Speaker: GattuRamachandra Rao-Mar6,2012

YSR Congress Party on Thursday lambasted Congress
and TDP for passing sacrilegious remarks against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
in wake of the Kovur assembly by-election.
While  N Chandrababu Naidu has been speaking out of frustration as he
has become irrelevant and outdated to politics, N Kiran Kumar Reddy
has lost contact with people as he was imposed on them by the party
high command,” party spokesperson, GattuRamachandra Rao told
reporters here.
Taking serious objection to chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy saying
that it was below his level to speak about Jagan, Gattu said, “since
Kiran Kumar Reddy is an import and he was imposed on the people as a
leader, he certainly is not on par with YS Jagan Mohan Reddy who is
among the masses all the time.”
Congress has conceded defeat even before the battle began when Kiran
Kumar Reddy said that the by-polls are not a referendum to his
governance. The defeat was further ratified when Congress declared
that they will be giving a fight in three to four constituencies as
the results in the five states are haunting Congress and the trend
will continue.
Senior Congress leader V Hanumatha Rao saying that the corrupt will be
defeated must apply to Uttar Pradesh as well. Congress hardly won a
couple of assembly seats in Amethi and Rai Bareli represented by Rahul
Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.
TDP leader, during his campaign in Kovur, calling Jagan Mohan Reddy
names is intolerable and “if Naidu repeats the same, he should face
dire consequences,” Gattu said.
His slogans of reject the incompetent and corrupt was well taken by
the electorate in 2004 and 2009 and he was shown his place by
rejecting him. Any insult to YSR or his family members is an insult to
the Telugu people who will again teach him a lesson, he said.
YS Jagan was in the open to face any consequence and he was not in
hiding as being projected TDP and its mouthpiece papers, Gattu said
and reiterated that if he stoops to the level of calling names like
thief and the like, he will be sternly dealt with by people.
 The bravado of trying to equate the cycle victory in Uttar Pradesh
will follow in Andhra Pradesh is a mirage as Mulayam Singh has founded
the cycle in the state while Chandrababu Naidu has usurped the party
and the symbol from the founder NTR through back-stabbing and
nefarious means, he said.
Trying to project himself as a national leader and an important factor
in the formation of Third Front, Gattu said, Naidu has to either sail
up UPA or NDA and he has already opened new chapter with Congress by
ganging up with it and BJP is an old hat for him.
There will be no room for him in the Third Front, as and when it
emerges as Naidu’s popularity and manipulative tactics are well known,
he said.
