KCR's threat of No Trust motion not feasible: Congress

The Congress on Saturday scoffed at Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao’s threat to bring in a No Confidence motion against the N Kiran Kumar Reddy government during the forthcoming Budget Session of the Assembly by saying that party has the requisite numbers in the House.

Speaking to media persons at the Assembly Media Point, All India Congress Committee secretary Ponguleti Sudhakar stated that the government was ready to face any No Trust motion and would easily prove its majority on the Floor of the House.


He said that KCR can dream of introducing the No Confidence motion against Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s government, but it would be a useless exercise.

The senior Congress leader stated that the government was ready to face the No Trust motion at any time and challenged KCR to act on his words.

Mr Sudhakar further went on that KCR should start thinking of merging his party with the Congress, on the lines of the Praja Rajyam Party, since it (the Congress) is the sole party which has the power to push and indeed create a separate Telangana state from Andhra Pradesh.

Reminding that KCR had once stated that he would merge his party with the Congress if the separate Telangana state was carved out from Andhra Pradesh, Mr Sudhakar said that this would soon be  a reality.

The AICC secretary also revealed that the Congress leaders from Telangana would intensify their struggle for a separate state from February 14 by meeting the party top brass in New Delhi.

If the Centre still does not makes any announcement on separate state formation in the Budget Session of Parliament, Mr Sudhakar said that the elected representatives from Telangana would submit resignations from their posts en masse to mount pressure on the government.

Condemning the statement of senior leader Paladugu Venkata Rao that bifurcation of the state was not ‘advisable’, the AICC secretary pointed out that former prime minister Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru had himself opposed the merger of Telangana with Andhra Pradesh at the time of formation of state on linguistic basis.

Mr Sudhakar went on that Pundit Nehru had even given the option to Telangana leaders to form the separate state at any time.

The AICC secretary also condemned Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu’s remarks against Congress president Sonia Gandhi in which he had alleged that she was involved in corruption.

Mr Sudhakar said that Mr Naidu’s tenure saw corruption being glorified and this alone had deprived the former chief minister of the moral right to make comments against others.
