Jagan reiterates demand for convening of assembly

Press Release

Hyderabad, October
18, 2013: Reiterating the demand to convene a special session of assembly to
pass a resolution against the division of the State, YSR Congress President YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Leader of
Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu should also join the struggle for a united state
failing which they remain traitors in the State polity.

“We have met the
Governor with the demand to convene the assembly before the draft Bill on the
separate state comes up and our party MLAs and leaders will picket the Chief
Minister’s office with the same demand tomorrow.

The Chief Minister
and Leader of Opposition should join the fight for the united state and convene
the assembly to pass a resolution in favour of an integrated state or else they
will earn a place of traitors in the history of the state politics,” he told
reporters here on Thursday.

Congress President
Sonia Gandhi has been pulling the strings and Kiran Kumar Reddy and Chadnrababu
Naidu are dancing to Delhi tunes. Unless they come to grips with the reality
and honour the mood of the people, they will remain as characterless people, he

The Congress
President has been slithering the future of our children with the motive of
seeing her son Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister and the state leaders are
religiously following her dictates without any concern towards the future of
the people back home, he said.

Attacking Chief
Minister and Naidu for acting as agents of Sonia Gandhi, he said Kiran Kumar
Reddy has been trying to water down the Seemandhra movement with the
divide-and-rule policy by calling union leaders one-by-one and attempting to break
the strike. Chandrababu Naidu on the other hand had undertaken fast in Delhi
seeking a separate state and in the name of protest, we do not know whom all
did he meet and for what purpose.

Commenting on
Digvijay Singh’s statement that the Samaikhyandhra movement is slowing down, he
said: the AICC General Secretary and the Chief Minister are following the
instructions of Congress President in letter and spirit but the ground reality
is otherwise.  

We had earlier urged
the Governor and wrote to Chief Minister to convene the assembly before the
cabinet note is prepared but there was no positive response while Delhi has
been active in the division process and it is time that other parties, more so
TDP, join YSRCP, MIM and CPI (M) in opposing the division of the State.

Cabinet ministers
have changed their tune and have shifted from the united state slogan to
package model which shows that they have compromised. We are serious on
quitting the Lok Sabha and our leaders Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy and SPY Reddy
will leave for Delhi to mount pressure on Speaker to accept the resignations.

If the State is
divided, the entire region from Kuppam to Srikakulam will turn into a desert,
he said and every youth who will be deprived of a chance to secure a job in
Hyderabad will curse Naidu and Kiran Kumar Reddy if they do not fight for the
cause of Samaikhyandhra.

Shankaravam on Oct 26: The permission to hold Samaikhya Shankaravam meeting in
the city was accorded and it will be held on October 26.

Affirming that he
will lead the Samaikhyandhra movement from the forefront, he appealed to all
leaders, cutting across party affiliations, who want to keep the state united
to join the meeting. I also appeal to N Kiran Kumar Reddy and N Chandrababu
Naidu also to extend support to the meeting.

“When I say
Samaikhyandhra, I mean all the three regions of Telangana, Coastal Andhra and
Rayalaseema,” he said.

Replying to a
question on the alleged deal with Congress, Jagan told sarcastically: “Who was
in jail for 16 months and who helped the Centre in getting the FDI Bill passed.
Who was working to keep the state united and who has issued a whip to save the
Congress government when the no confidence motion was moved?

I have been fair and
was always adopting policies for the benefit of common man while TDP leader was
on a Save Congress mission all along.
