Rahul can’t pay homage to YSR


YSR Congress has said that AICC Vice President Rahul Gandhi has no moral right to pay homage to YS Rajasekhar Reddy  as the Party had worked in tandem with TDP in harassing his family member by foisting false cases against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to garland  YSR Statue in Anantapuramu district during his padayatra on  July 24.

The party alleged that after Congress drew a blank in 2014 election, now Rahul Gandhi is trying to invoke YSR for mileage and this was  a shameless  act, the party said.

“Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Andhra Pradesh to console the family of farmers who committed suicide is ridiculous as Congress has worked hand in hand with TDP right from the death of YSR till the division of the state and even after,” party spokesperson Vasireddy Padma remarked.

Congress has played a crucial role in the division of the State and helped out TDP on many aspects, including transfer of votes in the general elections and now the Congress leader coming to the State to console the farmer suicides is ridiculous, she said.

“When YSR family members sought permission to carry out the Odarpu Yatra, it was denied and they were insulted by the high command and when YS Jagan Mohan Reddy came out of the Party he and his family members were harassed and false cases were foisted.

This apart the high-command has seen to it that the name of YSR was included in the FIR. How can such a party pay homage to YSR now,” she asked

She recalled how Congress which had announced Rs 1 lakh ex-gratia to the kin of those who died of shock on hearing the sad demise and backed out.

Tension at Shoban Babu’s Residence


Tension atmosphere is prevailing at veteran actor Shoban Babu’s residence as a political organisation in Tamil Nadu, Tamilar Munnetra Padai has warned Tamil Nadu Government that they would remove the statue of Shoban Babu, which was erected at his residence in Chennai.
It may be noted that Tamil Nadu Government earlier directed this political organisation to remove the statue of LTTE supremo Prabhakaran stating that it’s against the law to set up such statues who were labeled as anti social elements. Owing to the directions, Tamilar Munnetra Padai removed Prabhakaran’s statue.
As Prabhakaran’s statue is removed, the organization came up with demands that no statues should be installed in the state. As a first move, it asked government to pull off Shoban Babu’s statue. In case, the government fails to do so, they said they would plunge into the action.
Meanwhile, Shoban Babu’s family members said that they built the statue in their own place and if anyone has any objection, they can approach the court of law. A large number of Tamilar Munnetra Padai’s activists were taken into the custody who were protesting in front of Shoban Babu’s residence.
The sources said that Jayalalitha Government is planinng for further actions against Munnetra Padai.
