TDP harping for cheap publicity

Press Release

Hyderabad, July 3, 2013: Criticising TDP for trying
to politicise the Uttakahad relief work, YSR Congress has said that the Leader
of Opposition has been trying to cover up his laxity in attending to the
people’s problems by making an issue out of the natural calamity.

“TDP leaders and N Chandrababu Naidu have been
trying to eke out cheap publicity out of the gory tragedy at Uttarakhand only
to divert the attention of the people as they failed in their duty of
questioning the state government when it has been increasing the power charges,
fertilizer prices and petroleum products,” Party leader Perni Nani told
reporters here on Tuesday.

TDP leader Y Ramakrishnudu has been critical about
the issue, though it is a fact that YSR Congress was the first to send a
medical team to Uttarakhand for relief operations. Ramakrishnudu, being the
leader of the Party in the Council instead of questioning the anti-people
policies of the Congress has been resorting to cheap gimmicks, he said.

“All this shows that that TDP and Congress are
afraid of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as YSRCP has been in the forefront and is
getting wide public support,” he said.

On the remarks of senior Congress leader Digvijay
Singh, he said “it is unbecoming of him to pass such comments like DNA. Country
wide many people came out of Congress and had started separate parties due to
difference of opinion.

Even Chandrababu Naidu was with Congress though
switched sides for selfish reasons.

Digvijay Singh’s remarks on the
politico-entrepreneurial status of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy are uncalled for. There
are many politicians who have business houses and vice versa. YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy had to plunge into active politics only after the death of his father and
started the party when things were clear that there was no room in Congress
Party to carry out the ideology of YSR,” he said.

On Telangana, he said the Party stand was clearly
told to the Centre and there is no change on the issue.
