Sharmila castigates CM over bifurcation

(Prakasam dist), September 11, 2013: Castigating Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy for
his indifference in the division of State issue, YSRCP leader Sharmila has said
he should speak out if the decision was taken with or without his consent and
reiterated her Party demand that the State should be left united as the Centre
has no solutions to the impending problems arising out of the bifurcation.

Chief Minister should answer if the Congress Party has taken his consent before
arriving at the decision of splitting the State. If he was consulted, he
becomes part of the irrational exercise and if he was not consulted his
presence becomes irrelevant,’ Sharmila told a public meeting here on Tuesday as part of her Samaikhya Shankaravam Bus Yatra.

such a gross injustice is being meted out to one region just to gain political
mileage in another region, the Chief Minister looks a simpleton by his silence.
He should clear the apprehensions among the people and be categorical whether
he was part of the decision to divide the state or it was taken without his
knowledge, she said.

decision of Congress to divide the State was aimed at merging TRS with it and
thereby to gain a handful of seats at the cost of socio-economic and ethnic
crisis in the other region.

of the CWC decision, YSRCP MLAs had quit their posts in protest and had Chief
Minister and other Congress leaders of Seemandhra along with TDP leaders followed
them, the crisis would not have deepened but would have been blown away.

that was not the case, while YSRCP is with the people, Congress leaders are
after power. The Chief Minister was not elected but nominated and his post came
on a platter to him while YSR toiled to bring Congress to power for the second

leader N Chandrababu Naidu on the other hand, had given an unconditional letter
accepting the division of the state and it worked like a lethal weapon for
Delhi. Now Naidu going to town in the name of Self Respect Yatra has no sense.
He has to apologise and withdraw the letter he had given to Congress before
going to the people or else people will question and drive him away, she said.

Centre is driving people of Seemndhra to chaos as they are denying the rightful
share of water and the place in the state capital. The division would give rise
to water sharing issues and Hyderabad city is very complicated. Without
addressing these urgent problems, the Centre is going ahead with the
bifurcation process which will spell doom to Seemandhra region.

party stand is clear and standard since beginning. If the Centre cannot do
justice to both regions, it should maintain status quo and has no right to
divide the State.

YSR was the Chief Minister, he has balanced welfare and development and his
Aarogyasri, fees reimbursement and other schemes has benefitted all sections of
the people. The present Congress government has done away with all the schemes
and YS Jagan Moahan Reddy will come out and bring back the golden rule, she

Bus Yatra arrived from Kavali in Nellore district and will reach Markapuram
later in the day.
