CM, Naidu lost relevance: YSRCP

Hyderabad,
August 8, 2013: Coming down heavily on Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Leader
of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu for slipping into hibernation when political
tremors of a great magnitude are running amok in the state, YSR Congress has
said such indecision will prove costly to the two parties at the hustings.

“While
Congress has unilaterally taken the decision to split the state, the TDP
President has been maintaining a low profile as he has compromised with the
Centre on various issues to save his skin. Keeping personal interests ahead of
the people’s interests the two parties are responsible for the turmoil in the
state,” party Deputy Floor Leader Bhuma Sobha Nagi Reddy told reporters here on
Tuesday.

While
Seemandhra is burning with students, employees and other sections of the people
taking to streets and agitating against the injustice being meted out by the
unilateral decision of Centre, Delhi has appointed a high-power committee
heading AK Antony to resolve the crisis.

“This
is again the streak arrogance of the Congress Party. Can two persons decide the
future and fortunes of nine-crore people? This is not an internal issue of
Congress Party. The issue concerns people of the state. All stake holders
should have been consulted before taking the decision. That was our Party stand
which was not heeded to by the Centre.

When
that was not done and Congress leaders fail to question the leadership and
people will teach them a fitting lesson in the next elections. Union Minister
Pallam Raju expressing shock that the Government did not expect such a wild
reaction is nothing but his lack of grasp of the sentiment of the people of
Seemandhra, she said.

TDP
MPs have been enacting resignation drama after their leader was caught napping
on the issue and leaders of the two Parties are now trying to hijack the
movement by throwing hat in the ring but people will not believe them as their
true colours are exposed.

The
future looks uncertain and the situation is slipping out of hands for Congress
and TDP as YS Jagan Mohan Reddy along with his Party is getting good response
and YSR sentiment is sweeping across the state. They wanted to eke out
political mileage by the bifurcation but the logistics were not worked out
properly, she said.

Slamming
Telangana ministers for time and again giving assurances about the safety of
Seemandhra people, she said “we are not at the mercy of anyone. We have equal
rights on the state capital and we can fight it out.”

Digvijay
Singh statement that we will develop a capital in Seemandhra cannot be relied
on as we have seen the development that took place in the three new states
carved out in the recent past.Congress has to pay the price and TDP has lost
its relevance in the state political affairs, she said.

On
Harish Rao’s statement criticising Sharmila remarks, she said, “It was KCR who
was giving provocative statements and Sharmila had only replied to the TRS
leader in a matching tone.”

KCR’s
statement has created insecurity among the people of seemandhra living in the
state capital and Sharmila was only replying to his provocative speeches in a
fitting manner.

On
Union Minister Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy’s statement seeking the division of
Rayalaseema, she said, it is not fair and a demand should be put forth for the
development of the entire region.
