Naidu on “save
congress mission”: YSRCP

Hyderabad, September 22: Expressing dissatisfaction
over the conduct of the five-day Assembly session, YSRCP Deputy floor leader Sobha
Nagi Reddy has said that the Monsoon Session goes down in to the history as the
most unproductive and lackluster one with the treasury and opposition benches
scripting the proceedings in advance.

“We have given adjournment motion on all important
issues from fees reimbursement to power shortage, hike in diesel prices besides
pressing matters of public interest, but the Government has just put aside all
our demands and waded through the five days without taking up a single
discussion,” Sobah Nagi Reddy along with M Sucharitaha and D Krishna Das told
reporters here on Saturday.

The seriousness or the lack of it, on part of the
ruling and main opposition parties was proved during the BAC meeting, which was
skipped by Chief Minister, N Kiran Kumar Reddy and TDP President N Chandrababu
Naidu, she said.

“Our Party President YS Vijaymma and some other
Parties have told the BAC that the session should be held for at least 15 days
but it was confined to only 5 days which passed off with only the homage to
Konda Lakshman Bapuji being the singular participatory event,” she said adding
that ever since the death of YS Rajasekhar Reddy Assembly session has lost its
relevance and people’s issues are never taken up for discussion.

The real opportunity to raise the failures of the
State Government in containing the prices was just wasted away as we wanted to
use the floor of the House to discuss the serious power shortage and the lack
of commitment and foresight on the State and why it is not giving subsidies to
cushion the hike in diesel prices as some of the neighbouring States are doing.

“We also wanted to question the State to pass on
its additional income (VAT) on the hike in diesel running to Rs 900 crores to
the consumers as YSR has done by mitigating the hike with subsidies. Adequate
measures were not taken to help the farmers of the state that has received
erratic rainfall affecting crops in one region and the other reeling under
drought,” she said.

Leader of Opposition N Chanrababu Naidu had failed
to play his designated role and is on a “Save Congress” mission. During the
dharna against diesel price hike at Delhi he shared the dais with Samajwadi
Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav to protest against the UPA decision.

However, the two leaders in unison were in favour
of Congress with Mulayam continuing his support and Chandrababu Naidu being
very vocal in saying that there is no threat of a mid-term poll, she said
adding that the TDP President has secret meetings with the Prime Minister and
Union Minister P Chidambaram in Delhi which confirms his “Save Congress”

When asked about Telangana, she said: “we have made
our stand very clear on umpteen occasions. It is for the Congress take
initiative on the issue.”
