Hyderabad: A visibly upset YS Jaganmohan Reddy called for a 72-hour shutdown starting Friday morning in protest against the Union Cabinet’s decision to bifurcate the state. Interacting with the media soon after the news of Cabinet broke out, he lambasted the decision saying that it was taken against the wishes of crores of people of Seemandhra region.

“Andhra Pradesh was formed as a result of sacrifices of many stalwarts. That great effort has now been watered down just for the sake of few votes and seats” he stated. “This is a most painful day in my life. I have never experienced the kind of pain and anguish during my 16-month long incarceration in jail. I question whether these people are humans at all? Congress and TDP colluded with each other to divide the State. Both will go down into history as characterless parties, which played with the lives of crores of people” he castigated.

Questioning why the methodology of seeking the approval of State Assembly was not followed, Jagan said- “It was done when Andhra Pradesh was formed. When during the carving out of three states- Chattisgarh, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand, the nod of the respective state Assemblies were taken beforehand. Even Mr Chidambaram, during his first announcement on Telangana state on December 9, stated that the Assembly resolution would be obtained first. I ask the Congress leadership why this path was ignored?”

Jagan felt that creation of constitutional crisis alone can stop this unjust decision. “We can create such crisis only through resigning to our posts enmasse. I urge all ministers who could not stop the bifurcation, all the MLAs of all parties to submit the resignations immediately” he stressed. He has also announced that YSRCP would knock the doors of Courts to block the process of division. “I resigned along with my party MP Mekapati Rajamohana Reddy and we sent reminders to Meira Kumar, Lok Sabha speker for acceptance. My party MLAs have also been pressing for acceptance of resignations. If other parties too follow suit, the crisis will be created” he said. Jagan did not want to take any more questions from media, stating that he was greatly disturbed over the decision.
