Naidu, KCR should coordinate on core issues

Aug 4 ,2014: YSR Congress has said that the lack of coordination between the two
Chief Ministers has a very negative impact on the people, more so on the
populace of the Seemandhra as Chandrababu Naidu has failed in the taking up the
core issues with his Telangana counterpart nor has he asked the Centre to
mediate on disputes resulting in the chaos among various sections of people.  

‘Be it fees
reimbursement, implementation of Aarogyasri or sharing of river waters,
Chandrababu Naidu has been very stoic at a time when Telangana government has
raised the nativity issue or when hospitals in the city have been rejecting
patients from Seemandhra which is a blot on his administration,” party
spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Monday.  

Instead of
sitting across the table and sorting out issues, Naidu has allowed the matter
to precipitate in its own course resulting in the intervention of Supreme Court
in EAMCET counselling. We welcome the apex court decision but the question is
why things should go to such a pass.  

As the issue
concerns students, Chief Ministers of both the states should have sorted
amicably face-to-face or at least the Centre should have asked to mediate on
the irksome matters.  

Patients from
Seemandhra are being sent away without treatment on the nativity issue and the
Aarogyasri scheme, they are told, is not applicable to them. As there is no
proper infrastructure and super-speciality hospitals in Seemandhra, patients
have to come to Hyderabad for treatment and if they are denied treatment,
Chandrababu Naidu has to take initiative and hold talks with his counterpart
and find a way out, he said.  

It seems the
plight of students, patients, farmers and other sections of society have
compounded after the bifurcation and neither the Congress nor BJP which were
instrumental in the division nor TDP which has taken claim for casting first
vote in favour of bifurcation has spoken out when it comes to the plight of

The Supreme
Court’s order to conduct counselling as it was done during the united state is
welcome and Naidu should be categorical and speak up on behalf of the
Seemandhra students or bring in the Centre for arbitration.  

Naidu has to be very categorical on the Seemandhra people availing Aarogyasri
scheme as the quality medi-care is
concentrated in Hyderabad itself. He also did not react on water sharing issue,
he said.   

Loan waiver
scheme has never seen light of the day but for the first signature and a GO
being issued as not a single farmer has said that his loan was waived. With a
strength of 67 MLAs we will continue to raise the issue at all forums as Naidu
has been deceiving farmers time and again.  

YSR Congress
has done an introspection of its performance in the elections and brushed aside
the remark that it has no stake in Telangana. We are active both States and
will continue to be, he added.
