Hyderabad: Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s strong plea for keeping the State united on Friday has come in for sharp criticism from within the party as well as the opposition, and all of them demanded the dismissal of the Chief Minister. Deputy Chief Minister D Rajanarsimha on Saturday made scathing remarks against the Chief Minister. Calling him a “Sealed cover CM,” Rajanarsimha said it would not make any difference, whether Kiran continued in office or not.
He said Kiran should first try to know the history of T movement before speaking. Kiran had gone to Delhi stealthily and lobbied for the CM post, he alleged. Congress leaders like Palvai Govardhan Reddy, Shabbir Ali, Ministers D Sridhar Babu and K Jana Reddy also took strong exception to Kiran’s statements. Jana Reddy said it was not proper on the part of Kiran to reflect the views of only one region. He should present the problems of all the regions. He said all problems would be resolved if the state was divided. Palvai said that he had sent the clippings of both English and vernacular dailies which had carried the comments of Kiran at the press conference on Friday.
He demanded that Kiran be sacked and President’s rule be imposed so that there could be a smooth transition. Shabbir Ali too took strong exception to the manner in which Kiran pitched for the united state. He said Kiran should abide by the decision of the party high command or else he should decide on his next course of action.
Kiran should know that all those who left the party had gone into oblivion. TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao felt that the Congress high command should take a serious note of Kiran Kumar's rebellion and dismiss him forthwith. Telangana should be created immediately even by imposing President's rule in the state," Rao said. TRS secretary-general K Keshava Rao said that Kiran Kumar Reddy had lost the right to continue as Chief Minister of the state for openly defying the Congress leadership on Telangana issue.
MP G Vivek demanded the arrest of the Chief Minister under PD Act for his provocative speech, which could fuel tensions between peoples of both regions Sircilla legislator K Tarakarama Rao was highly critical of the Chief Minister for his anti-Telangana stand. Besides Kiran Reddy, Chandrababu Naidu, YS Jaganmohan Reddy and Botcha Satyanarayana are vying for ‘champions trophy’ in Seemandhra region Making a strong pitch yet again for keeping Andhra Pradesh united, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy last night categorically asked the union government not to go ahead with the (proposed) bifurcation without addressing people's concern over issues like water-sharing, employment, education and Hyderabad, among others.
Information and Public Relations Minister D K Aruna, in a statement, came down heavily on the Chief Minister saying his claims on the state division issue were reprehensible. "The Chief Minister cannot act unilaterally. Everyone should honour the Congress high command's decision to create Telangana state," she added. TDP leader E Dayakar Rao said that Kiran was making false claims and was provoking people of the two regions of the state.
