Gattu lashes out at AICC for ignoring YSR

Suspended Congress leader and staunch loyalist of Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Gattu Ramachandra Rao on Wednesday criticized the Congress Working Committee for not recalling services of former chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy in the All India Congress Committee meeting held for the first time after his death.

Talking to media persons outside the Assembly premises, Mr Ramachandra Rao regretted that the AICC session had not paid tributes to the former chief minister, who had worked hard and led the Congress party to power in the state for two consecutive terms.

Mr Ramachandra stated that Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who had lavished praises on Mr Rajasekhara Reddy for making state a model in the country by implementing various welfare schemes and programmes for the uplift of poor and middle class people, has completely forgot the services of the leader.

Recalling the state had sent 33 MPs to Centre, the suspended leader said the UPA-II government was formed due to YSR’s efforts. “However, the CWC has forgotten his services,” he regretted.

Mr Ramachandra stated that the some members in the party High Command and the Pradesh Congress Committee have hatched a conspiracy to bury the political career of Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy. He refused to name the alleged conspirators.

He asked the High Command to act against the anti-Jagan group and utilize the services of the Kadapa in revamping the party in the state.
