Speaking to
reporters here on Saturday, party spokesman Gattu Ramachandra Rao expressed
surprise that the Telangana Congress leader, who has been with KCR till

agitated for separate Telangana state while Jagan Mohan Reddy vehemently
opposed the division and fought for keeping the state united as it would not be
possible to develop the backward areas if the state is bifurcated. They fought

that YSRCP has nothing to do with KCR press meet, Gattu said there is nothing
new in what he said. “That YSRCP is going to form the Government in Seemandhra
is as powerful a fact as the statement that Sun raises in the east,” he said
and added: “Entire world knows that YSRCP, on a winning streak, will continue
its success story and Jagan Mohan Reddy is going to become the CM.  

Referring to
KCR remarks that the Telangana Government would work in close coordination with
the Seemandhra Government, Gattu said there is no wrong if he wishes to have

strongly condemned Sravan’s remarks that Jagan Mohan Reddy was responsible for
the death of 1500 students in Telangana. Asking him not to spread canards and
throw mud on Jagan Mohan Reddy, Gattu said Congress and its president Sonia
were responsible for the deaths in the state and the distress of the people.  

“There is no
need for us to curry favor with any one or any party. Whoever is the CM in
Telangana, we will put pressure on him to implement YSR welfare schemes. Apart
from that, we will also try to come to power in Telangana on our own in due
course of time,” Gattu averred.
