Disqualification cowardly act: YSRCP

, June 8, 2013: Describing as a cowardly
act the disqualification of rebel MLAs after the deadline for by-elections has
lapsed YSR Congress has said both Congress and TDP fear that they would draw a
blank if elections are held at this juncture.

“Though the MLAs had defied
the whip much earlier, the Government has dragged the issue and announced the
decision only after the Assembly term has completed four years so that no
by-elections would be held if the term of the House is less than one year. This
is nothing but a cowardly act,” Party CEC Member Uppuleti Kalpana told
reporters here on Saturday. 

The MLAs who voted in favour of YSR-sponsored no-confidence motion have
categorically told the Speaker that they have defied the whip and asked him to
disqualify them immediately but the process was dragged only to avoid
by-elections which would spell doom to the ruling Congress and opposition TDP,
she said.

Had the Speaker taken action immediately, YSRCP would have swept the
polls and the previous experience has been haunting the two parties, she said.

Coming down heavily on TDP, she said, the opposition party in on a Save
Congress mission. It moved the first no confidence motion only after PRP merged
with Congress and arithmetic worked clearly that there is no threat to the
existence of the Government.

When YSRCP and other opposition parties have moved the no confidence
motion, TDP has issued a whip asking the MLAs not the join the other opposition
parties. This shows that the two parties are working in perfect understanding.

Taking strong objection to Varla Ramaiah’s remarks on YS Bharathi, she
said such comments are uncalled for and are far from truth. Even a section of
media has projected that YS Bharathi had a scuffle with a cop while in reality
she was telling the policeman to allow her father inside.

The distorted version was picked up by TDP leaders without verifying
facts, she said. The padayatra of Naidu has evoked no response and on the
contrary while he was on padayatra leader after leader had left the Party which
shows that he lost grip over the party and the cadre has no faith in his
leadership. While YSR family is known for a pat on the back, Chandrababu Naidu
is notorious for back stabbing tactics.
