YSRCP to intensify agitation from Dec 10

December 8, 2013: Stepping up its agitation against the bifurcation of the State, YS
Congress Party has chalked out a protest programme to reach out to the people
and voice their concern to

and attract national attention and will take up blockade of highways on
December 12 which is likely to be the first day of Assembly session. 

“With protests by all the integrationists going on
for the past 130 days, the Party would intensify the agitation and involve
people of all sections in the movement against the division of the state from
December 10 onwards and the resentment will echo in Delhi,” party deputy floor
leader Sobha Nagi Reddy told reporters here on Saturday.

Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has drafted
the agitation programme as the resentment should come from grass root level and
involve all sections of people.  He has been touring the country and
mobilising support of national and regional party leaders as well to widen the
canvas of resentment on the division and the need to amend article 3.

On December 10 a protest rally by students and
youth would be held against the division as they would be bearing the brunt
after the State is divided. On December 11, we will organise tractors rally by
farmers seeking a united state in all the 13 Seemandhra districts as sharing of
river waters would be the main issue after the division.

On December 12, which is supposed to be the first
day of the Assembly session, highway blockade programme would be taken up to
voice the protest against the division of the State.

On December 13, a meeting with all sections of
people would be organized to highlight the undemocratic manner in which the
state is being bifurcated and the dangerous consequences that would crop up in
the aftermath of the division.

From December 14 onwards, there will be meetings in
every constituency to highlight the authoritarian and undemocratic attitude of
the Congress and the irresponsible TDP which has no clarity and is ambiguous on
such a crucial issue.

Both Congress and TDP have watered down the
Seemandhra agitation by their indifference. While Congress leaders lacked unity
and were speaking in many versions, sometimes contradictory even, TDP has to take
the blame for giving the letter in favour of division well in advance.

TDP President, despite being in public life for
over 30 years lacked maturity and has been encouraging hid cadre in both
regions to adopt contrasting lines while he has been mum. He neither withdraws
the letter he has given in favour of division nor does he stand for a united
state. With all his experience he could not say that an assembly resolution is
needed for passing the Telangana Bill.

“Our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy though he is
relatively new to politics has been following democratic principles and has
become the voice of the people as he believes in value-based politics. Congress
leaders--Union Ministers, MPs, State Ministers and MLAs--lack coordination and
are a confused.

Of late they have been speaking as if they belong
to a separate group and are not members of the Congress party. If they are not
happy with the CWC decision, they would have quit the Party immediately as
speaking against the Party decision tantamount to anti-party activity.

With both the Parties losing confidence of the
people, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has emerged as the sole leader who could lead the
state and safeguard its interests, she said.
