Speeker:Ambati Rambabu - Mar22,2012

Reiterating that Congress and TDP are sinking boats, YSR Congress on Thursday said the two parties were rejected by the people going by the results of the just concluded by-elections.
“The bravado of TDP saying that could at least field a candidate and campaign in Telangana and Congress stating that they fared better that the main opposition shows that that the two parties have been fast losing their sheen,” party official spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here. 
Since 2009 TDP contested 22 assembly and one parliament seats and lost deposit in 18 places and in the just concluded by-polls Congress and TDP lost their seats other parties.
Taking strong objection to the foul language of N Chandrababu Naidu and state Congress president BotsaSatyanarayana and the baseless allegations levelled against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and the Party, he said, the two parties should account for the amount that was spent heavily during the Kovur by-polls.
“Just expressing solidarity with Anna Hazare is not sufficient but Naidu should tell where did he get the amount that was spent lavishly at Kovur and Bosta should tell about the liquor that flowed during the by-poll besides the cash for vote details,” he said. 
Ridiculing the statement of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Botsa that they own moral responsibility to the debacle, he said, “just owning responsibility is not enough; they should quit their respective positions to make it more credible. Right from Rahul Gandhi to Digvijay Singh every leader has been mouthing these words without giving full credence to the phrase. “
LalBahadurShastry resigned owning moral responsibility as Railway Minister after a train accident; YSR asked two of his party men to quit after the ZP results which went against his Party. These are leadership qualities, he said.   
When asked about Health Minister DL Ravindra Reddy’s resignation letter, he said “it’s Congress internal issue. DL should have resigned when he lost deposit in Kadapa LokSabha election.”
The Kovur results will repeat in the next round of by-elections to 18 assembly and one parliament seat.
