Mahabubnagar: The national CPI leader, Mr Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, here on Wednesday, expressed doubts whether the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre was functioning or not. He felt that the inertia in the Union government was very unfortunate development.
Speaking to mediapersons here, the CPI senior leader said that he has not seen such a worst and incompetent government at the Centre after the country achieved freedom in 1947.
Mr Reddy observed that it was not proper for the Congress government to put the Telangana issue in cold storage on pretext that there were differences of opinion among political parties on State bifurcation. He also ridiculed the Centre’s stand that unanimity was inevitable on carving out separate Telangana State even after knowing that there were differences among the Telugu Desam and Congress party leaders.
He also criticized the Union ministers, Mr P Chidambaram and Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad, saying that they were not behaving properly over the Telangana issue. Pointing out that the CPI had passed resolutions in favour of separate Telangana State in its national conventions, Mr Reddy once again made it clear that the CPI members would support Telangana Bill whenever it was presented in Parliament.
