Leaders belonging to YSRCP are planning to quit the party due to the party’s anti-Telangana stance. The TDP leaders are also facing embarrassment due to letter written by Chandrababu Naidu to PM
Nizamabad: Congress leaders from the district have been claiming that they played a crucial role in convincing the party leaders in Delhi to make an announcement in favour of separate Telangana. A sense of uncertainty prevails among YSRCP and TDP leaders about their political prospects.
A couple of months ago, there were no serious efforts by the Congress leaders from Nizamabad district for participating in separate Telangana. But after announcement by the Congress Working Committee (CWC) about the Telangana formation (on July 30), the district leaders of the party have become too smart to boast that they made serious efforts to convince senior leaders in Delhi to announce Telangana.
After the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, at a press conference in Hyderabad, raised several concerns of Seemandhra people, the district leaders questioned his propriety in giving a statement in favour of one region being the Chief Minister. When former APCC president D Srinivas arrived at the town a couple of days ago, he was given a rousing welcome by the party activists and there was a massive bike rally to celebrate Telangana announcement. The MLC and former minister, who hails from the district (Srinivas), decried CM’s statements.
In a similar tone, another MLC and former minister Mohamed Ali Shabbir, also took objection to Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy’s apprehensions about the Seemandhra people. He (Shabbir Ali) too was given a warm welcome when he arrived at Kamareddy town. MP from Nizamabad Madhu Yashki also strongly condemned the CM on this count. Victory rallies were conducted by the Congress activists in Kamareddy and other towns.
Following these leaders, former Speaker K R Suresh Reddy is also planning to hold a public meeting at Armoor on August 12 (Monday) to celebrate the announcement of Telangana state.TRS district chief joins cong. TRS district president Aluri Ganga Reddy resigned from the party and joined Congress on Saturday. Some more leaders from TRS are likely to join Congress in a week or two.
Meanwhile, the leaders of YSRCP are in a dilemma to continue in the party. The district convener of the party Venkataramana Reddy had already resigned his post alleging discrimination by the party bosses. The party president and Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy resigned for his MP post while party’s honorary president Y S Vijayamma resigned for MLA post in protest against bifurcation.
The party leaders in Nizamabad are in a dilemma as they cannot claim that they are in favour of Telangana. Another leader from the district Bajireddy Govardhan who hails from Armoor town is in a state of confusion. Some other YSRCP leaders may quit the party in a couple days. With the latest development in the party, TDP leaders in the district are also in an embarrassing situation. TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, a few days ago, had written a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh raising the problems of the Seemandhra region after bifurcation.
This indicated that the party leadership is not in favour of bifurcation. Some of them are also planning to quit the party after waiting for some days.
