Clarity, assurance needed on voting: YSRCP

Hyderabad, Jan 15, 2014: Describing the situation in the assembly as chaotic with no clarity on whether
or not there will be voting on the clauses to the State Reorganisation Bill,
YSR Congress has said why the Chief Minister, Leader of Opposition and PCC
President did not give any amendments to the draft Bill.

“Our Party has a clear
stand that we are for a untied state and will participate in voting, if there
is one, but no one is in a position to tell about the proceedings of the
legislature and why N Kiran Kumar Reddy who has been boasting of being champion
of Samaikyandhra cause and Chandrababu Naidu along with Botsa Satyanrayana did
not move any amendments to the draft Bill,” party spokesperson Jupudi Prabhakar
told reporters here on Wednesday.

Instead of openly telling
their stand on the draft Bill, they have been targeting YSR Congress and have
been leveling allegations that we are not interested in the debate. We have given
amendments to all the clauses while Chief Minister, TDP President and PCC chief
did not give even a single suggestion.

When the division itself is
an arrogant move of the Delhi to belittle Telugu people, we find no point in
taking part in the debate, but we will participate in voting as and when it
takes place, he said. We have in place the strategy to be adopted in the next
phase of assembly session beginning on January 17 and we firmly believe that
the Bill is against the federal spirit.

Our leader YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy has travelled across the country from West Bengal to Maharashtra and from
Tamil Nadu to Punjab to Tamil Nadu seeking the support of leaders of national
and regional parties while the local Congress and TDP leaders are yet to state
their stand and are found wanting when it matters most as Kiran Kumar Reddy,
Botsa Satyanarayana and N Chandrababu Naidu are hardly seen in the Assembly, he

They do not express their
views, though they need to have a view on such an important issue, and do not
play an active role in the assembly which amounts to deceiving the people as
they are not reflecting the feelings of the majority of the populace of the

They even do not attend the
BAC meeting where the assembly proceedings are broadly drafted. Kiran Kumar
Reddy who has given a power-point presentation and Naidu who has been
encouraging his party cadre to speak out according to their respective regional
affiliations are making a mockery of parliamentary democracy, he said.

Chandrababu Naidu, who is
gazing from both sides of the fence, has been paranoid and fears YSRCP to the
extent that even when he was on a holiday to spend some time at his home town
to meet his old friends and teachers, he was speaking against YSR and YS Jagan
Mohan Reddy.

The TDP leader should
remember that his own uncle has earlier said that one should emulate YSR for
governance as farmers are happy in his term.

The confusion of TDP leader
sends wrong signals and if he is unable to lead the Party with a uniform policy
and keep his flock together, it is time for him to call it a day and keep away
from public life, he said.
