Ministers' Committee is like Simon Commission

Press Release

Hyderabad, Oct 9, 2013: Likening the Group of Ministers (GoM) to the Simon Commission, YSR Congress has demanded the Centre to forthwith stop any further process of division of the State and called upon all parties to join hands in the fight for a united state.

“We also demand the state to convene a special session of Assembly to pass a resolution to keep the State united. After that all Semandhra leaders should quit while the Central ministers and MPs should also resign to create a constitutional crisis which can stall the process,” party senior leader Konatala Ramakrshna told reporters here on Wednesday.

Our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s fast has entered the fifth day, his sugar levels are falling down and doctors have strongly advised him to withdraw the fast. Yet he has taken up the cause of the unite state and has appealed to all parties to join hands in keeping the state united as the division is aimed at short term political gains engineered by Congress and Sonia Gandhi to make Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister.

They do not have concern for the sentiments of the crores of people who are on strike for the past 70 days and the process of division should be stopped only by creating a constitutional crisis as told by our President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, he said.

As the Seemandhra movement is no less than the freedom struggle, the seven-member GoM has been proceeding with the task of dividing the state we have to oppose it as the Simon Commission was combated, he said.

“We have also represented the matter to the President who said that the GoM will address to all the issues but instead the process of division is being expedited without showing any solution to the problems we have highlighted,” he said.

The Union Ministers and MPs are also speaking in an ambiguous manner and there is no clarity whether or not they had laid down office. Some say their resignation letters are with Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) while in the case of others it seems that Sonia Gandhi has pacified them.

“We appeal to all leaders cutting across party lines to join the fight for a united state. Chandrababu Naidu has taken with him his duality to Delhi and has baffled top newscasters who could not elicit his exact view point. If he spells out his stand with clarity and withdraws his earlier letter which he has given supporting the division, he too can join the struggle for a united state,” Ramakrishna said. YA
