Vijayamma trashes merger reports

Hyderabad, September 16: YSR Congress
party honorary president YS Vijayamma on Sunday denied the reports of her
party's merger with the Congress party. Talking to media persons in the
Assembly premises, Vijayamma described the reports of merger as the creation of

She said there was no truth in those
reports and accused a section of media of fabricating facts and distorting
statements to defame the YSR Congress party. 

She also dismissed the reports of some
secret understanding with the Congress party to ensure bail for her son and
Kadapa MP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. She said that Jagan has been in jail for over
90 days and he has now approached the Supreme Court for the bail. 

Regarding the assembly session,
Vijayamma said that both the ruling Congress and main opposition party TDP were
not serious about the session and the absence of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar
Reddy and TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu from the Business Advisory
Committee meeting was a proof for the same. 

Demanding that the session should have
been held for at least 15 working days, she said that the YSRCP would seek
debate on the issues of Fee Reimbursement, power crisis, improper supply of
power, seeds and fertilizers to farmers issues and drinking water in drought
affected areas. 

Vijayamma slammed that State
Government for its failure to tide over energy crisis. She said about 6.5 lakh
industries in the State were on ventilation due to improper supply of power.
She alleged that the lakhs of daily wage labourers have lost their livelihood
due to government's inefficiency in dealing with the power crisis. 

She asked the government to fix a
deadline for the completion of Jalayagnam projects. Claiming that former Chief
Minister Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy, during his regime, has subsidised the hike in
LPG prices, she demanded that Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy emulate YSR to
reduce the burden from the common man.
