Naidu should Revoke Letter on Division
Ravulapalem (East Godavari), Sept 13 (INN): Demanding the withdrawal of unconditional support TDP has accorded for the division of the State, YSR Congress has said that N Chandrababu Naidu has no reason to visit Delhi unless he changes his stand and comes in support of a united state.
“Three Parties, YSRCP, MIM and CPI (M) have opposed the division of the State and TDP should join this group that is against the bifurcation. TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu along with his MPS, MLAs and MLCs should quit their posts and join the Samaikhyandhra movement,” Sharmila said while addressing a public meeting as part of the Samaikhya Shankaravam here on Friday.
Holding Naidu responsible person for the division of the State, as his letter giving the unconditional support for Telangana has emboldened Congress, Sharmila said, it is time for him to undo the damage by submitting resignations and join the three parties that are favouring a united state.
Unless he withdraws, his letter given to the Centre and he quits his post along with other members of the Party there is no credibility for his Delhi trip. When he is in total agreement with Delhi on the division process where is the need for him to meet the President and Prime Minister on the State affairs, she questioned.
He is known for such antics whenever YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s case come to a conclusive stage, as the past records makes it very clear, she said and demanded that Naidu should make it clear as to why he is going Delhi when he is in total agreement with the CWC decision of splitting the State.
Five Parties have agreed for the division including TDP and the majority of the Telugu people are protesting against the decision in Seemandhra. Without expressing support to Seemandhra and revoking his decision of supporting Telangana, if Naidu is going to Delhi it speaks of a larger game plan. Delhi has earlier said that the TDP leader is in touch with top leaders of Congress.
“We demand that he should announce as to why he is going Delhi and meeting the President and Prime Minister,” she said.
Congress leaders are subservient to Delhi durbar and the chief minister has maintained silence though he was aware of the gross injustice to be meted out to Seemandhra. The state is being divided into two without working out the logistics as Congress has only political reasons under consideration and wanted to see Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister.
Seemandhra will become a desert if the state is divided as water will become a scarce commodity and Krishna river water has to come to the new state after the needs of Maharashtra, Karnataka and the new state are fulfilled.
Capital city is another contentious issue that has to be addressed. TDP leader had the audacity to fix a price of 5 lakh crores to Hyderabad, which was it’s first reaction after Delhi announced the decision to bifurcate the State, but capital issue is not an easy one to resolve, she said.
YSRCP has been in the forefront in taking up public issues and has been with the people while Congress and TDP are after power and put political gains ahead of public interests. They have conspired to keep YS Jagan Mohan Reddy away from the people but the dawn has to break and Jagan will come out to lead the Party and bring in a welfare state, she said.
Earlier, she recalled the regime of YSR where welfare was given top priority. All development activities were carried out without imposing any new taxes or increasing fares or tariffs. After his death, Congress has reversed all his welfare schemes and has been imposing taxes and increasing bus, power, gas and other fares manifold, she said.
