Jagan to play key role after next elections

Press Release

Hyderabad, October 19, 2013: Mocking at the TDP allegations that the Party is having a deal with Congress, YSR Congress has reaffirmed that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will play a key role in the state and national politics after the 2014 elections.

“It is not our leader who will be going round UPA but the entire polity will revolve round YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in the aftermath  of 2014 poll verdict,” party senior leader Umareddy Venkateswarlu told reporters here on Friday.

The question of YSRCP giving support to UPA does not arise as the Sonia Gandhi-led Congress will bite dust in the next election and Rahul Gandhi’s wish of becoming the Prime Minister will be a distant dream and it is difficult to image the position of TDP which has been on a Save Congress mission.

It is ridiculous to level baseless charges by TDP that we are game with Congress. The decision to split the state into two is that of Congress party and we have been vehemently opposing it. TDP on the other hand has had tie-up with TRS and gave a letter accepting the division of the state.

Chandrababu Naidu, who has been overtly very vocal that the Congress government should not continue in the state, did not react properly and move a no-confidence motion before the merger of PRP with Congress. When YSRCP took the lead to move the no trust motion, he has issued a whip to his MLAs to keep away from voting against the Government.

The situation and sequence of events clearly show who has been helping whom and who has an understanding with whom. If TDP accuses us of working in tandem with Congress the allegation is baseless and irrelevant, he said.  

In a panel discussion a Congress legislator had said that Chandrababu Naidu has been supporting Congress for the past 4.5 years. A TDP MLA who also participated in the panel discussion did not even object to the Congress leader’s remarks. This shows who is on which side, he added.
