Hyderabad: Slamming Rajahmundry MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar, for his baseless allegations and doublespeak on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, YSR Congress said that he has been parroting the tutored script and has been changing colours and tunes to suit the occasion. At a media conference, on Thursday party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu said, Arun Kumar "Contradicting his earlier statement that Jagan has no illegal assets, went on to say at his Rajahmundry meeting that Jagan is the richest MP which shows his doublespeak and the level to which he can stoop."
He said that Undavalli during his speech devoted more time on YSRCP as he is scared of the party and is jealous of Jagan. The so-called annual report which he presented at the meeting is full of allegations against YSR family members while he did not have any time to criticise TDP or the Margadarsi. He said, Arun Kumar had become popular only with the Margadarsi case but now he has no time to criticise the owner or the chit fund company nor the main opposition TDP. "Was there a compromise with the Margadarsi management as he did not utter a single word against the company," he said.
His statement that YSR's death was linked to Sonia Gandhi is incorrect. He had shown a slew of clippings during his speech and it would have been better if he had shown the clipping of who had said that Sonia Gandhi was responsible for YSR death. "At no point of time did we say that. We only expressed our apprehension and doubts that there could be a conspiracy angle to the air crash in which YSR died.
Arun Kumar himself confessed on various occasions that YSR was his mentor and if he takes the occasion of presenting the annual report to target YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, he certainly lacks morals, Rambabu added. If he chooses that platform to assess the assets, he should have also said about Robert Vadera and others. But that was not the case. He was only reading out from the script prepared elsewhere and is part of the game to defame YSR family members and level allegations against Jagan Mohan Reddy, Rambabu said.
His canards against YS Jaganmohan Reddy would cut no ice with the people who are determined to spell their mandate in the elections and the mischief of Undavalli is understood well by the people of his own constituency, he said. Meanwhile, TRS senior leader T Harish Rao accepted the challenge for an open debate on Telangana issue. Harish said that he was ready for a showdown whether it was in Rajahmundry or Hyderabad or for that matter a live discussion on a news channel.
Talking to reporters at Telangana Bhavan on Thursday, Harish alleged that Seemandhra leader was trying to provoke people of the region with his baseless and false statements. The TRS MLA charged Vundavalli of resorting to blackmailing tricks since Congress high command was in final stages of taking a decision on the long pending issue. There is no sanctity, conviction and truth in his statements, the TRS leader fumed. Playing video clips of Vundavalli's remarks on Telangana and Polavaram project, Harish pointed out that Congress MP had contradicted his own words.
