Tdp MLAs Nagam Janaradhan Reddy, Jogi Rammana and Harishwar Reddy press their demand for acceptance of their resignations from the Assembly staged a sit in demonstration in front of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker’s chambers on Tuesday. The Speaker N. Manohar had earlier asked the MLAs to come on Tuesday so that a decision on their resignation may be accepted. However he did not come to the office and agitated over his non presence the Tdp MLAs staged a sit in demonstration before his chambers.
Later talking to the media Harishwar Reddy told that if no communication is received from the Speaker shortly they would visit his native place in Tenali Guntur district and pressurise him for acceptance of their resignations.
Another legislator S. Venugopal Chary stayed in his constituency due to attend the last rites of a party worker and he could not come to Hyderabad to meet the Speaker. Harishwar Reddy further said that they had no connection with the Tdp and its supremo N Chandra Babu Naidu. He appealed the other Tdp legislators not to be content by submitting their resignations but they should also press for acceptance. Otherwise no purpose would be served by merely tendering resignations if they are not accepted.
He suggested the Congress leaders not to visit New Delhi for any further talks and asked that when Congress party emissaries could visit the State to meet the film star and Praja Rajyam Party Chief Chiranjeevi to hold talks for merger of his party in the Congress, then why the central leaders do not come to Hyderabad to hold talks with Telangana protagonists.
He said that the recent events clearly indicate that the Congress Party, the Tdp and the Centre are hand in glove to implement the secret eighth chapter of Srikrishna committee report for not creating Telangana state.
Jogi Ramman MLA said that the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress Party chief Sonia Gandhi should visit Hyderabad to seek a solution of the Telangana issue.
