Hyderabad, June 10 : YSR Congress Party honorary president Y. S. Vijayamma on Monday strongly objected to the method employed in the disqualification of 15 MLAs-9 of Congress and 6 of TDP-for violating the whip of their respective parties during the no-trust motion.
Speaking to reporters before leading a rally of party MLAs from Ambedkar statue on Tank Bund to the assembly for attending the first day of its renewed budget session, she faulted the way the MLAs were disqualified.
“The whole scheme of disqualification seems to be aimed at avoiding by-elections and saving the Government from further embarrassing situations,” she remarked, adding that the Congress is worried of losing the by- polls if held.
When asked on the MLAs carrying the India Today copies that showed images of Chandrababu Naidu and Kiran Kumar for its cover page story Secret Friends, Vijayamma said their friendship is well known to people.
“Both Chandrababu and Kiran Kumar have been together from Kadapa by-polls to MLCs polls to the appointment of information commissioners and to the support TDP has extended to the UPA on the FDA bill,” she said, adding people are in the know of all these things.
Vijayamma reiterated her charge that the Government has been imposing additional financial burden on the people with new taxes and hiking the power and other charges only with the support of Chandrababu Naidu.
“People are in the know of things that Chandrababu and CM Kiran Kumar have had a political fixing. Chandrababu had once introduced no-trust motion in the assembly after the PRP had merged with the Congress and now, he is thinking of introducing no-confidence motion following the disqualification of 15 MLAs,” she said, adding Naidu has been doing it all to save the Government as part of the conspiracy against YSRCP Chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
What more proof do you need to say they have entered into a political fixing, she asked. Vijayamma indicated that the YSRCP MLAs would question the Government in the assembly for abdicating people’s welfare and its lackadaisical approach towards people’s problems. INN
