Ambati scoffs at CM's words, says loyalists waiting for Jagan nod to resign

Suspended Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Ambati Rambabu on Sunday scoffed at the statement made by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy in New Delhi on Saturday where he dared former Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy to pull down the government.

Talking to media persons, Mr Rambabu said that loyalists of Mr Jaganmohan Reddy are just waiting for a nod by him to resign from their posts. It is only due to Mr Jaganmohan Reddy’s words that he will not pull the rug from under the Congress till 2014,that his supporters are still in the Congress, Mr Rambabu said.

He however added that if Mr Jaganmohan Reddy gives them the nod, the Legislators in the Congress party will not hesitate to resign from their posts, thus effectively putting the government in a minority.

 “The decision on submitting resignations to their elected posts will be taken at appropriate time,” Mr Rambabu said.

He also criticized the Chief Minister for questioning the Mr Jaganmohan Reddy’s experience.

Citing the example of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, Mr Rambabu said that the late leader had “no experience when his mother Indira Gandhi died.” The suspended PCC general secretary added, “The Congress party still chose him to lead the nation and appointed him as prime minister, despite his inexperience and lack of contribution to the party till he was made prime minister. “

Mr Rambabu further added, “there is no guarantee that posts will be given to those who serve party loyally.”

He also pointed out that Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy could not even pronounce some words in Telugu properly during the oath taking ceremony. He asked, “How can someone who does not even speak the language properly during the oath taking ceremony, serve the Telugu people efficiently.”
