YSRC dares TDP to move no confidence

Alleging that TDP has a tacit
understanding with Congress at the State and Centre, YSR Congress has dared N
Chandrababu Naidu to move a no confidence motion on the opening day of the
Monsoon session of the Assembly.

Speaking to the media at the
party headquarters in Hyderabad on Monday, Sept 10, Party spokesperson
Vasireddy Padma said the recent one-to-one meeting of the TDP President with
Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has raised doubts that the main opposition
Party in the State is working in tandem with the ruling Congress.

She said YSR Congress has seen
such unholy alliance between TDP and Congress during the nomination of
Information Commissioners, during the recent by-polls and on many other
occasions. “The propaganda of TDP leaders that our Party will merge with
Congress is ridiculous. We have given a rejoinder in the strongest possible
terms and have successfully fought the false propaganda unleashed by some
vested interests,” she said.

Padma said that TDP has been
working in unison with Congress while YSR Congress has been in the forefront of
the battleground since its formation. “If the TDP wants to justify its
anti-Congress brand, it should move a no confidence motion in the ensuing
assembly session and we will support it. People will know who is on which side
of the fence,” she dared the TDP leadership. 

She said some unpleasant
reports have been circulated, deliberately or otherwise about YSRCP but the
party has made its stand loud and clear that it is the main challenger to the
Congress in the state. Our Party will also play an important role at the Centre
in the days to come, she said.

Brushing aside TDP allegations
that YSRCP has been using media to further its political cause, Padma said,
“Political Parties that have no public support rely heavily on slanted reports
and biased media. The mandate our party got is evident from the recent
by-polls,” she said.   

Recalling a recent report about
corporate funding of political parties, she said, TDP and Congress were the
major beneficiaries in the state according to the study. “Only the disclosed
amount runs into Rs 50 Cr in case of TDP and we demand that an inquiry should
be ordered into the functioning and funds-flow of NTR Trust of which N
Chandrababu Naidu is the sole custodian,” she said.
