Hyderabad: Calling Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and Telugu Desam Party president Chandrababu Naidu as coverts of Congress Party chief Sonia Gandhi working for bifurcation of the state, YSR Congress party stated that both Congress and TDP leaders are making baseless allegations against party chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy out of pure frustration unable to withstand the success of Samaikya Sankharavam public meeting.
Addressing media persons here, party MLA and spokesman G Srikanth Reddy said that both Kiran Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu are covertly cooperating with the Congress high command in facilitating smooth bifurcation of the state. “We understand that Kiran Kumar accepted the position of CM by agreeing to the party high command’s condition that he will cooperate with the bifurcation of the state,” he said.
Srikanth Reddy asked Kiran Kumar Reddy to convene the assembly at least now on the AP Formation Day on Nov 1 to adopt a resolution in favour of keeping the state untied and prove his pro-united AP stand. Similarly, Chandrababu Naidu also should withdraw his support letter given for bifurcating the state.
Asserting that YS Jaganmohan Reddy is the only leader who stood his ground for keeping the state untied from the very beginning, Srikanth Reddy said APNGOs and others played their role well in the Samaikyandhra agitation after the July 30 decision of the CWC. “However, Kiran and Naidu failed to reflect the aspirations of the Seemandhra people and are only enacting dramas to hoodwink them,” he alleged, accusing Kiran of dousing the flames of Seemandhra agitation.
“If Kiran really wanted to keep AP united, he should have resigned immediately after the CWC decision. But, till date, he is sticking to his post and signing files. It is shameful to think of Kiran and Naidu,” he remarked. Reacting to the allegations of Congress MP Lagadapati and former Minister JC Diwakar Reddy, he said they are making false allegations and throwing mud on Jaganmohan Reddy only to secure their political future.
