Cong., TDP MPs conduct questionable

Aug 23, 2013: Castigating Congress and TDP MPs for their theatrics in disrupting the
Parliament proceedings, YSR Congress has said they should instead impress upon
their leadership to review the decision of bifurcating the State or quit their
posts to emphasise the seriousness.

Minister, who has been running around Delhi, should quit immediately to
establish his sincerity as the Congress high command has made the Party stand
clear. TDP MPs as well should mount pressure on N Chandrababu Naidu and ask him
to take back the letter extending support for the bifurcation, YSRCP MLA
Srikanth Reddy told reporters here on Thursday.

of pursuing the issue with their respective leadership, MPs of Congress and TDP
trying to show off resentment in the Parliament tantamount to enacting drama to
gain personal and political mileage. As Congress high Command has taken a
decision to divide the state, the MPs should question Congress President Sonia
Gandhi or quit as they differ with the Party stand.

case of TDP as well, the MPs are resorting to the same tactics. They are trying
to put up a poor show in the Parliament by stalling the proceedings while the
Party leader had in no uncertain terms gave a letter extending unconditional
support to the  bifurcation of the State much earlier.

TDP MPs should be questioning Chandrababu Naidu and mount pressure on him to
withdraw the letter which became instrumental in the division of the State.
Some of the MPs who said they had quit the House had not given the resignation
letter in the prescribed format.

Nandamuri Harikrishna had given it in the required format. Other MPs have only
been trying to gain sympathy and political mileage by announcing that they are
quitting their MP post without putting in the papers according to the
procedure”, he said.

on the other hand has made its stand very clear and has said that the division
should be taken up only after all issues are considered and addressed properly
by meting out equal justice to all regions. We have quit on those grounds and
we stand by the letter.

Congress and TDP MPs are doing is to show off that they are with the people of
Seemandhra, who are expressing their dissent at all the available avenues even
as the leadership has taken a decision which goes against the sentiments of the

dichotomy is not acceptable and people are averse to such a ploy. Either the
leaders should en masse call upon the leadership to revoke the decision or quit
the Party to prove their sincerity. Otherwise the stalling of Parliament
proceedings and display of placards would be read as scrambling for cheap
publicity and putting up a fight which has no significance and sincerity",
he said.
