Hyderabad: Maintaining that he would not join any other party, suspended Telugu Desam Party Telangana leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy on Thursday appealed to Telangana leaders to come forward to fight for the separate state on common platform leaving their differences aside.
Talking to media persons at Assembly Media Point, Mr Janardhan Reddy stated that the Telangana leaders should make united and cohesive efforts to achieve their common goal. “All of us must unite and come on one common platform to fight for Telangana,” he stated.
Mr Janardhan Reddy also made it clear that he would not join any other party, but would continue his fight for the separate state. “My agenda and my flag are for achieving Telangana,” he stated.
“If the Telangana leaders come forward on a common platform and create a political and Constitutional crisis, the Centre will be forced to take a decision on Telangana immediately,” he pointed out.
Mr Janardhan Reddy also warned the leaders not to remain indifferent to the aspirations of the people and risk being branded as `Telangana traitors’.
“If the leaders do not come forward to fulfil the regional aspirations on their own, the people will never forgive them and teach them a fitting lesson in the ensuing elections,” the suspended TDP leader stated.
He criticised both the Centre and Congress leaders for not showing their commitment towards resolving the Telangana issue.
“If the Telangana leaders convince Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu to declare that he is in favour of Telangana state formation, I am ready to rejoin TDP and fight along with party leaders from the region,” Mr Janardhan Reddy stated.(INN)
