Hyderabad, June 13 : Terming as eye-wash, the TDP’s proposed no-confidence motion against Speaker, YSR Congress has said the main opposition party has been resorting to theatrics only to make its presence felt and it was always shielding the Congress government even at very crucial and precarious situations.
“TDP leaders commenting that they will move a no-trust vote against the Speaker speaks of the Party’s shallowness and Chandrababu Naidu skipping better part of the two phases of budget sessions shows that he and his party have scant faith in parliamentary democracy,” party senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy told reporters here on Thursday.
The main opposition party too has an equal responsibility in the smooth conduct of the assembly proceedings and Chandrababu Naidu shirking responsibility and boasting of a no-confidence motion against the Speaker shows the evasiveness of TDP.
“Had the Party been so sincere, it would have joined the other opposition parties when they moved the no-trust move and unsettle the State Government. Even on earlier occasion, TDP moved the no confidence motion only after PRP merged with Congress and ensured that the government had the required numbers,” he said.
It is not just Speaker who is accountable for the conduct of the house proceedings but the main opposition party also has a responsibility to shoulder. It dodged its duty and started blaming the Chair only to show off that TDP is against the Government. This act is just an eye-wash and carries no conviction with it, he said.
When asked about the emerging Third Front, he said, we have to wait and see. The role of regional parties has increased and they will play a key role in the formation of government at the centre.
“Depending on the situation and keeping the interests of state and the nation in view, we will take a decision to safeguard the secular fabric of the country,” he said. Without going into details on the developments in BJP, he said; “it is obvious that there is a power struggle going on in the Party. As political observers we are closely watching the national developments.”
Reiterating that the Party is gearing up for the local body polls, he said that regional conferences will be held at Tirupati, covering Ralayalseema region and Nellore district, Vizianagaram for the north coastal Andhra districts and at Vijayawada for the southern coastal districts. Conferences would also be held in Telangana districts and the dates will be announced soon, he said.
Refusing to comment on the reported remarks of Rajesh, former MLA, he said “it is not our policy to encourage physical attacks. We believe in peaceful functioning and democratic values.” INN
