Hyderabad, July 2 : Criticising TDP for trying to politicise the Uttakahad relief work, YSR Congress has said that the Leader of Opposition has been trying to cover up his laxity in attending to the people’s problems by making an issue out of the natural calamity.
“TDP leaders and N Chandrababu Naidu have been trying to eke out cheap publicity out of the gory tragedy at Uttarakhand only to divert the attention of the people as they failed in their duty of questioning the state government when it has been increasing the power charges, fertilizer prices and petroleum products,” Party leader Perni Nani told reporters here on Tuesday.
TDP leader Y Ramakrishnudu has been critical about the issue, though it is a fact that YSR Congress was the first to send a medical team to Uttarakhand for relief operations. Ramakrishnudu, being the leader of the Party in the Council instead of questioning the anti-people policies of the Congress has been resorting to cheap gimmicks, he said.
“All this shows that that TDP and Congress are afraid of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as YSRCP has been in the forefront and is getting wide public support,” he said.
On the remarks of senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh, he said “it is unbecoming of him to pass such comments like DNA. Country wide many people came out of Congress and had started separate parties due to difference of opinion.
Even Chandrababu Naidu was with Congress though switched sides for selfish reasons.
Digvijay Singh’s remarks on the politico-entrepreneurial status of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy are uncalled for. There are many politicians who have business houses and vice versa. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had to plunge into active politics only after the death of his father and started the party when things were clear that there was no room in Congress Party to carry out the ideology of YSR,” he said.
On Telangana, he said the Party stand was clearly told to the Centre and there is no change on the issue. INN
