Former Road Transport Corporation chairman and senior Congress leader Gone Prakash Rao on Thursday found fault with Chief Minister K Rosaiah for stating that ministers, who were interested in State Formation Day celebrations on November 1 can participate in the event.
Talking to media persons at the CLP media point, Mr Prakash Rao said the Chief Minister’s statement will sends wrong signals to the people of the state. He added that the statement has also brought disrepute to the party for issuing such confusing statements.
The Congress leader asked the Chief Minister to make it mandatory on the Ministers to participate in the Formation Day celebrations.
Mr Prakash Rao opined that the Chief Minister should submit his resignation if he fails to issue orders making it incumbent on the Ministers to participate in the celebrations.
Mr Rosaiah had left the question of participation in the celebrations on the conscience of the Ministers, by saying that participation was voluntary and no one can be forced to participate in the event.
The Minister had then made a collective decision that it was their responsibility towards the state to participate in the celebrations.
