Naidu alone responsible for State division

Press Release

Hyderabad, Aug 21,
2013: Squarely blaming TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu for the division of the
state, YSR Congress has said that it was YSR who had the vision of a statesman
and could keep the state united.

“The proposed yatra of
Chandrababu Naidu lacks conviction as he has sold the people’s self-respect by
giving his nod for bifurcation of the state on six occasions while YSR was a
strong votary of united state and worked for balanced regional development,
“former MLA Praveen Kumar Reddy told reporters here on Monday.

While the TDP leader
enjoys the distinction of being Chief Minister of the State for nine years, he
turned into a traitor by giving his nod to the Centre and Sonia Gandhi to
divide the state into two showing no concern for the people’s sentiments.

 Starting with the
letter to the Pranab Mukherjee Committee, Naidu has reiterated his stand of
division during All Party Meetings, election manifesto and voluntarily as well.
TDP leader planning to undertake a yatra to safeguard the self-respect of
Telugu people is a farce as he has deceived the people of state, he said.

“This is nothing short
of betrayal, which is not new to him as he has backstabbed the TDP founder
leader NT Rama Rao to usurp the Party and power. Going to the people on the
plank of self-respect of Telugu people will boomerang on him as it was he who
was responsible for the present crisis.

He could not handle the
issue properly and leaders like KCR in early stages to Nagam Janardhan Reddy in
recent times who have parted ways. Naidu on his part has given his nod to
bifurcate the state, without even discussing the logistics and consequences on
at least six occasions and when YSRCP MLAs had quit the party in protest
against the unjust division, TDP did not react to the situation in a proper
way,” he said.

Instead, Naidu now
blaming YSR for the division will cut no ice. It was YSR who had handled
delicate situations with great maturity and had seen to it that there would be
no scope for a separatist movement by addressing the problems of all regions
with equal importance.

There was no need for
any dissent as he carried out the development activity in all regions and had
done justice to all regions. Neither Sonia Gandhi nor KCR had dared to talk
about the division of the state as YSR had given no scope for resentment from
any region and YSR was a strong leader, he said.

Naidu who has given the
financials for a new capital cannot face the people as he established that he
was a total sell-out to the Centre.

On the eve of the
padayatra, he had given a letter to the Centre in favour of Telangana to have a
smooth sail in Telangana region.

If felling of trees is
a crime, Naidu is a violator as he had given the axe and sharpened it time and
again to cut the 60 year tree of Andhra Pradesh, he said.
