Hyderabad: Health Minister D L Ravindra Reddy on Saturday challenged the MLAs those who are supporting YSR Congress part, to submit their resignation instead of threatening the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy.
Talking to media persons at Gandhi Bhavan, D L Ravindra Reddy said the MLAs instead of issuing veiled threats can submit resignations to their posts and contest and win the by-polls. Stating that the Congress party did not came to power for the second time in the state due to efforts of former chief minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, he said the party won the elections due to the leadership qualities of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her people-friendly policies.
Refuting the Jagan’s group statement that Congress party came to power in the state due to YSR’s efforts, he asked as to why it has not come to power in 1994 and 1999 when YSR was Pradesh Congress Committee president that time.
Responding to YS Jagan group planning for Bus Yatra over the CBI raids on Jagan’s offices and residence among people, Ravindra Reddy asked what they would tell people that the companies floated by Jagan are not his or companies invested in Jagan are not their money.
He also rubbished the allegations that Sonia Gandhi’s political advisor Ahmed Patel was involved in Jagan’s corruption deals. He advised the CBI sleuths to go Mauritius to continue their probe as Jagan companies spread abroad. (INN)
