Hyderabad, February 6 : Taking serious objection to N Chandrababu Naidu’s remarks, YSR Congress has said that the party has full faith in the legal system and brushed aside his allegation that TDP is being pressed to move no trust move only to strike a deal with Congress.
“We have total faith in the legal system and Chandrababu’s remark that we are trying to threaten the judiciary is obnoxious. The TDP leader is known for his manipulative skills and has been taking recourse in stay orders and exploiting other legal provisions to his advantage,” Party Deputy floor leader Bhuma Sobha Nagi Reddy told reporters here on Wednesday.
We strongly condemn the remark he has passed which is filled with prejudice and affirm that we have full faith in the legal system and our prolonged battle in the courts further strengthens our belief, she said.
“On the other hand often repeated allegation that we are merging with Congress, I can only say why our leader should be in jail if we have any tie-up with Congress. It is TDP which has been having an understanding with Congress for mutual benefit. We have seen TDP MPs abstain from voting during the crucial voting on FDI in retail Bill and TDP leaders meeting Finance Minister P Chindambaram hours before Enforcement Directorate issuing attachment orders and these are but only a few instances of the TDP-Congress nexus, she said.
The charge that we are pushing TDP to move a no confidence motion to strike a deal with Congress is baseless as 18 MLAs supported the no confidence motion moved by TDP earlier only to vote against the Congress government. Chandrababu on the other hand, while moving the motion, allotted maximum time to criticize YSR and his family members instead of highlighting the government failures. Still we voted with TDP only to oppose Congress Government, she said.
When a government has lost its majority, as a responsible opposition leader a no confidence motion should be moved or at least Chandrababu Naidu should say that TDP is supporting the Congress and he will not topple the State Government which makes things clear. We have been demanding TDP to move the motion as it has the required numbers, she said.
Trade-offs have been the policy of Chandrababu Naidu, who has usurped TDP from NTR and was taking recourse in certain legal provisions and evading trial, she said adding that no court has given him a clean chit as he never faced prosecution and the clean image has been his self-proclaimed label.
What NTR said many years back has been recently repeated by Jaya Parada who said that Chandrababu Naidu know the art of use-and-throw in politics, Sobha Nagi Reddy said.
All during his padayatra, Naidu instead of highlighting state government’s failures has been repeatedly targeting YSR and his family members as he has a secret pact with Congress at the Centre and State. Congress and TDP have been working in tandem to keep YS Jagan Mohan Reddy away from people Naidu has been using padayatra for reasons other than its general definition, she said.
We strongly condemn the remarks of Naidu and reiterate that we have full faith in the legal system and there is no need to trade with Congress using no confidence as a plank as YSRCP is opposed to Congress, she said. INN
