YSRCP dharna at Delhi on Feb 17

Hyderabad, Feb 10, 2014: YSR Congress party
would organize a dharna at New Delhi on February 17 in protest
against the proposed State Reorganisation and would continue its agitation to
keep the State united.  

“About 7,000 party workers and leaders would
sit on a dharna at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to protest against the proposed
tabling of Telangana Bill in the parliament. The party cadre and leaders will
leave for Delhi on February 15 by two special trains,” party senior leader
Umareddy Venkateswarlu told reporters here on Saturday.

We will highlight the single-minded approach
of the Congress in dividing the State though 75 % of the population is against
it. Any Bill with financial implications will have to be introduced in the Lok
Sabha and not in Rajya Sabha.

The proposal to table the Bill in the
Parliament will be opposed by our Party and we will carry out the protest and a
public meeting in the national capital.

For the past six to seven months there have
been agitations and our Party has been a strong contender for a united state.
Right from the day of CWC decision to split the state we have taken up various
programmes against the division.  

“Our Party president has met leaders of all
national and regional parties and could mobilize opinion against the misuse of
article 3. During the Hyderabad rally also he has made it very clear that all
the three regions will be affected with the division.  

In continuation of our agitation we will
stage a dharna and hold a protest at Delhi as the scene has shifted to the
national capital,” he said.  

“The two special trains will leave from
Tirupati and Rajahundry on February 15 and pick up cadre and leaders
en route,” he said.  

Dharmana to join YSRCP

Meanwhile, in a separate press conference
party spokesperson Vasireddy Padma has said that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will be
addressing public meeting in Visakhapatnam and Srikakulam today
and tomorrow.  

In the Srikakulam meeting, former minister
Dharmana Prasada Rao will join the party along with MLAs Vijay Kumar and

Late Sri NTR’s wife Lakshmiparvathi will also
join the party in the Srikakulam meeting, she said and scoffed the reports that
people are leaving YSRCP. “We have been selective in taking people into the
party and those who could not make it have been spreading rumours,” she said.
