On the other side, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is serious about these developments and is considering to scrap the Council which will bypass the need of getting the support of the Opposition for the crucial bills. Ministers have publicly threatened the TDP MLCs of the scrapping but they did not backstep.

It will be the prerogative of BJP in the Parliament to take it up and get it passed in the Parliament. Till then, the council will exist,” they say.
