Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court on Friday granted an interim stay on the Union Home Ministry's order cancelling the citizenship of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MLA Ramesh Chennamaneni. He had moved the court on Thursday seeking to set aside the MHA's order and had also sought suspension of related proceedings pending the disposal of his plea.

Justice Challa Kondanda Ram posted the case for further hearing to December 16.

Ramesh was re-elected to the Telangana Assembly from the Vemulawada constituency last year.

The home ministry on Wednesday had issued an order to cancel Ramesh's citizenship for concealing facts pertaining to his visits to India during the 12-month period, immediately preceding his application seeking citizenship.

In its order, the ministry said the competent authority has considered various aspects such as his MLA post and his background. He has not been involved in any activity relating to terrorism, espionage, serious organised crime or war crime, it said.

"His misrepresentation/concealment of facts misled the government of India in making its decision initially. Had he revealed the fact that he had not resided in India for one year before making the application, the competent authority in this ministry would not have granted citizenship to him," the order said.

Y Ramarao, advocate for Ramesh argued that citizenship deprivation comes only when the person's behaviour "is not conducive to the public good."

Reacting to the court's order, Ramesh said he was happy with the outcome.
