Hyderabad, Sept 26 (INN): YSR Congress has demanded the government to immediately convene the Assembly and table the resolution seeking a united State.
“Our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has sought the appointment of Governor ESL Narasimhan to apprise him of the Party stand and the need to convene the Assembly and move the resolution to keep the state united which will bring to the fore the stand of all political parties,” party deputy floor leader B Shobha Nagi Reddy told reporters here on Thursday.
We will also write a letter to the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to convene the assembly and all MLAs will meet the Speaker with a similar request. Once the assembly is convened and the resolution on the united State is put to vote, the true colours of the members and political parties will be known.
“Both Congress and TDP are resorting to theatrics by taking divergent stands and speaking in diametrically contrasting tones in different regions. The floor of the House is the apt platform to speak out on the Party stand and we demand that the assembly should be immediately convened,” she said after a meeting chaired by Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy with MLAs and other leaders held at his Lotus Pond residence earlier in the day.
Chief Minister asking his cabinet colleagues to refrain from resigning shows his helplessness as the State division process in Delhi is continuing without any hindrance. Seemandhra leaders on the other hand are trying to mislead the people by raising false hopes.
Had the Chief Minister and Seemandhra leaders resigned immediately after the CWC decision of splitting the state was announced, the situation would not have come to such a pass, she said.
Instead of waiting till the cabinet note on separate state is sent, we contend that it would be prudent to convene the Assembly pass a resolution in favour of a United Andhra Pradesh.
Holding Congress and TDP responsible for the division of the state, she said, TDP which gave a letter accepting the division of the State is now speaking in a different voice and all doubts and apprehensions will be cleared if the Assembly is convened and the resolution is put to vote, she said.
Such a sordid state of affairs descended on Andhra Pradesh as there is no efficient leader at the helm of affairs. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will be steering the United State movement and will be the voice of crores of people who want the state to be united.
The assembly session will also show to the world, who stands where and what their stand is. Congress leaders are unable to stop the division process in Delhi is going on but are putting up a brave face in general public and this trend has to come to an end.
“Our Party has taken the initiative and the MLAs have resigned and the leadership has undertaken indefinite fasts demanding a united state. Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will be leading the struggle to keep the state united,” she said.
