Mockery of democracy by Cong, TDP

Hyderabad, Dec 16, 2013: Asserting that both
Congress and TDP had made a mockery of democracy by tabling the draft Bill in
the Assembly without taking up the issue in the BAC and without giving notice
on it, YSR Congress has said, the true colours of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar
Reddy and TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu have come in full glare of the nation.

“Kiran Kumar Reddy, who claims to be the champion
of Seemandhra cause, had ditched them badly by abstaining from the House and
allowing his deputy to move the Bill while the TDP leader flipped on either
side with his party members displaying contrasting placards, “ Party MLA
Bhumana Karunakar Reddy told reporters here on Monday.

We have been time and again vociferously demanded
the Chief Minister to convene the Assembly and pass a resolution against the
division of the State but Kiran Kumar Reddy stood loyal to the

acceptable, he said.

“We are for a united State and had the Government
conceded to our demand of adopting a resolution against the division, the
country would have known about the injustice being meted out to Seemandhra
region. But the government has deliberately missed out the golden


opportunity as Kiran Kumar Reddy was helping the
Centre to expedite the division process though he has been posing as an

Chandrababu Naidu has been reduced to a joker in
the pack as his own MLAs have been raising two contrasting slogans. It is now
in the open that Kiran Kumar Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu are for division of
the State and not integrationists.

“We also condemn the highhandedness of police
against the Seemandhra employees of Secretariat who were in their own right
protesting against the tabling of the Bill.

It is the Kiran Kumar Reddy
government that has misused its police force to throttle the voice of
Seemandhra employees and we condemn this act vehemently, he added
