Congress should tell its stand first: YSRCP

Reiterating that Congress, being the main player in the UPA Government, has to spell out its stand on Telangana first and then elicit the views of other parties, YSR Congress has said all opposition parties should ask in unison to force the ruling party to tell its policy on the issue.

“Congress has been skirting the issue all these years and the December 28 All Party Meeting should be convened only after the major party tells its stand,” Party leaders Kontala Ramakrishna and Bajireddy Goverdhan told reporters here on Wednesday.


There were two All Party Meetings earlier on December 7, 2009 and January 6, 2010 and some parties had done a U-turn on the issue while Congress did not speak its mind out but only repeated that they will leave it to the High Command.

Later there was a Sri Krishna Committee which has submitted its report and the Government did not react to it which shows that it has no seriousness on the issue.

“We will take a decision on the issue and finalise the names in the meeting to be held tomorrow,” they said.

Congress has been dillydallying with the issue since long and TRS has been behaving in a questionable manner in word and deed which is not a parliamentary practice, they said.KCR has been adopting double standards. On one hand he has been saying that All Party Meeting is a farce and on the other he has been asking other parties to say whether or not they are for Telangana.

“TRS instead of trying to dictate its terms on other parties should join the opposition parties in demanding that Congress should make its stand clear on the issue,” they said.

If Congress wants to pass a Bill it will do, even if it is not acceptable to majority of people as it happened to the recent FDI in retail issue or the earlier 123 (nuclear) agreement, they said adding that Congress should come clean to establish its sincerity.

The Centre also has the option of creating a separate state under article 3, if it really wants to, they said.
