Telangana Rashtra Samithi leader K Taraka Rama Rao on Tuesday urged all MLAs from Telangana region, irrespective of their political affiliations, to resign for the cause of the separate state formation.
Talking to media persons at Assembly Media Point, KTR said the resignation of MLAs was enough to bring enough pressure on the Centre to force it to table the Telangana Bill in the Budget Session of Parliament.
“We do not want our students committing suicides for the sake of Telangana state formation. We want only resignation of MLAs for the formation of separate state,” he stated.
KTR also accused the Congress Legislators of resorting to delaying tactics on the separate statehood issue and asked them to make their stand clear.
He also said that the Congress Legislators have no moral right to question Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao for not joining their party MP’s protest during President Pratibha Patil’s Address to the Joint Sitting of both the Houses on the inaugural day of the Budget Session of Parliament.
The TRS leader also demanded that the Telugu Desam Party makes its stand clear on the Telangana issue. “Though the TDP had mentioned its commitment to Telangana in its manifesto, so far it has not come out with a clear statement on the separate statehood issue in the Assembly. Besides this, the TDP has not extended its support to the No Trust motion proposed by KCR,” KTR pointed out.
