Naidu should join Feb 17 protest: YSRCP

Feb 15, 2014: YSR Congress has said that the bandh in protest against the manner in
which the division Bill was rushed in to Parliament was total and success and
appealed to all parties and democratic forces that believe in democracy to take
part in the February 17 dharna to be held in New Delhi.

bandh in the state is total and a success. People were very emotional as gross
injustice is being done to the State with 75 % of the people opposing the Bill.
Barring a few stray incidents the bandh was peaceful and total,” party
spokesperson Vasireddy Padma told reporters here on Friday.

dharna at Jantar Mantar on Monday would be the battle between Delhi arrogance
and Telugu self pride and latter will be the eventual winner. “This is the
right time for all the democratic forces to join hands and fight out the
divisive politics of Congress and the dharna should echo in the Parliament and
force the Congress biggies and Sonia Gandhi to change their minds,” she said.

also appealed to TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu to join the protest and be
categorical in his stand. He should also issue a whip and ask his leaders to be
united and take a single stand in the Parliament.

national and regional parties have expressed solidarity with our Party and our
leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has been persistently raising his voice for a
united state and has been working hard to mobilise public opinion in favour of
a united state, she said.

trains will leave for Delhi on Saturday (February 15), one from Renugunta
covering the cadre, sympathisers and leaders of Nellore, Chittoor, YSR Kadapa,
Ananthapur, Kurnool, Mahbubnagar,  Medak, Nalgonda, Ranaga Reddy and Hyderabad

from Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East and West Godavari, Krishna,
Guntur, Prakasam, Khammam, Karimnagar and Adilabad districts, she said.

timing of the dharna is appropriate and is not in the last minute reaction. The
