Hyderabad, April 17 : Demanding that the YSR Congress Party Chief, Mr Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, make his stand clear on the Telangana issue before the Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula Assembly by-elections, the Telangana Congress MPs have made it clear that they would not keep quiet if Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy hoisted his party flag in the Telangana region without a clarity on the issue. They said that the three leaders, who were contesting from Kadapa Lok Sabha seat, were integrationists and added that the Kadapa people would cast their votes if any Telangana leader participated in the Kadapa by-elections.
Speaking to the media after their meeting at Dilkusha Guest House here on Sunday, the MPs said that Mr Jagan had carried a placard in support of ‘Samaikyandhra’ in Parliament and urged the Telangana people not to allow Mr Jagan Party’s flag in the region.
The Warangal MP, Mr S Rajaiah, demanded that the Chief Minister and the State government withdraw the G.O No. 177 completely and asked as to why the government brought a new G.O as already there was a code of conduct (1964) for employees. “It is nothing but provoking the employees who are participating in Telangana movement and to suppress the movement”.
The Peddapalli MP, Mr G Vivek, said that the State Intelligence was sending false reports to the Centre and demanded that the State and Centre not to appeal against the High Court judgment on Justice Srikrishna Committee’s eighth chapter. Demanding that the Centre initiate steps to create separate State, he said that people were getting all information through the RTI Act and it was not correct for the Centre to keep the eighth chapter secret.
The Karimnagar MP, Mr Ponnam Prabhakar, said that the people of Telangana were in favor of Telangana State and added that no body has asked Mr Y S Jagan’s stand on Telangana issue and everybody knows his stand as he had carried ‘Samaikyandhra’ placard in Parliament earlier.
The Nalgonda MP, Mr Gutha Sukhender Reddy, demanded that the Centre make the eighth chapter public because there were no rules framed when the Committee was appointed. It was bad that the Seemandhra leaders were arguing that the judge, who delivered judgment against the Centre on the eighth chapter of the Justice Srikrishna Committee, belonged to Telangana region and delivered such a judgment, Mr Gutha said, adding that it was unfortunate to argue like that. He said that it was nothing but lowering the judicial system. He demanded that the State and Centre not to appeal in the upper court on the judgment of High Court. It was not correct to the Seemandhra TDP leaders to write letters to the Centre on the High Court judge who delivered judgment on eighth chapter. (NSS)
