Hyderabad: In a move to intensify the agitation against bifurcation of the state, the YSR Congress party has decided to hold a sit-in protest in front of the camp office of the Chief Minister on Friday, demanding that he convene the Assembly session to pass a resolution that the state be kept united.
A delegation led by party chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy called on Governor ESL Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan on Thursday and submitted a memorandum for the second time demanding that the Assembly session be convened.
Later speaking to media persons, Jagan said that the misfortune of the State was that both the Chief Minister and the TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu were diluting the Seemandhra agitation. He said if the process of bifurcation was not stopped, Kuppam to Srikakulam would turn into a desert. He said every child will hold Kiran and Naidu responsible for having ruined their future and career. Both these leaders should open their eyes and fight to keep the state united or else they will go down the history as betrayers, he said.
Alleging that Congress and TDP were hand in glove, he said while Naidu was holding an indefinite fast in New Delhi demanding bifurcation of the State, Kiran was holding meetings with employees and persuading them to call off the agitation.
The central ministers and MPs who had been claiming that they would stop the process of bifurcation and would force the Centre to take a U turn once again had now chickened out and were talking in terms of package for the Seemandhra region, he said.
He said YSRCP was of the firm opinion that if the Assembly passes a resolution opposing bifurcation, then there was every possibility to stall the process. He said it was with this intention, his party had asked for Assembly session earlier also.
While trying to put pressure on the government to convene the Assembly session, he said, the YSRCP would hold Samaikya Sankharavam in Hyderabad on October 26. He said integrationists from all the three regions including Telangana would participate in the meeting. To a query, he said there was no question of going back on the issue of his resignation from the Lok Sabha. Jagan said MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy would meet the Speaker Meira Kumar and urge her on his behalf to accept the resignation. Jagan said he would write a letter to her explaining why he wanted to resign and insist that she accede to his request.
