D Chandra Bhaskar Rao tdp2Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party chief, N Chandrababu Naidu has drawn heavy flak for playing neutral on the no-trust move slapped by the TRS and YSRP combine on the Kiran Kumar Reddy government. But the party leadership has justified it's stand of neutrality as the right option at the moment. Political parties that backed the motion have been spitting fire at TDP for bailing out the government. The TRS as well as the YSRCP have attributed the defeat of the motion to a subtle understanding between the ruling party and the main opposition. The accusing fingers are pointed at the TDP chief saying that the party stand smacked of naked political opportunism. It manifested the lack of political conviction, rather than its commitment to the true spirit of neutrality.A The TDP sources, however, said that party leadership had sufficiently indicated its plan for moving a no- trust motion against the Kiran Kumar Reddy government towards the end of the budget session after ensuring effective floor coordination to corner the treasury benches. But the TRS and the YSRCP opted for the motion only to pre-empt the TDP move expecting the entire opposition to rally behind them. But it proved to be otherwise. When a political party seeks to move such a motion for the sake of its own political agenda, the final outcome cannot be different from this, they said. While the TRS sought to mount pressure on the Congress leadership for its T demand which was put again on the back burner, the YSRCP attempted to broker for peace with the Congress and ward off action against Y S Jaganmohan Reddy under the prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, averred Payyavula Keshav, politburo member. He stated that "nothing would prevent the TDP from moving another no -confidence motion against the Kiran Kumar Reddy government even tomorrow on any other issue concerning the people". The TRS motion achieved nothing more than engaging the House in an eight hour debate on the failures of the government. The same thing would have been possible while passing the thanks giving motion on Governor's address or even during debating the budget demands. By postponing the no -trust move by a couple of weeks, the opposition parties would have been able to work out a common strategy with effective floor coordination, felt the TDP leaders. The TDP, by its very ideology was always against the Congress and there was no question of the trusting the Kiran Kumar Reddy government at any point of time. It would take the right decision at right time to expose the government, said the party leaders Bojjala Gopala Krishnsa Reddy, Devineni Uma Maheswar Rao and Dhulipala Narendra. The TDP circles were happy with the floor management by the second line leadership of the party during the debate on the motion. With the party president, who had covered some 2,500 kilo metres as part of his ' Vastunna Meekosam Yatra', spending over five and half months in the midst of masses, the rank and file of party were hopeful of improving the electoral prospects. The party politburo is expected to decide in its next meeting on the disqualification of the members who had defied the party whip. Members who had voted for the motion were known dissidents and the party had no love last for them at all. Action against them is only a formality, said a senior leader.
