Hyderabad: Condemning the YSR Congress Party spokesperson, Mr Ambati Rambabu’s remarks against the AICC Chief, Ms Sonia Gandhi, the AICC secretary and resigned MLC, Mr Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy, has demanded that the former tender a public apology to Ms Sonia Gandhi.
Speaking to the media at CLP office here on Friday, along with Telangana Congress resigned MLA, Mr Gandra Venkata Ramana Reddy, Mr Ponguleti said the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had clearly mentioned in his report that the copter carrying Dr YSR and his entourage had crashed due to bad whether and there was no conspiracy behind the accident. He also demanded that Mr Ambati come forward with evidence if any regarding the allegations against Ms Sonia Gandhi. It was not proper to say that she and a multi-national company had masterminded killing of Dr YSR. He warned Mr Ambati not to speak as he wished against Ms Sonia Gandhi. Stating that Mr Ambati and the Vijayawada MP, Mr Lagadapati Rajagopal, quarrel themselves, he warned them not to speak lies to sidetrack the Telangana issue.
Stating that the Congress cadre would not tolerate if Mr Ambati speaks as he wished in future, Mr Ponguleti demanded the former to tender public apology to Ms Sonia Gandhi immediately. Defending the AICC general secretary, Mr Rahul Gandhi’s statement regarding Mumbai blasts, Mr Ponguleti said it was not proper to the BJP and Shiv Sena to criticize the former for speaking facts. He said the Congress was fighting against terrorism and communalism effectively and it was not correct to criticize Mr Rahul Gandhi on the basis of rumors. Punishing undertrial Pakistan terrorist Kasab was delayed due to judicial process, he condemned rumors spreading in Mumbai and other places that the latest bomb blasts were a birth day gift to Kasab.
