Guntur, Aug 19, 2013: Asking
the Congress leadership and the Centre to keep quiet leaving the state united
and untouched if it cannot do equal justice to all regions, YSR Congress
honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma on Monday launched her indefinite fast
in Guntur.

Addressing the sea of
humanity that witnessed the launching of her indefinite fast at the sprawling
old bus stand area, Smt. Vijayamma asked the people not to dishonour or attack the
visiting Telangana leaders but carry out the agitation peacefully.

She squarely accused
the Congress of dividing the Andhra Pradesh state for just seats and votes. “The
Congress wants to do justice to one area in the state for gaining political
mileage and seats while rendering injustice to the other area,” she said.

Heart burnt Seema
Andhra is boiling with agitation after the Congress announced its unilateral
and autocratic decision of dividing the state without thinking of solutions to
the issues of employment, sharing of river waters, funds and natural resources,
she said, expressing her agony over the present disturbed situation in the

Revealing that she has
been taking up the indefinite fast on behalf of YSR Congress party chief Sri
Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, she said the Congress leadership took the division
decision aided by the blank cheque given by the TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu in
support of Telangana formation.

“Jagan Mohan Reddy
wanted to launch the Deeksha opposing the Congress decision but due to jail
manual it is not possible. Hence my decision to launch the Deeksha on his
behalf opposing the Congress autocratic decision,” she said.

Smt. Vijayamma said
that YSR loved all regions of the state equally and took steps for the equal
development of all the areas without any preconceived notions or prejudices.
YSR ensured that fruits of welfare schemes and programmes had reached all
sections people and in all regions.

Observing that from the
very beginning, YSR Congress party has been asking the Congress and the Centre
to solve the issue of Telangana by coming out with a solution acceptable to all
and discuss the same with all stake holders concerned before taking a final

“We said this in the all-party
meet in Delhi last year but the Congress party went ahead with its dictatorial
approach on the issue. This was the reason for our MLAs quitting. Later, I also
quit along with Jagan Mohan Reddy 
protesting the Congress dictatorial approach,” she said adding Congress
leadership took the unilateral decision on Telangana only because of the letter
written by Chandrababu Naidu in favour of Telangana.

She said besides sharing
of river waters, natural resources and funds, there are several other issues such as
the status of Hyderabad city and the issue of public sector undertakings. “ Most of the state revenue comes from Hyderabad  city and  the issue of sharing the revenue has not been taken up. All
Government public sector undertakings are situated in and around Hyderabad and
several other hundreds of ancillary industries also came up there. What about them? How will they be distributed?’ she asked, making it clear to the Centre and the Congress to take up
division only after solving the issues first.
