Srisailam Slams YSRCP on Telangana Stand
Hyderabad, Sept 13 (INN): Qutubullapur MLA K Srisailam Goud on Friday slammed the YSR Congress party for reversing its stand on the Telangana issue.
Talking to reporters after rejoining the Congress party at Gandhi Bhavan here, Srisailam said that he had joined the YSRCP to fulfill the dreams of former Chief Minister Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy. However, he said that the YSRCP reversed its stand on Telangana while humuliating the sentiments of people of the region.
Srisailam claimed that YSR had supported the Telangana movement in view of the backwardness of the region. It was during YSR’s regime that the statehood movement reached its peak. However, he alleged that Vijayamma and Jagan Mohan Reddy betrayed the people of Telangana and therefore, he decided to quit the YSRCP to rejoin the Congress.
