Jagan calls it black day, gives bandh call

Feb 18, 2014: Protesting against the passage of
Telangana bill by Lok Sabha in a secret and hush-hush manner, YSR Congress
President Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy called for Andhra Pradesh bandh tomorrow to express the
party’s disapproval of the bifurcation that took place in utter
disregard of democratic conventions.  

to media persons in Delhi today after
the Lok Sabha passed the Telangana bill by voice vote in secrecy; Jagan Mohan
Reddy said the passing of the bill is totally unconstitutional. “Even in a
country like Pakistan also this type of democratic violation does not take
place. Congress party president Sonia Gandhi resorted to this act acting
like a dictator,” Jagan Mohan Reddy.  

said Sonia Gandhi stooped to lowest ebbs of passing the bill in a totally
despicable and hush-hush manner. “I wonder whether we are staying in
Indian democracy. In the past, we talked of Hitler as a dictator but now
we have to call Sonia as the dictator,” Jagan said, squarely blaming Sonia,
Chandrababu and BJP for the division.  

leadership has bifurcated the state for political mileage and for votes and
seats, he said, saying that the passing of the T bill by Lok Sabha stood as
witness for the undemocratic act. “They have adopted the bill by suspending
some of my Seemandhra colleagues and clearing the House of other Seemandhra
members. This is unprecedented and condemnable,” he said. 

He called upon the
people to observe bandh tomorrow in full and
express their protest against the bifurcation.
