Hyderabad: The PCC Chief, Mr D Srinivas, has said that the Deputy Speaker’s action against the four erring MLAs was more important than taking action by the party. He clarified that the PCC has no right to initiate action against MLAs but only sends reports to the Party high command.
Speaking to mediapersons informally at Gandhi Bhavan on Thursday, Mr Srinivas said that there was no link between initiating action against the MLAs and the results of Kadapa and Pulivendula bye-elections. He said that organising rededication meeting of the government on the occasion of completion of two years depends on the Chief Minister and not on the party. He also said that last year’s rededication meeting was cancelled due to heavy rains in the State.
The PCC chief said that the Party would conduct organisational elections after the Kadapa bye-election results. He opined that all the leaders, who were indulging in anti-party activities would be filtered. The organizational elections were postponed several times due to different reasons, he said and made it clear that there was no lack of coordination between him and the Chief Minister. He also said that there were no problems between them. He said that every one had worked for the party in the Kadapa bye-elections as it was a collective responsibility whatever may be the result.
Mr Srinivas said that the Praja Rajyam Party president, Mr Chiranjeevi, met the Central leaders to discuss on his party’s merger meeting. He opined that the meeting may be held on a grand scale if there was time. “The function would be a small if it conducted hurriedly” he added.
The PCC Chief felt that lands of farmers should not be taken over without their willingness wherever it may be and added that the government has to give them “consent award” in case their land taken over. (NSS)
