Hyderabad, Feb 3 : With the national parties cold-shouldering the tabling of State Reorganisation Bill, the divisive design of Congress is under scanner and YSR Congress view point has been endorsed by the nation, the theatrics of Kiran Kumar Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu notwithstanding.
“The Chief Minister has been playing a double game by helping the divisive forces in Delhi on one hand and trying to project himself as an integrationist back home while Naidu has been desperate for an electoral tie-up as he is convinced that TDP cannot take on the YSRCP tempest in next elections,” party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Monday.
At the national level parties like BJP, Trinamool Congress and Samajwadi Party at the All Party meeting had expressed apprehensions over the sincerity of Congress on the separate Telangana state and BJP floor leader Sushma Swaraj had reminded that there is not unity within the Congress on the issue and it will lead to only causing uproarious scenes.
“The summary of the meeting is that the Bill cannot be passed in the ensuing vote-on-account session as the national parties are not in a position to believe the sincerity of the Congress. It was YSR Congress that has taken the slogan of a united state first and our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has mobilized public opinion against the draft Bill by meeting leaders of national and regional parties and apprising them of the irregularities in the Bill and the undemocratic division of the State,” he said.
Krian Kumar Reddy who has been contending that the resolution he has moved rejecting the Bill will act as a deterrent for the creation of a separate state is a tall claim, though we welcome the end result. If he was that sincere he would have quit immediately after the CWC had taken the decision. On the contrary he was subservient to the Congress high command that is ardently in favour of division. He neither quits nor does the high command sacks him which raises many doubts about the sincerity from both sides.
Immediately after Congress has taken a decision on the splitting the state, YSRCP raised its voice and stood firmly for a united state. We have asked the chief minister to convene a special session to pass a resolution against the division but there was not response from Kiran Kumar Reddy who is now claiming to be a champion of united state.
He did not convene the Assembly, he made all arrangements for the Bill to have a safe passage into the Assembly and allowed a debate on it as well. Finally he emulated us and gave the same notice which we have given under rule 77 and it was carried by voice vote though the House had the required numbers to pass the resolution, he said.
Chandrbabu Naidu on his part is very desperate to have a tie-up with some other party or parties as he understood that TDP will be swept away in the YSRCP wave. He is in Delhi and he was there earlier and talked with national leaders but does not speak his mind out.
“It was the same Chandrababu Naidu who said that it was historic blunder to have a tie-up with BJP earlier. The duality in his own party was crystal clear during the assembly election and he will have no voice to speak out,” he said.
In the ensuing elections YSR Congress will win maximum seats in the Assembly and the Parliament and the question of dividing the state does not arise, he said.
When asked about the Rajya Sabha elections, he said, “Our party will not participate as we do not have the required numbers to field a candidate. We will not support any candidate.” INN
