United State imperative, says Jagan

Ramakuppam (Chittoor district), December 1, 2013:
Continuing his diatribe against Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Chief Minister
N Kiran Kumar Reddy and TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
said there is an imperative need for the State and the nation to know the need
for a united state and the undemocratic and authoritarian way in which the
division is taking place.

Addressing a huge gathering here on Sunday, Jagan
Mohan Reddy said the Chief Minister has been deceiving the people while the
leader of Opposition Chandrababu NaIdu has been speaking of packages and is not
willing to withdraw the letter he has given to the Centre accepting the

People of the Kuppam should mount pressure on Naidu
to change his mind and take the Samaikya slogan. Naidu has asked people of this
constituency to close down shops when I come here to address the public
meeting. The area should observe a total shut-down when Naidu comes to this
place as he has been a party to the division of the State which is being
carried out by Sonia Gandhi to see that her son is made Prime Minister, he said
amidst a huge round applause.

Naidu should answer where from we will get power
and water if the State is divided. We will plunge into further turmoil as we
are facing a tough situation despite the courts and Tribunals. Water sharing
will be the contentious issue and we are not getting a drop of water unless the
needs of
Maharashtra and Karnataka are fulfilled
despite having courts and Tribunals. If another state comes in between the
situation will worsen, he said.

 If Sonia Gandhi, who has taken Indian
citizenship some 30 years ago, is asked to leave the country, how will the
Congress and the leader react? They will spin on their tails. In that case how
can they ask the Telugu people, who were staying together for the past 60 years
to part, he asked drawing another bout of applause.

“I have selected Kuppam to begin my Samaikya Sankharavam
Yatra as this is the most backward area and the district also is lagging
behind. Every one of you should condemn the division of the State and should
vent your ire through votes and give maximum number of MPs to YSRCP to scuttle
the moves of Delhi to divide the State,’ he said.

Before addressing the public meeting, he unveiled
the statue of YSR and paid rich tributes.

Earlier, addressing a public meeting at Santipuram
of Kuppam constituency, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy asked the people if they want a
division and if the Telugu people have to fight for water and Hyderabad they
have shouted in unison “no” which reverberated at the venue.

The Yatra is aimed at bringing in politics with
accountability and responsibility and to usher in a change in the political
system laden with intrigue and selfishness. It is a pity that people who do not
know Telugu and the richness of its culture are trying to split the State, he

Elections are round the corner, and if the people
of the State voice their concern for a united state in votes and we win 30
Parliament seats, we will be in a position to decide the next Prime Minister
and play a key role in national politics and keep the state united, he said.

Continuing his diatribe against Congress President
Sonia Gandhi, Chief Minister K Kiran Kumar Reddy and TDP leader N Chandrababau
Naidu, he said they are plotting to divide the state for political gains.

Naidu who has given a letter accepting the division
refuses to give take back the letter and never utters Samaikhya Andhra even
once while the Chief Minister has been sending officials to
to expedite the division process and
does not concede to our demand of convening the assembly to pass a resolution
against the division. The two leaders are resorting to theatrics, he said.

Reiterating that this is a fight between
arrogance and
Telugu self respect, he said, it is not how many days you lived but how you
lived and for what values that matters.  A leader should live in the
hearts of the people even after his death.

This is the second day of the Samaikhya Shankaravam
