Hyderabad: Referring to the Chief Minister Mr N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s assertion that the Government was fully prepared to face no-confidence motion, the opposition TDP today dared him to convene a special session of the Legislative Assembly, if he has the guts, to face the no-trust motion.
In a statement to the media here, TDP senior leader Mr Yanamala Ramakrishnudu has said that the party has decided in its Mahanadu to move a no-trust motion as the Government was steeped in corruption, neglected the farmers welfare, imposed cuts in welfare programmes and became anti-people.
He demanded the other parties –TRS, BJP, PRP and YSR Congress to declare their stand on the no-trust motion. He wanted Mr YS Jaganmohan Reddy to release the names of MLAs supporting him. Referring to Mr Jagan’s statement that he enjoyed the support of 60 – 70 MLAs, Mr Yanamala questioned that if that was the case, why Mr Jagan was shivering to parade his supporter MLAs before the Governor. He also demanded Mr Jagan to say whether it was not YSR Congress party that was saving the Government.
He said that the Mahanadu has demanded the Centre to take a decision on the sensitive Telangana issue, as the delay was causing irreparable damage to the State.
Mr Ramakrishnudu said that the discussions on the Lokpal Bill indicate that the Centre wants to exclude the Prime Minister and some other important persons from the purview of the Bill, and this was against Democratic principles.
