Queensland Labor party members will move to censure backbencher Jo-Ann Miller over comments that compared her own government to that of the Bjelke-Petersen era.
Pressure is mounting on Queensland MP Jo-Ann Miller to resign as rank and file party members take action to condemn the rogue backbencher.
Rockhampton's Park Avenue Branch has called a special meeting for Friday to move a motion to censure Ms Miller for comparing her government to that of the notorious Bjelke-Petersen era.
In a speech in state parliament on Tuesday night, Ms Miller accused cabinet ministers including Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk of ignored corruption allegations relating to former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale.
Branch president Barry Thompson said members were outraged by Ms Miller's comments.
"I have not heard one of our branch members condone her attack and they all see her actions as self-serving and an attempt to hold a gun at the head of a Labor government," he said.
Mr Thompson said members would also be asked to support a plan to encourage other branches to take similar action against Ms Miller.
"At rare times like this when one lone, rogue member seeks to undermine a Labor government, our branch will always stand up and be counted," he said.
Former Labor ministers are among the growing chorus of voices who think Ms Miller should resign from the Labor party over the comparisons to the Bjelke-Petersen government, which oversaw rampant police corruption.
Robert Schwarten, who is a member of the Park Avenue Branch, urged rank and file members to revolt against the backbencher by emailing the party office, and by calling for her to withdraw her nomination for the seat.
"She's not doing this for any other reason other than self-interest and she needs to be called out," he told AAP on Thursday.
Former speaker John Mickel said it was time for Ms Miller to work out whether she wanted to belong to the Labor team "or move on".
And Tony McGrady, a speaker and minister in the Beattie government, said it was up to the party to decide if she should resign, but described her comments as "disgraceful".
"To get somebody who has had the support of the Labor movement, to compare Annastacia Palaszczuk and her government with the John Bjelke-Petersen years, to me, must be sick," he told AAP on Thursday.
Ms Miller told AAP she had no further comment to make about her allegations.
