New Delhi, 2 Aug (PTI): Maintaining that it was not against the division of Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress today accused the Congress of “hurting” the feelings of one region by failing to properly address the issue.
“We are clear on our stand. We wanted the Centre to play the role of the head of a family and sort out the issue amicably. But it has failed in its duty and has not been impartial. We condemn this deed of the Congress and we are not against separation,” party spokesperson Jupudi Prabhakar told reporters here.
“We firmly believe that justice should be done to all regions and the Centre has failed to take stock of the situation and the consequences arising out of the division while TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu started speaking in a tone that sounds like an extension of Delhi Congress,” Prabhakar said.
The party led by Jaganmohan Reddy said that after YSR Rajasekhara Reddy, the state has no strong leader and the deficit is clearly perceptible and the state leaders could not put forth the complete picture of the feelings of all regions and argue the case which would be amicable to all. It also accused the TDP leadership of showing raw opportunism on the issue.
YSRCP has taken a decision in the Plenary that any decision on the bifurcation issue should not affect people of any region and demanded that the issue should have been sorted out like a family matter, but the Congress has politicised it while TDP has given its tacit support.
