T Cong leaders scared of Vijayamma's tour

Hyderabad, Oct 31,
2013: YSR Congress Party on Thursday objected to the disruption of its
honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma’s tour in the flood-hit areas of the
Khammam district by the T activists.

“The T-JAC and
T-Congress leaders have resorted to this denigrating act as they are scared that
the Samaikya Andhra sentiment may get strengthened and the T movement may lose
its momentum,” party senior leader and political affairs committee member
Bajireddy Govardhan told media persons here.

He said Smt.
Vijayamma undertook the tour to meet the famers in the flood-affected areas and
console them. “If you are so concerned about the Telangana, why are you
allowing Chief Minister Kiran Kumar to move in the Telangana area? Why do you
continue in the cabinet headed by Kiran who has claimed to be a protagonist of
Samaikyandhra?” he asked the ministers Jana Reddy and Uttam Kumar Reddy.

“The tour is
non-political. She is only intending to meet the flood victims and the farmers
to know their suffering. She is not making any political statements during her
tour. Where is the need to disrupt her tour,” he questioned and remarked. “Your
action only exposes your lack of sincerity towards the problems of the farmers
in the area.” 

Bajireddy said the
Government has abandoned the people’s welfare after the death of YSR and is not
showing any inclination to help the victims of the Phailin cyclone and the
recent rain fury now. “As a responsible opposition leader and leader of the
YSRCLP, she is touring the flood hit areas. What is wrong in it?”

He said it is wrong
on part of the T-JAC, Ministers and T-Congress leaders to provoke people in the
name of Telangana and obstruct her tour. “She wants to raise the suffering of
the farmers and the losses they have suffered in the recent floods in the next
assembly session. It is wrong for you to give a political colour to Smt.
Vijayamma tour,” he told them.

Asking the T-JAC and
T-Congress leaders not to provoke the Telangana people, Govardhan said very
soon party president Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy will also undertake a tour
across the state and appealed to the T congress leaders to cooperate.

Suppression of
democratic rights: Gattu

YSRCP leader Gattu Ramachandra Rao
condemned the arrest of Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma during her tour of the flood-hit
areas in Khammam district.

“It is the
responsibility of the Government to elevate democracy and protect the
democratic rights of the people. But the Government itself murdered the
democracy in the state by getting Smt. Vijayamma arrested by the police,” Gattu
told another press meet.

It is shameful on
part of the Government to have prevented her from touring the flood-hit areas
of the Nalgonda district by arresting her, he said, adding that the arrest was
affected with the fear that Smt. Vijayamma may get a tremendous response from
the Nalgonda district people as in Khammam district.

The arrest was made
at the behest of CM Kiran Kumar Reddy who is determined to implement the bifurcation
agenda of Congress president Sonia Gandhi in conspiracy with the ministers Jana
Reddy and Uttam Kumar Reddy.

“It is not the
people who obstructed the tour of Smt. Vijayamma but it is a few individuals and
Goondas who resorted to the undemocratic act of disrupting her visit,” he said,
adding the arrest was the most atrocious act committed by the Government.

The T Congress
leaders are worried that their true colours will be exposed if Smt. Vijayamma
undertakes the tour of the Telangana districts, he said and demanded the CM to
dismiss both Jana Reddy and Uttam Kumar Reddy immediately from the Cabinet.
