YSRC: TDP’s Noise on Sec.8 is Drama


[dropcap] Y[/dropcap]SR Congress rapped TDP for trying to divert the attention of the people to cover up its role in cash-for-vote scam by selectively popping up the provisions of the State Reorganisation Act as serious issue.

The party said the hullabaloo about section-8 of the act by TDP was meaning less as it had been in force ever since  bifurcation bill  got presidential assent.

Party MLA Rajendranath Reddy said there were more important issues than section 8 to fight for and to exert pressure on union government.

“Along with Section 8 there are other provisions like the Special Status, funds for Polavaram, assurance to de-notify degraded forest land for building the capital city, which are all in force from the appointed date June 2, 2014 but TDP is bring up non issues one after the other as a diversionary tactic,” he said.

He wondered as to why TDP had been silent on the issue like polavaram.

The Rs 100 crore allocated to Polavaram by the Centre is only to set up the Project Authority and the State Government is silent on the issue, even though there has been no funding for the project, he added.

“The TDP has not consulted any of the political parties to put collective effort on the implementation of the provisions of Act. It has been governing in a dictatorial manner eschewing democratic practices,” he said.

Stating that invoking Section 8 does not arise as it is already in force, Reddy said the ruling party highlighting issue time and again only to cover up its failures and growing unpopularity in the state and to divert the attention of the people from the cash for vote scam in Telangana.

TDP Uses Brahmastram Against Governor, Repents Later


As cash-for-vote scam involving TDP legislator from Telangana region is intensifying with ACB reportedly getting a letter from the election commission asking its sleuths for a stringent probe, TDP leaders are trying to use all their brahmastrams.

It is known that TDP folks recently brought in section eight of AP Reorganisation Act into the picture. As Governor ESL Narasimhan is not responding despite TDP supremo Chandrababu meeting him time and again over the implementation of governor’s law and order in Hyderabad, the party leaders chose to target ESL Narasimhan, the constitutional head of the state.

TDP senior leader Acham Naidu recently, in a press meet, addressed the governor as ‘you’ (without a pinch of respect) and said that he was acting as a ‘gangireddu’ (meaning a bull). Lashing out at governor, Acham Naidu said why governor was tight lipped when KCR said that Andhra Pradesh police cannot execute their duties in Hyderabad.

Centre Serious:

The Centre, which noticed these severe objectionable comments made by Acham Naidu against the governor of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states, has reportedly warned AP chief secretary that TDP leaders were launching verbal attacks against the governor.

Acham Naidu Apologizes and Withdraws:

After learning that Centre expressed its serious concerns over derogatory comments he made against governor, Acham Naidu spoke to the media and said that he was apologetic about the statements he made. He elucidated that he made those remarks only in agony after he looked at the situation of Andhra Pradesh. In case my statements had hurt governor, I withdraw them immediately, added Acham Naidu.

Need for Naidu to Control Leaders:

It is known that TDP leaders are speaking whatever they want that are sometimes lacking logic and sounding contradictory. Earlier, Parakala Prabhakar, who spoke about cash for vote scam has said that the voice in the audio tapes was not that of Chandrababu Naidu. Shortly, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said that the audio was fabricated. 

Even as these leaders continue to make contradictory statements, TDP MLC Somireddy went a step ahead and said that TRS was obstructing the bail of Revant Reddy. How can a political party influence the court was the question then. He was allegedly trying to send wrong messages to people on courts, which was again a matter of serious concern,

This confusion among leaders must be curtained. It is high time for Chandrababu Naidu to bring in a proper code of conduct within the party. Verbal attacks on political leaders are at times acceptable as criticism, however, using the same policy for courts, constitutional heads and constitution is highly not acceptable.
