Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Telangana Forum Convener Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy on Saturday took the Telangana political JAC Chairman Prof. Kodandaram to task for saying that they would believe only those leaders who resigned to their political parties.
Speaking to the media here, Dr Nagam alleged that the political JAC is functioning like TRS action committee. He asked who was Prof Kodandaram to say that people of Telangana would believe only those leaders who resigned from their parties. He said that while the Seemandhra leaders were working in unison, the Telangana political leaders were not coming forward to work together. Prof. Kodandaram had earlier wanted all leaders to keep aside their party flags and party agenda and work for the cause of Telangana, but now he was saying that they would believe only if the leaders resigned from their political parties, he said,
He asked Prof Kodandaram to spell out what they should do after quitting the political parties. He also made it clear that if Prof Kodandaram makes other party leaders to quit, then they (TDP leaders) would also resign. The TRS president wants all other parties to go, except TRS; and Prof Kodandaram was supporting him.
Dr Nagam also questioned whether they could not carry on agitation remaining in their party. He made it clear that they would fight for Telangana with their white flag only till the end. He said that the proposed meeting at Pargi also would be held under the banner of Telangana flag. He said that if the TDP chief Mr N Chandrababu writes to the Union Home Minister in favour of separate Telangana, then only the TDP flag would find a place at their meeting.
He said that the T JAC and Telangana staff unions should work for the movement, but not to any political party. (NSS)
