Telangana cause’ seems to have failed to bring various political parties on a single platform. Despite resigning from their MLA posts, various political party leaders are now engaged in fight for one-upmanship.
Telangana Telugu Desam Forum convenor and MLA E Dayakar Rao on Wednesday said Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao failed to protect Telangana interest.
”When he founded the party KCR had said he would act like a watchdog of Telangana. But where was he and what was he doing when YS Rajasekhara Reddy sold off Telangana land,” he asked.
Land allocations made by former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy is under fire with the Andhra Pradesh High Court directing CBI to submit within two weeks a preliminary report into allegations that YSR’s son Jagan ‘amassed public money’ during his father’s time and violated law.
The high court had ordered CBI probe while hearing three writ petitions. The petitioners alleged that Jagan acquired huge assets from various companies and individuals as a quid pro quo for the land allotted to them at cheap prices for various activities when his father was the chief minister between 2004 and 2009.
Telugu Desam Party legislators from the region had decided to undertake a week-long ‘Palle Palleku TDP’ (TDP to villages) programme from July 25. They had also met Assembly Speaker N Manohar on Monday and requested him to accept their resignations.
Over 100 legislators from various political parties including leading Congress had submitted their resignations to the speaker. The Speaker, however, is yet to take a decision in this regard.
Meanwhile, many legislators from Seemandhra region are also intensifying their agitation for ‘United Andhra Pradesh.’ TDP MLA P Keshav from Rayalaseema said they are ready to lay down their lives or turn into human bombs to keep AP united. Economic Times
