Vayalar’s alliance talk is one-sided love affair

Hyderabad, Jan 19,
2013: YSR Congress party on Saturday described as one-sided love affair the statement
of Congress senior leader and Union Minister Vayalar Ravi that AP Congress
would discuss the poll alliance with the YSR Congress party.

Addressing a media meet
at the party headquarters, Party senior leader and Political Affairs Committee
member Dr.M.V.Mysura Reddy said there is no need for YSRCP to have a poll
alliance with a party which wouldn’t get even a three digit figure (read as
100) in the general elections.

“We will contest
independently in the state,” he said, adding that Vayalar’s statement at the
Congress party’s Jaipur ‘Chintan Shivir’ meet could at best be called a
‘one-sided love affair’ and YSRCP would have nothing to do with it.

When asked about party
President Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s statement two years ago that he would
support the UPA alliance, Mysura clarified Jagan meant to say that he would
only support the secular parties keeping in mind the political stability of the
nation. “He ruled out any sort of support to the BJP and clarified that he
would only support secular parties and if necessary, he would extend support to
the UPA as a last option to ensure political stability at the national
level,” Mysura explained.

He also expressed doubts
that there could be secret alliances between Congress and the TDP. “Let TDP
introduce a no-confidence motion against the Congress Government in the state
to prove it has no understanding with the Congress,” he said.
