YSRCP slams Union ministers

Press Release

Hyderabad, Feb 6, 2014: Taking strong objection to the union ministers of the State playing the politics of convenience by giving suggestions to the Group of Ministers (GoM), YSR Congress has said some of Congress and TDP leaders are placing business and personal interests ahead of the people’s will and the token protests by them on Delhi streets remain as a cry in the wilderness.

“It is shameful on part of the union ministers to give suggestion to the GoM even in the last minute instead of voicing a strong resentment over the Bill. They were never sincere in the fight for a united state and have been cooperating with the high command throughout and they have been playing politics of convenience,” party spokesperson Vasireddy Padma told reporters here on Thursday.

At a time when things have come to a boil, the behavior of the union ministers is shameful and their true colours have come out. Not a single minister had spoken in favour of a united state but have been put their loyalty to the high command on top. They neither quit the post nor resign from Lok Sabha but they show immense loyalty to high command on one hand speak out against the division for media consumption.

The drama being enacted by Congress and TDP leaders in Delhi has come in for open criticism with the union ministers meeting the GoM, Chandrababu Naidu not withdrawing the letter and never speaking of a firm stand even while meeting leaders of various parties.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has taken up this exercise some six months back and he was very categorical, unlike Naidu who has no specific demand. He has become a laughing stock before the nation, she said.

Lagadapati Rajagopal (Congress) and Sujana Choudary (TDP) have put their business interests ahead of the people’s interests and have received many sops from the Centre to maintain silence on the issue, she said.

“It is time that all parties, cutting across party lines, should come together and fight the issue out,” she said.

The allegations of the rebel Congress candidate for the Rajya Sabha are not true as we have made our party stand very clear that we are not taking part in the elections and will not support any candidate.

She also brushed aside the remarks of JC Diwakar Reddy that YSRCP cannot win in a united state. “We have done it earlier and will do it again,” she said.
