AP must stay united, no other go: Sharmila

Tirupati, Sept 3, 2013:
Launching a blistering attack on the Congress for its unjustified and
unilateral decision to bifurcate the state, Smt. Y. S. Sharmila asked the
Centre to keep Andhra Pradesh united as it had failed to render equal justice
to all regions of the state on the T issue.

Kicking off her
Samaikya Sankharavam Bus Yatra at the sprawling Leela Mahal Centre here Monday evening,
she addressed a sea of humanity that turned up to witnesses the launching. She said the Congress was enjoying the tamasha after igniting the division
fire in the state with the blank cheque support given by the TDP chief
Chandrababu Naidu.

Making it clear that
she was blowing the bugle of Samaikya Sankharavam on behalf of YSR Congress
Party Chief Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, she said the Congress has no right to
take unilateral decision on the issue.

Calling the Congress
autocratic decision on bifurcation as backstabbing of the Telugu people, Smt.
Sharmila said 6 crore people of Seemandhra are opposing the bifurcation of the
state. She asserted that YSRCP, CPM and MIM always opposed the decision to
bifurcate the state.

Smt. Sharmila had
accused Chandrababu of maintaining stoic silence to the threats served by the
TRS leaders and to the destruction of the Seemandhra leaders’ statues on Tank
Bund. “What right have you got to tour Seemandhra area after demanding 4 lakh
crores of rupees to build a separate Capital city?” she questioned Naidu.

Asking the Centre and
the Congress party not to go ahead with the bifurcation decision as there was
no unanimity among the people, she said Hyderabad city has been built over a
period of 60 years by all people?

“How can anyone say
that Seema Andhra people should leave the city?” How can we build a similar
capital city in 10 years? First of all, how can you go ahead with bifurcation
without solving the issues of sharing of river waters and power and the revenue
accruing from Hyderabad besides its status?” she posed, clearly asking the
Centre not to go ahead with the bifurcation decision. 

Party honourary president Smt. Vijayamma also spoke and asked the Centre to keep Andhra Pradesh united as majority people opposed the bifurcation.
