Time for decisive fight on Spl. Status

Hyderabad, May 6: Appealing to the people to raise to the occasion and join the fight for special status as this is the time of reckoning, YSR Congress has said that Chandrababu Naidu has mortgaged the interests of the people and is working for personal gains instead of state’s priorities.

‘The May 10 dharna seeking special status has a wide appeal as every section of the society is looking forward for it while TDP has been dilly-dallying the issue and the Centre has vehemently said no to the special category status.

During elections, from the dais shared by Narender Modi, M Venkaiah Naidu and N Chandrababu Naidu it was said that special category status will be accorded but after the coalition comes to power but they have been side-stepping the issue, party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Friday.

Chandababu Naidu is scared of asking the Centre as he is involved in many scams and has lost face on one hand and his remarks that Centre should not be blamed as it will take a right decision at an appropriate time only shows the level in which he has surrendered to the centre.

We have waited for two years and all along we have been raising the issue at various fronts and when it was repeatedly negated in Parliament we have taken up the issue and want to vent the voice of the people. The May 10 dharna is the beginning of what could be a decisive fight to achieve the special status which got the cabinet nod and was assured of in the Parliament and was also assured during electioneering.

‘This is the time to raise to the occasion and Chandrababu Naidu may put hurdles by  misusing official machinery to foil the dharna by preventive arrests and using such repressive measures but we are determined to take up the issue in a big way and we cannot let go the State and Centre on special status which provides exemptions and incentives that will create more employment opportunities,’ he said.

Chandrababu Naidu seems to be scared of TRS and BJP and he has always bargained for his personal gains and not for the state welfare. His remarks that he will go to Delhi and talk to the people is just an eye-wash as he has done nothing for the past two years but only surrender to the Centre.

If he is sincere in the special status, he should withdraw support to NDA and ask his two MPs to quit the union cabinet and then fight but being part of the coalition and boasting of a fight is ridiculous, he said.
