Hyderabad, Feb.14: Calling upon the Employees’ Unions to rethink on “non-cooperation movement” from February 17 as it would affect the poor more, the PCC Chief, Mr D Srinivas, has said that the Chief Minister, Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy, had already requested the Unions to withdraw their decision on launching non-cooperation movement.
Speaking to the media after a meeting with the panel members appointed for participation in live discussion, interaction, analysis programmes of various TV Channels here on Monday, Mr Srinivas requested leaders of Employees’ Unions to rethink on the issue as non-cooperation movement would affect the daily wage workers severely.
Stating that moving no-confidence motion against the government in the Assembly was not easy, Mr Srinivas said there was a process for it and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi has no strength to move it. He also said that the Kiran Kumar Reddy government has the support of 183 members in the House including PRP, MIM and Independents. “I doubt their move may not be accepted by the Speaker because the TRS has only 11 members”, opined.
Referring to Tuition fees re-imbursement issue, the PCC Chief said that he met the Chief Minister in this regard and submitted a letter to him. He said that he conveyed to the Chief Minister that the party had taken a decision on fees reimbursement scheme and the students should not suffer due to delay in release of funds under the scheme.
Responding to the Telangana Congress MLAs’ trip to Delhi to pressurize the party high command on Telangana issue, Mr Srinivas said there was nothing wrong with their decision as they were making efforts for achievement of Telangana State. He also said that there was nothing wrong in Seemandhra leaders meeting the high command and discussing any issue. But speaking openly is a mistake, he opined.
The PCC president said that the party high command would initiate action against the former minister, Ms Konda Surekha, at an appropriate time. Disclosing that he had already sent a report against her activities, Mr Srinivas said it was up to the high command to take disciplinary action.
The PCC chief said that the party high command would take a decision on allotment of seats to the MIM in the forthcoming MLC elections. He refused to spell out on his candidature for the MLC elections.
Mr Srinivas revealed that the PCC was setting up a library to the members who were representing the party in the TV discussions. He said that the PCC would appoint a professional to give the required information asked by the members. He said that the members have to spend two to three hours in the library to study the issues to argue effectively. (NSS)
