Condemning the remarks of former RTC chairman and senior Congress leader Gone Prakash Rao against Chief Minister K Rosaiah demanding him to step down for not handling delicate issues properly, Congress MLC Rudraraju Padma Raju on Friday termed them as unwarranted and demanded that the Mr Prakash Rao withdraw those comments.
Talking to media persons at the CLP office, Mr Padma Raju said the Congress leader has no moral right to demand the Chief Minister’s resignation as he is handling state administration with utmost efficiency.
Mr Padma Raju asked Mr Gone Prakash to raise any problems in the party fora instead of airing them before media persons.
“If the leader has any problem with the Chief Minister or Ministers, he can raise them before Pradesh Congress Committee or party High Command. The unwarranted comments before media will damage the party image and send a wrong message among people,” he pointed out.
Mr Prakash Rao had accused the Chief Minister of confusing the party cadre by stating that he became the Chief Minister by chance. The MLC had advised Mr Rosaiah to choose his words carefully.
Mr Prakash Rao had also stated that Mr Rosaiah order his Cabinet colleagues to mandatorily attend the AP Formation Day celebrations or quit from his post.
He had also said that GO No 610 and Free Zone issues could be solved if a person from Telangana becomes the Chief Minister.
