Former chief minister K Rosaiah on Tuesday lauded Congress president Sonia Gandhi for organizing plenary session in a ‘historic’ and ‘memorable way’ in New Delhi.
Talking to media persons at Congress Legislature Party office for the first time after resigning from his chief minister’s post, Mr Rosaiah said the agenda taken up in the 83rd plenary session had covered almost all problems faced by the country.
He said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh gave a fitting reply to the Opposition parties, who stalled parliament business demanding Joint Parliamentary Committee probe, by stating that he would present himself before the Public Accounts Committee.
The senior leader said the plenary took a good decision on using of mines and ores, which are treated as natural gift, for the development and progress of the country and consider them as national property.
Mr Rosaiah said that the plenary also focused on using youth power in politics and gave top priority for them.
Reacting on the fast of Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu for the cause of farmers, the former chief minister said despite economic problems the state government was facing, it has announced an adequate financial package for the distressed farmers.
He called upon Mr Naidu, the senior and experienced politician, to understand the situation and come for dialogue to solve the imbroglio.
Referring to former Kadapa MP Jaganmohan Reddy’s 48-hour `Lakshaya Deeksha’ in Vijayawada, he said that he saw no hidden agenda in the fast and said that the former Kadapa MP wanted to bring genuine demands of farmers to the notice of state government.
