Stop theatrics, YSRCP tells Naidu

May 20, 2013: YSR Congress has asked N Chandrababu Naidu to put an end to his
theatrics like seeking the President’s intervention to sack the tainted
ministers even as he is on a Save Congress mission by assuring the safety of
Kiran Kumar government in the state.

TDP leaders’
visits are always linked to some major
development in the state which has become Naidu’s wont and demanding the
removal of a select few ministers only means that he is shielding the Congress
government, party spokesperson Gattu Ramachandra Rao told reporters here on

“If the ministers are tainted,
the GOs have mala fide intentions and were issued against the business rules in
which case, Naidu should be seeking the President’s intervention to dissolve
the assembly. After the stage is set for the removal of two ministers, Naidu
shows his theatrics by going to the President and seeking the removal of the

The government has filed an affidavit
with the Supreme Court that the GOs were issued in accordance to the business
rules and now Naidu naming the ministers as tainted tantamount to questioning
the credentials of the GOs.

When Naidu faced a similar
situation in the liquor case and IMG case, he contended that the GOs were
issued by a majority (elected) government and it was in the policy of the
government and it cannot be questioned. 

The same yardstick can also
apply in the 26 GOs as well, but neither Naidu nor the Chief Minister is prepared
to take that line. They only wanted some short term gains like putting YS Jagan
Mohan Reddy in jail by not filing a counter.

When the issue became larger,
it misfired and the ministers are placed in a piquant situation. If Naidu’s
contention is that the ministers are tainted the GOs must be wrong then he
should be asking for the ouster of cabinet or the dissolution of the Assembly,
he said.

Naidu has an understanding
with Congress high command which is guarding him from all the allegations he is
facing and the state government is working in tandem against the common
adversary YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Had Naidu supported the no
confidence motion moved by YSRCP and TRS, the Centre would have unleashed CBI
against him.

The perfect understanding
between ruling Congress and main opposition TDP had made him remain silent
while the no trust vote was moved and has been getting advance information on
the high command moves so that he can act his bit as the opposition leader, the
reason why he is in Delhi and days before that he met the Governor on the same
issue. He did not raise the issue while the assembly was in session shows his
double standards, he said.  

He also made a big show of the
book at
but his political ally CPM has published books against him and his shady deals.
Naidu has never faced a trial and no court has given him a clean chit and
people will believe him only if he voluntarily agrees for a probe into all the
allegations he is facing, Ramachandra Rao said.
