PCC chief Raghuveera Reddy slams YSRCP for extending support to NDA Presidential candidate

He wondered why YSRC announced support to NDA nominee even before the name of the candidate was revealed. He said that already 17 parties have extended their support to Meira Kumar. “If TDP and YSRC withdraws support to NDA, its candidate would not elect for the highest position,” he said.

The PCC president in his note said that both TDand YSRC did not put any condition to NDA for giving support its candidate. Raghuveerafelt that they should at least have demanded the Central government for special status.

He also flayed YSRC for using YS Rajasekhar Reddy photo. He recalled that YS Rajasekhar Reddy fought for strengthening secular forces but YSRC was supporting communal forces. “The followers of Rajasekhar Reddy are not in a position to accept the decision of Jagan to supporting the BJP candidate,” he said.

He added that the sections of Dalits and Muslims are supporting Congress party when BJP has been continuing attacks on them for the last three years. “UPA’s candidate is real representative of such downtrodden section,” he said and asked Jagan to change his stance and support the UPA candidate.
