The ruling YSRC has made it clear during the Rayalaseema Garjana at STBC college grounds in Kurnool on Monday that the government remains firm on its stand of decentralization and equal justice to all three regions of the state. According to sources, the TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu was promoting vested interests for real estate trade in the name of a single capital. The Garjana of the backward Rayalaseema region was to highlight the rights of people of the region by supporting the JAC. Large crowds containing students, advocates and other pro-Rayalaseema organisations as also YSRC cadres from all over the region participated in the Garjana.
The YSRC leaders said their government was especially keen on having the judiciary’s base in Kurnool in conformity with the recommendations of the Sribagh pact and of other committees. Finance minister Buggana Rajendranath, minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, deputy chief minister Amzad Bhasha and minister Ushasri Charan including MLAs and MPs were present. Ramachandra Reddy came down heavily on Naidu and said the TD chief did nothing for Rayalaseema and not even for his own Kuppam Assembly segment.
Chandrababu was criticised by the finance minister Buggana Rajendranath. Buggana said Naidu was working against the Rayalaseema people’s interests. He also said that the High Court for Kurnool is Rayalaseema’s right and our government is committed to have the judiciary’s capital in Kurnool. Minister Gummana Jayaram challenged Naidu and local TD leaders from Rayalaseema to reiterate their opposition to having the HC base in Kurnool. The people in the region will boycott TD, if they do so.
The PAC chairman and Uravakonda MLA, Payyaula Kesav said, “The YSRC had tried to create a rift among various regions by targeting the TD, but the failure of the Rayalaseema Garjana clearly indicated that the people of the region are not in a position to believe the YSRC.
