Hyderabad, Feb 22: Alleging that the Assembly has turned into a ‘Rachchabanda’, the CPI Legislature Party has said that it would fight against the government until the Centre introduced a Bill on Telangana in Parliament.
Speaking at the Assembly media point on Tuesday after the adjournment of the House, the CPI floor leader, Mr G Mallesh, said that the State government was behaving innocent as if it doesn’t know anything about the ongoing agitation on Telangana. The ruling party was not responding to the adjournment motion of the CPI, he said, adding that the government was not bothered about the protests of the Opposition parties on Telangana issue for the last four days. He said that the government was not ready for a discussion on a boiling issue like Telangana and was trying to deceive the people once again.
Reminding first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s comment on Telangana issue, Mr Mallesh said that the Congress rulers were not in a position to concentrate on their leader’s statement on Telangana. Finding fault with the Telangana Congress MLAs and MPs for not responding on Telangana issue, he said that they were not responding but were making statements when the time was not appropriate. The Telangana Congress MLAs were not in a position to move a resolution on Telangana, he added.
Finding fault with the Chief Minister, Mr N Kiran Kumar Reddy, for mentioning Rachchabanda programme during his reply on Governor’s speech, Mr Mallesh said that the government was “shamelessly” behaving even though the Assembly became a “Rachchabanda”.
Alleging that the functioning of the government remained paralyzed in the State, the CPI deputy floor leader, Mr K Sambasiva Rao, said that the situation in the State reminded him of the days of undeclared Emergency and undeclared President’s rule. Demanding that the Chief Minister reveal the Congress party’s stand on Telangana issue, he said that it was not proper to the Prime Minister and Chief Minister to remain silent on Telangana. (NSS)
