It's moral victory for us: YSRCP

Hyderabad, March 16, 2013:
Describing the defeat of no trust motion as a moral victory, YSR Congress has
said the government has lost the right to continue in office as it has drifted
into a minority going by the additional members who have defied the party line.

“Two things have become very
clear in the no confidence motion. The Government is in a minority and the main
opposition TDP’s understanding with ruling Congress was proved on the floor of
the House,” party senior leader, Dr MV Mysoora told reporters here on Saturday.

It is for the Governor and the
Congress party to decide whether or not the government should continue and we
could prove the point that the Congress is in a minority and dissent was
expressed from 19 members of both Congress and TDP.

Chandrababu Naidu has created
a history by staying away from the voting which amounts to supporting Congress
indirectly. We have been telling this since long and now it has come in full
view of public glare, he said.

While Chandrababu Naidu has
been speaking in high decibels in his ongoing padayatra that the Kiran Kumar
Reddy government should not continue for a single day, TDP leaders have devoted
more time to target YSRCP than criticising ruling Congress party during the
discussion on no-confidence motion.

While moving the no trust
motion is the privilege of the TDP, it failed to live up to the standards of an
opposition party as it hardly spoke against the Congress party.

Even while TDP members were
reading out points from the CBI charge-sheet, which is sub-judice, the chair
allowed the persons to continue despite YSRCP members raising point of order.

The conduct of the chair
apart, Parliamentary conviction is that the chair should not permit any
criticism against a person who is not in the House or a person who cannot
defend himself. This was also allowed.  There seems to be perfect floor
coordination between the ruling Congress and main opposition TDP in attacking
those parties that have moved the no trust motion.

“We know that we did not have
the numbers and the no trust vote will be defeated but we have shown that the
government has no numbers to continue in office, treasury and main opposition
parties are working in tandem.

A new element that came to the
fore is that 19 members from both sides are not happy with functioning of their
respective parties and have voted with us,” he said.

TDP leaders who were alleging
that the no confidence motion was moved for a trade off should now explain as
to what was the trade-off between Congress and TDP.

We challenge the Congress to
hold MPTC and ZPTC elections before the panchayat elections and the real
strength will be proved there, he said. On MIM not supporting the motion, he
said, TDP is a responsible Opposition party and its stand cannot be ignored.
There cannot be any comparison between the two parties, he said.
