YSRC to mobilize two trainloads of people to Delhi Dharna

0

TDP Chandrababu Naidu’s weakness is YSRC Jaganmohan Reddy ‘s strength. Sensing that the TDP is not able to wage a battle for special category status, YSR Congress wants to exploit it to become  the champion of the cause and mobilize people around the issue. As the TDP cabinet could not take a stand on the union planning minister Inderjit Singh’s assertion that they had no plan to accord special category status to any state, Jagan has given a call to his party workers to make the August 10 New Delhi Dhrana a grand success.in. It accused the TDP of setting aside the demand for special status for considerations. As the field is left open for opposition party, YSRCP is mobilizing two trainloads of party workers to Delhi for its Dharna.

“Two special trains will leave on August 7 from Anakapalle and Tirupati covering all the districts to ferry Party leaders and cadre to participate in the dharna and the March to Parliament on August 10 ,” party leader Botsa Satyanarayana said Saturday.

He said it was very evident from the tone and conduct of TDP Government that it was trading the Special Status issue for other considerations and was mortgaging the interests of people in Delhi for personal and political gains.

Party MPs, MLAs, MLCs and district level leaders will join the dharna, he added.

Taking objection to the tall claims of Chandrababu Naidu on his influence in conferring highest civilian award to Abdul Kalam, Botsa asked why the same influence did not work in the case of  TDP founder leader NTR.

YSR Congress will stage a dharna on August 10 at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to protest against the delay in according the Special category state status to Andhra Pradesh and to highlight the TDP Government’s indifference on the issue.

Party president and Opposition leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will lead the dharna  and a  march of party MPs, MLCs, MLAs, and other leaders, to the Parliament.

“Though our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has time and again brought the issue to the notice of the concerned authorities in Delhi there was no response and the State Government has been silent on the issue for reasons not known. Hence we have decided to hold a dharna in Delhi on August 10,” party leaders Pilli Subashchandra Bose and Jyothula Nehru announced  on Thursday.

The special status issue was raised by BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu, who wanted it to be extended to ten years and not five years, while the then Prime Minister Dr Man Mohan Singh has assured of special status. Our state can develop industrially and on other fronts only if the special status is accorded.

As the TDP government is not taking any initiative, we will pursue the matter by holding a dharna,” they said adding that perhaps Andhra Pradesh is the only State in the country which has no capital in its territory.

Earlier in the day, Jagan held a meeting with the party leaders and discussed the political developments in which the special status and the strategy for the ensuing assembly session were discussed, they said.
