YSR Congress rules out merger with any party

Strictly ruling out its merger with any
other party at any point of time, YSR Congress challenged the opposition Telugu
Desam Party to introduce a no confidence motion in the assembly against the

Addressing a press conference at the
party headquarters in Hyderabad on Saturday, September 08, party spokespersons
Bajireddy Goverdhan, Vasireddy Padma and Rehman strongly condemned the
politically inspired media propaganda that the YSR Congress would merge with
Congress party.

“Ours is not like Chiranjeevi party and
there is no need for our party to merge with any other party. We will continue
to remain independent as state needs the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy,”
they said firmly. “Why shall we merge with any other party when we are gaining
popularity day by day?” 

Finding fault with the PTI staffer who
filed a false report on Friday saying that YSR Congress honourary president
Smt. Y.S Vijayamma has not ruled out the party’s merger with the Congress,
Bajireddy and Padma said coverts are also working in the media on behalf of
some political parties. Some political parties are also involved in the
conspiracy, they observed.

Calling the PTI report unfortunate, the
leaders took umbrage to the delayed telecast of the party’s rejoinder and
condemnation of the falsified report in some channels. “We don’t understand why
some channels took more than half an hour to telecast the denial of PTI report
by Vijayamma,” they said. They asked the media to report without any sort of bias.

Reiterating the party’s view that the
TDP has been in collusion with the Congress, the three leaders have asked the
TDP to introduce a no confidence motion against the Kirankumar Reddy government
to know who is colluding with whom.

“Let TDP introduce a no confidence
motion on Sept 17 when the assembly session begins and you will know what we
will do,” they said.

Govardhan charged the TDP with
unleashing a mudslinging campaign against the YSRCP. “During the recent by
elections, TDP had made false propaganda that our party would support BJP and
now it has spread rumors that we will merge with Congress,” they said.

Naidu colluding with Congress

Charging TDP with hobnobbing with the
Congress, the YSR Congress leaders said Chandrababu Naidu went to Delhi to conspire
against Jagan Mohan Reddy who was jailed for no fault of his.

“Naidu met four congress MPs in Delhi
and conspired with them to downsize the growing popularity of Jagan,” they

Padma spiced the charge against the TDP
by adding that Naidu in the past used to show ‘V’ symbol with his fingers for
victory but now he has recently started showing the hand symbol to indicate he
has colluded with the Congress.

She also charged the Congress leaders
with trying to confuse the people by praising YSR in Delhi and simultaneously
unleashing a false campaign in Hyderabad through media on Friday. “It is all to
send a false message to people that YSRCP is moving closer to the Congress,”
Padma charged.

Why not YSR statue in AP Bhavan?

Rehman asked the Congress leaders and
Government as to why they didn’t till now try to install YSR statue in the AP
Bhavan in Delhi when they are heaping so much praise on the late chief minister
