Former YSR Congress Party leaders of Telangana region Jitta Bala Krishna Reddy and K K Mahender Reddy have questioned the party’s honorary president Vijayamma and president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy whether they meant that State should not be bifurcated when they advocate equal justice to all the regions.
Speaking to the media here on Sunday, they also questioned the two whether they forgot that late Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy had entered into an electoral alliance with the TRS in 2004. They said it was not proper to change stand on daily basis for political gains and alleged that Vijayamma and Jagan were adopting dual attitude with regard to State bifurcation. “Is changing your stand everyday your trustworthiness”, they questioned. They also asked the Telangana leaders to quit the party if they have any shame or self-respect. Advising Vijayamma and her son not to create confusion in the name of Samaikyandhra movement, they said the movement was stirred up by capitalists.
Mahender Reddy and Bala Krishna Reddy said the Telangana movement was born from the people, in sharp contrast with the Seemandhra movement. They also condemned the attack on Congress MP V Hanumanta Rao in Tirupati. They said right from resignations to Vijayamma’s scheduled fast on Monday, the entire activity was sheer drama. They charged that the party was cheating both the regions.
