Supreme Court in its final verdict will have to create timelines for Speakers to decide a matter be it Assembly or Parliament. If required we will look at need for amending the act so that Speakers can't go by their own whims and fancies."
