- Cong has no moral right to divide State
- Sharmila lambasts ‘conspiracy’
Chittoor: The YSRCP leader Sharmila has alleged that the Congress party has chosen to divide the State for political gains, particularly during the next general election. At a public meeting here on Tuesday, Sharmila observed that during YSR rule there was no political uncertainty and unrest in the State. Administration was satisfactory; there was no rise in prices of essential commodities and the people of Telangana and Seemandhra never fought each other.
The current issues had gained momentum with the submission of letter by TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu in favour of Telangana, she claimed. Whatever be the consequences and required sacrifices, the YSRCP was firmly for Samaikyandhra and would remain with the people till the aspirations of the people of Seemandhra were fulfilled, she stressed.
Having failed to do justice to both the regions, does the Congress have a moral right to divide the State, she asked. After the death of YSR, all welfare schemes introduced by him had been diluted, depriving the poor of their livelihood opportunities, she said.
The ‘conspiracy’ of the Congress and the TRS to divide the State had surfaced; she observed and asserted that the future of Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra would be impacted by the creation of Telangana. The building of a new capital for Seemandhra region would not be an easy task if Hyderabad city became part of Telangana state, she mentioned. None from Seemandhra region could digest the absence of Hyderabad city, she said.
What was the purpose of the Bus Yatra of TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, considering he had given a letter favouring the creation of Telangana state, she questioned. Nowhere in India could one witness the collusion of ruling party and opposition party, except in Andhra Pradesh, she observed.
She later addressed another public meeting in Madanapalle. It may be recalled that she began the ‘Samaikya Sankharavam’ in Tirupati on Monday evening after it was formally launched at her father’s memorial in Idupulapaya. She resumed her journey after overnight stay at Tirupati. She will enter Anantapur district on Wednesday. She will address a meeting in the morning at Kadiri and another one at Anantapur in the evening.
