CM should answer if 26 GOs are in order

May 21, 2013: YSR Congress has demanded the Chief Minister N KiranKumar Reddy to
spell out the government stand on the 26 GOs and be categorical if they were
issued as per the business rules or if there was any deviation.

“Dharmana Prasada Rao said
that the GOs were issued on merit and according to the government policy and YS
Rajasekhar Reddy did not influence any one of them in issuing the GOs. In such
a case why were the two ministers dropped, more so when TDP leader N
Chandrababu Naidu went vociferous on the demand,” party Deputy Leader Sobha
Nagi Reddy told reporters here on Tuesday.

Going by the developments it
seems that TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu is dictating terms to the Congress

“On one hand the government
files an affidavit stating that the 26 GOs are in order yet action is initiated
against two ministers after Naidu goes to

seeking the removal of the ministers. This only establishes that the Kiran
Kumar Reddy government is heavily dependent on TDP and it will comply with whatever
Naidu tells, she said.

“When the two ministers had
put in their papers long back, the State government initiating action after
Naidu makes a demand in Delhi gives a picture of who is dictating whom and
why,” she said. 

When Naidu faced similar
allegations, he said that the decision of issuing the GO was taken by an
elected government and cannot be questioned. He has also issued orders for IMG
Bharatha while he was care-taker government at a throw away price.

Yet he advocates that the
ministers should be sacked and the Chief Minister meekly obliges.

The resignation of Dharmana
Prasada Rao was initially not accepted and the cabinet took a decision not to
allow any prosecution and the state agreed to bear the legal expenses as well.
Suddenly the Kiran Kumar Reddy government takes the papers of the two ministers
in a huff while Naidu makes it an issue with the Governor and the President.

“Whether the state wants to give
the credit of the ministers’ ouster to Naidu or if the TDP leader has dictated
the path with an assurance that the Kiran Kumar Reddy government will not be
toppled, the State took the decision as if to appease Naidu, “she said.

This only shows that the two
parties are in clear understanding and want to jointly fight the common
adversary YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

If Naidu was so stern about it
he did not raise the issue earlier and even did not extend support to the no
confidence motion moved by us. While he was hitting out hard on the State
Government during his padayatra, he did not extend support to the no trust vote
moved by smaller other opposition parties. Naidu even issued a whip not to vote
in favour of the motion.

This shows that he is on a
Save Congress mission. The Chief Minister should answer as to why the
resignations were taken when the government has argued that the GOs were in

She also lashed out the TDP
leaders who were saying that YSRCP lacks leadership. Senior leaders form TDP
coming out of the party is an indication of the strength and credibility of
Naidu, she said.
