, Sept 19, 2013:
YSRCP on Wednesday announced that its MLAs, MLCs and
leaders would stage Dharna at the Gandhi statue in the Assembly premises on Sept 20 in support of the Samaikyandhra cause and demanding the
TDP chief  Chandrababu Naidu to  withdraw his support letter to bifurcation
apart from quitting his post.

this to reporters here, YSR Congress Legislature Party Deputy Leader Sobha Nagi
Reddy said the Dharna would be preceded by Padayatra of the party leaders from
Telugu Talli statue to the Gandhi Statue.

“We have
decided to undertake the Padayatra and stage Dharna at the Gandhi Statue
demanding Naidu to take back his support letter to bifurcation of the state and
also quit his post. Apart from Naidu, his party MLAs also should resign their
posts in support of Samaikyandhra cause,” she said.

She also asked
the Seema Andhra Congress leaders to stop their political dramas and state
their stand clearly on the issue.

People are
puzzled at the street plays being enacted by both TDP and Congress leaders on
bifurcation. “On one hand, Naidu has asked his T- leaders to send the message
to the Telangana people that bifurcation has been the result of the TDP’s
letter of support while on the other his party MLAs in Seema Andhra is enacting
street plays opposing the bifurcation. Why enact this political drama?” she
asked Naidu.

Referring to
Naidu’s plans to take leaders of both regions to Delhi
to solve the issue, she ridiculed the idea and asked: “What do you want to
achieve by taking the leaders to

Also objecting
to Seemandhra Congress leaders’ ambiguous stance on the issue, Sobha told them
to come out clear on their stand on bifurcation. “Are you for bifurcation or
Samaikyandhra? Make your stand clear,” she told them.

Sobha Nagi
Reddy observed that Naidu was allowed to move in Seeemandhra despite his blank
cheque support to Telangana formation as the people there are very sober. “If
you don’t take back your support letter to bifurcation, you will meet the same
fate in the next elections as in 2004 and 2009,” she warned him.

She said TDP
agreed to bifurcation even in its manifesto and Naidu also subsequently gave
letter in support Telangana. “But you should realize your mistakes at least now
and take back your letter of support. Instead of misusing your long experience
to ensure denial of bail to our party Chief Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy, use one
tenth of your conspiratorial skills properly and try to stop the division of
the state recognizing the aspirations of the Seemandhra people who have been
relentlessly agitating for the last 50 days.”
