Vijayamma’s indefinite hunger strike enters second day
Guntur: YSR Congress Party leader Dadi Veerabhadra Rao here on Tuesday asked the Telugu Desam chief N Chandrababu Naidu to withdraw the letter given to the UPA government in favour of division of the State.
Addressing the people at the indefinite hunger strike camp of the party honorary president Y S Vijayamma on the second day, Veerabhadra Rao blamed the TD chief for the present political imbroglio and wanted the former Chief Minister to withdraw the letter and tender open apology for his failure to assess the sentiments of the people.
He said that Chandrababu Naidu with his vast experience in administration had failed to assess the pulse of the people in the event of the division of the State. He found fault with the TD chief for sending a letter to the UPA government in favour of division of the State, which had helped the ruling Congress to take a decision in favour of the party.
The YSR Congress leader found fault with the TD chief for supporting the demand for division of the State and thus responsible for the political unrest in the State. He also asked the TD chief why he was allowing his party leaders now to launch agitations for Samaikyandhra without withdrawing the Telangana letter.
Veerabhadra Rao asserted that the YSR Congress had taken a clear stand on the division of the State and had left the issue to the UPA. However, he asserted that the YSR Congress had also cautioned the UPA against doing injustice to any region while dividing the State.
Stating that the UPA had failed to protect the interests of the Seemandhra people while giving Telangana, the YSR Congress shouldered the responsibility of fighting for their cause and thanked Vijayamma for launching the indefinite hunger strike. He appealed to the people of Seemandhra to give their support to Vijayamma’s hunger strike and ensure that justice was done to Seemandhra people.
Meanwhile, people continued to visit the camp for the second day on Tuesday as Vijayamma continued her deeksha. Women in large numbers reached the venue to have a look at Vijayamma and extend their support to her hunger strike.
