Convene Assembly, reiterates Jagan

Hyderabad, October 17, 2013: Reiterating the demand to convene a special
session of assembly to pass a resolution against the division of the State, YSR
Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that Chief Minister N Kiran
Kumar Reddy and Leader of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu should also join the
struggle for a united state failing which they remain traitors in the State

“We have met the Governor with the demand to convene the assembly before
the draft Bill on the separate state comes up and our party MLAs and leaders
will picket the Chief Minister’s office with the same demand tomorrow.

The Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition should join the fight for
the united state and convene the assembly to pass a resolution in favour of an
integrated state or else they will earn a place of traitors in the history of
the state politics,” he told reporters here on Thursday.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been pulling the strings and Kiran
Kumar Reddy and Chadnrababu Naidu are dancing to Delhi tunes. Unless they come
to grips with the reality and honour the mood of the people, they will remain
as characterless people, he said.

The Congress President has been slithering the future of our children
with the motive of seeing her son Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister and the state
leaders are religiously following her dictates without any concern towards the
future of the people back home, he said.

Attacking Chief Minister and Naidu for acting as agents of Sonia Gandhi,
he said Kiran Kumar Reddy has been trying to water down the Seemandhra movement
with the divide-and-rule policy by calling union leaders one-by-one and
attempting to break the strike. Chandrababu Naidu on the other hand had
undertaken fast in Delhi seeking a separate state and in the name of protest,
we do not know whom all did he meet and for what purpose.

Commenting on Digvijay Singh’s statement that the Samaikhyandhra movement
is slowing down, he said: the AICC General Secretary and the Chief Minister are
following the instructions of Congress President in letter and spirit but the
ground reality is otherwise.   

We had earlier urged the Governor and wrote to Chief Minister to convene
the assembly before the cabinet note is prepared but there was no positive
response while Delhi has been active in the division process and it is time
that other parties, more so TDP, join YSRCP, MIM and CPI (M) in opposing the
division of the State.

Cabinet ministers have changed their tune and have shifted from the
united state slogan to package model which shows that they have compromised. We
are serious on quitting the Lok Sabha and our leaders Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy
and SPY Reddy will leave for Delhi to mount pressure on Speaker to accept the

If the State is divided, the entire region from Kuppam to Srikakulam
will turn into a desert, he said and every youth who will be deprived of a
chance to secure a job in Hyderabad will curse Naidu and Kiran Kumar Reddy if
they do not fight for the cause of Samaikhyandhra.

Samaikhya Shankaravam on Oct 26: The permission to hold Samaikhya Shankaravam
meeting in the city was accorded and it will be held on October 26.

Affirming that he will lead the Samaikhyandhra movement from the
forefront, he appealed to all leaders, cutting across party affiliations, who
want to keep the state united to join the meeting. I also appeal to N Kiran
Kumar Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu also to extend support to the meeting.

“When I say Samaikhyandhra, I mean all the three regions of Telangana,
Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema,” he said.

Replying to a question on the alleged deal with Congress, Jagan told
sarcastically: “Who was in jail for 16 months and who helped the Centre in
getting the FDI Bill passed. Who was working to keep the state united and who
has issued a whip to save the Congress government when the no confidence motion
was moved?

I have been fair and was always adopting policies for the benefit of
common man while TDP leader was on a Save Congress mission all along.
