New Delhi: TRS MP K Kavita on Tuesday sharply criticised the Modi Government for resorting to an Ordinance to redraw the boundaries of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. She reiterated KCR’s demand that Prime Minister Narendra should convene the meeting of four Chief Ministers of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha and to evolve a consensus on the issue.
Participating in the debate on the Motion of Thanks to President’s Address in the Lok Sabha, Kavita said, “On the very first day of the Lok Sabha, the TRS and the BJD MPs had to protest. We did not feel good. But we were forced to do so.”
“Ordinance is not the norm that goes with democracy. For the first time, boundaries were sought to be altered through an Ordinance. Altering the boundaries after March 1 is only the prerogative of this House and it should be done in accordance with Article 3 of the Constitution,” she said.
Nearly 139 villages were given to Andhra Pradesh under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014. After that, through the Ordinance, seven mandals of Khammam district in Telangana were transferred to Andhra Pradesh.
Kavita expressed her disappointment that President Pranab Mukherjee did not congratulate the people of Telangana, which became the 29th State of the Indian Union.
With regard to Telangana, Kavita said, there were two faces she can never forget. One is KCR and the other is that of Sonia Gandhi. Without Sonia Gandhi, Telangana would not have been possible, she said.
Kavita also took the opportunity to thank External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for her support to Telangana. On the issue of 33 per cent reservation for women, she extended her support and expressed the hope that the Modi Government would implement it at the earliest.
