Naidu on 'Save Cong Misson': YSRC

Hyderabad, Sept
24, 2012 :
Expressing dissatisfaction over the conduct of the five-day
Assembly session, YSRCP Deputy floor leader Sobha Nagi Reddy has said that the
Monsoon Session goes down in to the history as the most unproductive and
lackluster one with the treasury and opposition benches scripting the
proceedings in advance.


“We have given adjournment motion on all important issues from
fees reimbursement to power shortage, hike in diesel prices besides pressing
matters of public interest, but the Government has just put aside all our
demands and waded through the five days without taking up a single discussion,”
Sobah Nagi Reddy along with M Sucharitaha and D Krishna Das told reporters here
on Saturday.

The seriousness or the lack of it, on part of the ruling and
main opposition parties was proved during the BAC meeting, which was skipped by
Chief Minister, N Kiran Kumar Reddy and TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu, she

“Our Party President YS Vijaymma and some other Parties have
told the BAC that the session should be held for at least 15 days but it was
confined to only 5 days which passed off with only the homage to Konda Lakshman
Bapuji being the singular participatory event,” she said adding that ever since
the death of YS Rajasekhar Reddy Assembly session has lost its relevance and
people’s issues are never taken up for discussion.

The real opportunity to raise the failures of the State
Government in containing the prices was just wasted away as we wanted to use
the floor of the House to discuss the serious power shortage and the lack of commitment
and foresight on the State and why it is not giving subsidies to cushion the
hike in diesel prices as some of the neighbouring States are doing.

“We also wanted to question the State to pass on its additional
income (VAT) on the hike in diesel running to Rs 900 crores to the consumers as
YSR has done by mitigating the hike with subsidies. Adequate measures were not
taken to help the farmers of the state that has received erratic rainfall
affecting crops in one region and the other reeling under drought,” she said.

Leader of Opposition N Chanrababu Naidu had failed to play his
designated role and is on a “Save Congress” mission. During the dharna against
diesel price hike at Delhi he shared the dais with Samajwadi Party leader
Mulayam Singh Yadav to protest against the UPA decision.

However, the two leaders in unison were in favour of Congress
with Mulayam continuing his support and Chandrababu Naidu being very vocal in
saying that there is no threat of a mid-term poll, she said adding that the TDP
President has secret meetings with the Prime Minister and Union Minister P
Chidambaram in Delhi which confirms his “Save Congress” mission.

When asked about Telangana, she said: “we have made our stand
very clear on umpteen occasions. It is for the Congress take initiative on the
