Naidu's uncharitable remarks flayed

Hyderabad, Aug 28, 2013: Criticising TDP leaders for their uncharitable
remarks on Party Honorary President YS Vijayamma’s Delhi tour, YSR Congress has
said N Chandrababu Naidu should first spell out his stand clearly before
undertaking any mass contact programme.

“TDP leaders attributing motives to YS Vijayamma’s Delhi visit is
uncalled for and they should first ask their leader to spell out his stand
first before embarking on any Yatra, failing which he will be having no moral
right to step on to the region that is on boil,” Party spokesperson Ambati
Rambabu told reporters here on Wednesday.

Trying to pick holes in the Delhi visit of our Party delegation is
nothing but attempting to gain cheap publicity as our party leaders had met the
President and Prime Minister with a request to do equal justice to both the
regions failing which maintain status quo.

“TDP has been propagating that the trip is meant for ensuring bail to YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy. It is not the President or Prime Minister who grants bail.
The Supreme Court has asked the CBI to expedite the investigation before September 9 after which Jagan Mohan Reddy will be eligible for
bail and law will take its own course and we respect the judiciary,” he said.

The distorted versions of TDP leaders carry no weight as the Party
President himself has no clarity on issue. While he has given the green signal
for division, his MPs and other leaders are exhibiting theatrics in Delhi and

Their remarks that we have an understanding with Congress have no
meaning. In that case why YS Jagan Mohan Reddy should be in jail for over 15
months, he said. They should first ask their leader to make his stand clear on
the bifurcation issue.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on the other hand, though in judicial custody, has
undertaken indefinite fast demanding to maintain status quo if justice cannot
be done to both the regions.

YS Vijayamma and other leaders have also held dharna at Jantar Mantar which
has attracted national focus while Naidu has been maintaining stoic silence or
mumbling incoherent statements on the issue.

“Without withdrawing the letter he has given to the Centre agreeing for
the division, Naidu has no moral right to undertake Yatra of any kind and
cannot step on to Seemandhra region which is on the boil. Though there have
been large-scale protests across Seemandhra, Naidu has been mum and as Leader
of Opposition he is not clear on his stand and his Party’s stand.

TDP leaders in Telangana region have a different slogan to those of the
other region and Naidu’s stoic silence adds to the confusion.

Our stand is clear and unambiguous. What we need is equal justice to
both the regions. No region should feel it is the victor and no region should
think it is vanquished. This is our philosophy and the Centre should work out
an arrangement to this effect, he said.

Without clearing the apprehensions and without working out any viable
and working solution, the Centre cannot go for bifurcation and if it cannot
find such a path, we demand that status quo should be maintained, he said.

Dragging YSR into the issue is another wasteful exercise as it was
explained umpteen number of times that he was for a balanced regional growth.
TDP leaders have no moral right to criticise YSR and his family members.

Instead they should take to task Chandababu Naidu and seek
clarifications on the bifurcation issues and they need not resort to
histrionics at Delhi and other places, he said.
