Visakhapatnam, Sept 15 (INN): Pooh-poohing N Chandrababu Naidu’s Delhi tour with TDP leaders of both the regions, YSCP has said, the opposition leader’s claim that he is bound to national capital to solve the political imbroglio in the State is ridiculous as he is leading the contingent as a show of strength before the Congress high command to curry personal favours.
“There is no difference between PRP which has merged with Congress and the TDP that has been extending total support to the Congress. The parading of TDP leaders in Delhi is for a hard bargain in his favour with the show of strength but the trip has nothing to do with clearing the uncertainty in the State,” Sharmila said while addressing a public meeting here on Sunday during the Samaikhya Shankaravam.
The uncertainty and imbroglio on the division has sprouted from the letter Naidu has given to Centre expressing no objection to bifurcating the State and now Naidu leading a delegation to Delhi with all his leaders in tow clearly indicates that he is on mission to play foul with YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, who has just moved the bail petition.
The TDP leader is using the contingent of his elected leaders as a commodity to trade with Congress high command and continue the conspiracy to keep YS Jagan Mohan Reddy away from the people,” she said.
The padayatras, bus yatra and Delhi yatras of Naidu will not yield any results as the YSRCP is with the people and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is the undisputed leader who will steer the Party to victory in the next elections, she said.
Going to Delhi with leaders of both regions could be only a farce as Chandrababu Naidu has already given the letter agreeing for the bifurcation of the State. Unless he withdraws the letter and announces his support to the united state, his stand continuous to be dubious like his deeds and deals.
He had earlier said that the two regions are like two eyes and his double standards and double speak had come into the open by taking up Bus Yatra in Seemandhra even after giving a letter agreeing to the bifurcation of the State.
TDP, TRS, Congress, BJP and CPI are in favour of a separate state while YSRCP, MIM and CPI (M) are against the division. When the deck is so clear, Naidu leading a delegation of his party leaders belonging to both the regions looks absurd, she said.
YSRCP on its part has clarity on the stand and the MLAs had quit ahead of the CWC decision to split the state while the Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Honorary President YS Vijayamma have undertaken fast for the cause of a united state besides writing letters to the Centre.
Chandrababu Naidu has a clumsy vision and has dubious and double standards on the issue. He should quit along with his elected representatives and withdraw the letter he has given to the Centre for the cause of a united state or announce that he is for a separate state–he cannot be both, she said.
Congress and TDP leaders are still hanging on to their posts as their priorities are to be in office at any cost and people’s sentiments come next. Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy knew of the division in advance but was silent and if all Seemandhra leaders cutting across party lines had quit immediately after Digvijay Singh had announced the decision to divide the state, the situation would have been very different.
Water sharing and capital development are the most contentious issues and without addressing them, the Centre cannot divide the State against the wishes of the majority of the people.
YSRCP demands that the state should be united and the Centre has no right to divide the State if it cannot solve the issues arising out of the bifurcation, she said.
