YSRCP slams Kiran for remarks on Jagan

, December 19:
Coming down heavily on Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy for his remarks
on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy being in jail, YSR Congress has said, it was the joint
conspiracy of Congress and TDP that was responsible for the undemocratic arrest
of the Kadapa MP. 

“Our leader was
arrested for defying Congress High Command and going ahead with the independent
agenda of fighting for the cause of people and for not cooperating with Congress,”
 YSRCP spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Wednesday. 

Though the Chief
Minister claims that Congress and the Government has nothing to do with the

foisted against Jagan Mohan Reddy are false and his arrest has been
undemocratic and Kiran Kumar Reddy and Naidu have been misleading the people
with distorted versions, he said. 

Kiran Kumar
Reddy’s governance has been in dire straits and in pitch darkness as the state
is reeling under severe power crisis and its image is at rock bottom while the
Chief Minister trying to redeem some of its lost prestige but he will go down
in the history as bringing fewer number of MLAs to the Assembly after the next
election and will not even have the Opposition Party status, he said. 

Expressing no
surprise over TDP leader rejecting the resignation of Sujana Choudhary, who did
not participate in the voting on FDI in retail issue in Rajya Sabha, he said,
“that is a foregone conclusion as the three MPs abstained from voting on the
directions of Naidu himself.” 

Naidu has been
lobbying for FDI into the Heritage Foods as it has to come out of the red and
the TDP President is a potential beneficiary from the FDI in retail sector, he

The knee surgery
of Sharmila was successful and as per doctors advice she will resume padayatra,

When asked about the tussle with TRS, he said, “YSRCP does not believe
in violence. We believe in democracy. It was an issue which brought to the fore
the ideology of both the parties.
