Hyderabad: Former minister and senior Congress leader Jeevan Reddy on Monday accused the state and Central government of attempting to divert attention from the separate Telangana demand by conducting recruitment examinations for the posts of Sub-Inspectors of Police without deleting the controversial Clause 14 (F) from the Presidential Order.
Talking to media persons at the Assembly Media Point, Mr Jeevan Reddy pointed out that the state Assembly had passed a resolution, demanding that the Centre delete the controversial Clause from the Presidential Order.
However, the matter has been kept in abeyance and the government has now issued a notification to conduct the examination for the recruitment of Sub Inspectors, Mr Jeevan Reddy pointed out.
“This is nothing but an attempt to divert the attention of the people from the separate Telangana demand,” he alleged.
The former minister demanded that the Centre either delete the controversial clause or stop the recruitment examination.
Turning his attention to threats of resignation by some Congress leaders, Mr Jeevan Reddy told them not to talk but act. “You tender your resignations and that would automatically help in formation of Telangana,” he said.
Reacting to the news that Central Forces are about to be deployed in Telangana, the senior leader said that the people of Telangana are neither scared nor worried about the deployment.(INN)
