YSRCP demands en masse resignations

Hyderabad: YSR Congress has demanded that TDP should join the fight for Special Category Status (SCS) with all the 25 MPs quitting the Parliament en masse to send a strong signal by putting up a united resolve on the issue.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, party MP P. Mithun Reddy said, ‘we shall first join hands on SCS by quitting the Lok Sabha en masse and the ideological battle can be fought for Assembly elections but in the interest of the State first if we quit and force a by-poll it will have a strong impact on the Centre.

There has been a race and attempts for one-upmanship on the no confidence motion as to who has moved it first and had given later but now we urge Chandrababu Naidu to take the lead by asking his MPs to quit first and we will follow suit.

‘Our joint goal has been to get SCS and how best we can get is an issue which we have to address. It the two main parties show unity and resign, the amount of pressure that would be mounted on the Centre would be immense and Chandrababu Naidu should make use of this opportunity and direct his MPs to quit along with our Party leaders which will have a deep impact on the Centre,’ he said.

The fight for SCS has reached a very crucial stage and it is here that the political parties should judiciously take the issue and public opinion forward and place state interest forward than political ideology, he said.

We are determined to quit on April 6 or whenever the Parliament is adjourned sine die, as directed by our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and this is the time for reckoning for TDP to play its part in the important political development of the state, he said.

On the allegations levelled against Chandrababu Naidu and his son Lokesh, he said, there is a precedence in the state that former Chief Minister Dr YS Rajsekhar Reddy has ordered a CBI inquiry into the serious charges levelled and the same can be done by the chief minister, he said.
