Adopt united state resolution: YSRCP

Dec 13, 2013: Demanding the Congress Government to adopt a resolution against
the State bifurcation in the Assembly, YSR Congress has said that a special
session should be convened to discuss the draft Bill.

“We demand that a special assembly session should
be convened to discuss the draft Bill sent by the Centre on the division of the
State, but before that the House should take up the resolution on keeping the
State united and adopt it,” party senior leader Konatala Ramakrishna told
reporters here on Friday.

Our Party honorary President YS Vijayamma has given
notice for the resolution and it should be taken up immediately for discussion
and the draft Bill which has many figures and clauses needs to be studied in
detail which is time-consuming. Hence it should be taken up in a special
session, he said.

Congress leader Digvijay Singh has been telling
that TRS will merge with Congress after the Bill is passed which shows that the
State is being divided for political reasons and not according to the will of
the people. “To know the wish of the people the assembly should first move a
resolution against the division in the ongoing session, have a discussion and
adopt the resolution.”

Chief Minister and Chandrababu Naidu have been
helping the Congress in expediting the division process. Kiran Kumar Reddy has
kept everyone in the dark about his real intentions but his deeds have always
been in favour of the division and to please the high command. The Leader of
Opposition too has been sailing in the same boat.

“Today Naidu is speaking in a higher pitch, but he
did not take back the letter he has given accepting the bifurcation, he 
did not depose before the GoM and tell them that there is no equal justice in
the division.

What he is speaking is only for public consumption
as he has whole heartedly extended his support to Congress high command to
evade the arrest in the numerous corruption charges against him,’ Ramakrishna

The talk of Kiran Kumar Reddy floating a new party
is doing the rounds. Only those who help Congress and secretly desire to split
the State will be going for a new party. Digvijay Singh who has come to town as
an emissary has his own agenda of rushing through the Bill.

Digvijay Singh saying that Congress will not go
back on its word and YSRCP has been taken a U-turn is total falsehood. Congress
cannot disown former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi speaking of integrated State
Andhra Pradesh

He should know about the earlier resolution of CWC
that a second SRC should be constituted. Though the first SRC has agreed for
bifurcating Vidarbha, the Centre takes no steps in that direction. Uttar
Pradesh government has passed an assembly resolution to split the state into
four, but the Centre makes no move in that direction.

In 2004 before elections, Congress has said that it
would decide on Telangana issue after arriving at a consensus and in 2009 it
has appointed K Rosaiah Committee to discuss the pros and cons of the division
and has included nine issues as terms of reference.

Then came the Sri Krishna Committee Report. The
Centre has pushed all these documents aside and is going at a high speed to
split the State for political gains, without taking the assembly into
consideration and without bothering about the sentiments of the local people.

YSR Congress has been opposing the division from
the beginning and will continue to do so. Digvijay Singh saying that our Party
has agreed to the division is wrong. When P Chidambaram has announced about the
State formation on December 9, 2009 YSR Congress was not existent.

Digvijay Singh who has seen the division of Madhya
Pradesh, should also follow the same procedure of taking assembly into
confidence or else Congress will be whipped out as in his own State, he said.

The division is undemocratic and very authoritarian
in nature. Andhra Pradesh that has given good number of MPs to the Centre is
being split for political reasons without considering the long term consequences.
Digvijay Singh reiterating that TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu is his friend is
evident from the way Naidu has been helping Congress on various counts.
