Hyderabad: CPI National Secretary Dr Narayana sees that as far as the YSRCP remains as the main opposition party there would not be any problem for the ruling TDP government in the state. Taking party in the ongoing party’s National Executive Meeting at Guntur, the CPI leader said that as a matter of fact the YSRCP Chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has been providing the much-needed oxygen to the ruling TDP government, despite it has been committing several mistakes.
Lashing at the TDP and YSRCP the CPI leaders who are longing to regain a space for itself in the new capital region dismissed that Andhra Pradesh chief minister is a changed person as it has been tried to project in some quarters. Both Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Pradesh have been destroying the state by showing favors to the corporate at the cost of common man. Taking a dig at the TDP MPs walking out of a meeting convened by the General Manage of the South Central Railway, they questioned whether they have the courage to walk out from a meeting convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in protest against not fulfilling the promise of giving special status to Andhra Pradesh. Reiterating that CPI would fight for special status to Andhra Pradesh in the Parliament, the CPI leaders said that had the members of the party were elected to the state legislature they could have fought for the people’s issues.
Criticizing the YSRCP, Party State Secretary said, “the suspended YSRCP MLA laughs in a TV programme Jabardast, hurls abuses in the Assembly and cries in front of television cameras,” and this way both the party’s are fighting to address the people’s issues. Hhe said that the YSRCP chief meeting former Congress MP and prominent film director Dasari Narayana Rao at best could be termed only a “reunion of jail birds.”
