Naidu’s offer on Dy CMs smells of his party’s defeat

Hyderabad, May 5, 2014: Mocking at
TDP president Chandrababu Naidu’s offer to appoint two deputy CMs from BC and
Kapu communities, YSR Congress party has asserted today that Naidu has made the
jittery offer aiming at their votes as he is haunted by the fear of defeat in
the elections.

YSR Congress spokesperson Vasireddy Padma told reporters here that Naidu’s
offer on Deputy CM post, which has no constitutional sanctity, is akin to the
CM aspirant-character in Dasari Narayana Rao’s satirical movie ‘MLA Edukondalu’
who offers Chief Deputy CM post for a rival MLA to defect to his side to
facilitate his becoming CM.

Naidu’s gimmickry of using the Deputy CM card for votes and seats will not
curry favour with the Kapus and BCs who are solidly backing YSR Congress party,
she said. “If you are so sincere about the offer, why didn’t you give proper
representation to BCs and Kapus in the allotment of tickets first of all,” she
asked him, adding that the two communities will not fall prey to Naidu’s fake

Padma said Naidu has offered CM post to BCs in Telangana where TDP is going to
be defeated and Deputy CM posts for BCs and Kapus in Seemandhra where his
party’s count will not reach even a double digit.

Taking umbrage of remarks by TDP-backed BC leaders that YSRCP president Jagan
Mohan Reddy has had no administrative experience, Padma retorted saying that
leaders like Jayalalita, Naveen Patnayak and NTR also had no experience before
they became CMs.

“Even BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Modi also had no experience before
becoming the CM. Jagan Mohan Reddy has had the experience of taking on bigwigs
like Sonia and others,” she said.

Stating that actor Pawan Kalyan has been shedding crocodile tears over the way
division has taken place and blaming Jagan Mohan Reddy for the bifurcation,
Padma reminded him that state division took place with the full backing of TDP,
BJP and his brother and Uniion Minister Chiranjeevi.

“Where were you when Chiranjeevi gave letter in favour of Telangana at the all
party meeting conducted by the then CM Rosaiah on Dec 7, 2009?” she asked him.

Padma also strongly condemned the actor’s statement that Jagan Mohan Reddy will
ensure elimination of political rivals if he comes to power and said it was
Chandrababu Naidu who had stained his hands with blood. 

Vangaveeti Mohan Ranga, Pingali Dasaradha Ram and several others were
eliminated during the TDP rule, she said, stating it is ridiculous that the
actor is making baseless allegations like a mad cap standing beside a person
whose history is questionable and murky.

Terming as false the arguments of TDP leaders and their captive media that it
was Naidu who developed the state, she said Naidu failed to fill the revenue
deficit of Rs.20,000 Cr during his regime.

“It was Naidu who ensured that the worth of the Government’s properties went
down to 43 per cent during his regime while YSR took it to 120 per cent after
taking over as CM,” she said.

Padma warned that after coming to power, YSRCP Government will order a probe
into distribution of money and liquor by TDP to buy votes. “We will probe from
where you are getting the money and who is financing you?”
