Hyderabad: The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) has deplored the statement of the YSR Congress Party Chief, Mr Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, that he would join hands with the BJP if it was agreeable to give 10 per cent reservation to the Muslims across the nation.
Speaking to the media at the CLP office here on Thursday along with the Whip, Mr Kondru Murali and MLC, Mr Rudraraju Padmaraju, the Government Chief Whip, Mr Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, said that Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy has shown his true colors by declaring that he would join hands with the BJP. Joining hands with the BJP, which follows and implements ‘Manu dharma’, was nothing but deceiving the Backward and Minority classes people, he alleged.
He said that the BJP has the history of making its leader, Mr Arun Shouri write the book titled “Worshipping of False Gods’, which was aimed against Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar, who authored the Constitution.
Mr Bhatti also alleged that Mr Jagan’s statement on joining hands with the BJP was nothing but suppressing the Backward Classes people, who were trying to live with self-respect. Condemning Mr Jagan’s statement, he said that he was showing his true colors.
Responding to a query, Mr Vikramarka said that the State government allotted land to Mr Gali Janardhan Reddy expecting faster development of the State. However, the government has started the process of taking back of land allotted to him, he added.
Asked about Ms Konda Surekha’s decision to challenge CLP’s disqualification complaint with the Deputy Speaker in the court, he said that the CLP submitted all evidence to the Speaker against her.
Responding to a query, Mr Vikramarka said that the Congress would stand in first place in Kadapa by-election. (NSS)
