Vijayawada, April.6 (NSS): Stating that the people of Andhra Pradesh state were not believing in TDP and YSRCP’s movements seeking special status to the state, Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan alleged that the then UPA government had divided the state by allocating assets to Telangana state and debts to residual Andhra Pradesh state.
Pawan participated in Padayatra protesting against the attitude of the centre towards Andhra Pradesh state in implementing assurances mentioned in the State Division Act. Speaking on the occasion, Pawan said that the people will not be sold out like the leaders, and made it clear that he will wage movements with everyone for the sake of special status. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi government has the responsibility of fulfilling the assurance of special status given to the state in the Parliament.
He participated in the Padayatra along with the leaders of Left Parties—Madhu (CPM) and Ramakrishna (CPI) on national high way from Benz Circle to Ramavarappadu.
Speaking on the occasion, Pawan said that he was waging movement along with Left parties as TDP and YSRCP were not fighting for SCS sincerely. He alleged that some leaders mortgaged special status for the sake of selfish ends. “We have no belief in state government. There is no use with all-party meeting. TDP and YSRCP have failed to wage movement succumbing to external pressure. I am speaking on special status as they failed in it”, he said. Reminding Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s remarks that package was ‘a wonderful one when compared to the special package which was a stale Laddus’, Pawan said that Chandrababu, who then said that special status was not a Sanjeevani, was now speaking about special status. The people were not believing in TDP and YSRCP’s movements on special status and hence Jana Sena was waging movement with Left parties, he said and opined that the TDP would have conducted all-party meeting one year ago. There was no use with all-party meeting now, he opined and suggested the Ministers to discuss with all political parties on the movement’s future course of action plan. (NSS)
