TDP should support no trust vote: YSRCP

Press Release

Hyderabad, March 14, 2013: YSR Congress has asked the TDP to maintain its decorum as the main opposition party by supporting the no confidence motion and not to shirk responsibility.  

"It is time for TDP to support the no confidence motion moved in the house as the Government has failed on all fronts and there is resentment in all sections of people," the Party Deputy floor leader Dharmana Krishna Das told reporters here on Thursday.  

TDP issuing a whip to its members to abstain from voting is undemocratic and is against the principles of parliamentary democracy. It is not late for the leader of Opposition to extend support to the no trust motion when it comes for voting in the House, he said.  

"We hope wisdom will prevail on Chandrababu Naidu and he will change his stand when the issue comes up for voting. TDP members should come forward and should act in a responsible manner," he said.  

We have told that we will support TDP if it moves a no confidence motion and as it failed to live up to expectations, we had to table the motion. The state government is a total failure. Power charges have been steeply increased and there is unprecedented power cuts affecting the agriculture, industrial and domestic sectors.  

Farmers, weavers, students, small and medium industries, students, women and all sections are affected with the increase in power charges, bus fares, agriculture inputs and heavy taxes. 

"It is our responsibility to vent the ire of the people in the House and no confidence motion is one such tool. TDP should also join the voice of public resentment in the form of no confidence motion failing which it loses the sanctity of being the main opposition," he said.  

Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has reversed all the welfare schemes introduced by YSR and his faulty decisions resulted in many hardships to the common man. The state is groping in darkness and is reminding of the nine year rule of N Chandrababu Naidu, who has increased power charges eight times in his nine year term.  

No confidence is one chance to highlight the failures of the State Government and if someone does not want to be part of the proceedings, it will be clear to the people that they have a different agenda, he said.
