Jagan breaks silence, leaves issue to Sonia

Supporters told to await high command decision

Y S Jaganmohan Reddy,This is not the time or occasion (for such activities),” he said in a statement released here on returning from Pulivendula after performing YSR’s last rites.

“Like my father, I am duty bound to be a loyal and disciplined Congress worker. We are in deep mourning. As a disciplined soldier of the Congress, it gives pain to the soul of our beloved leader,” he said.

“Every Congress worker knows it is the tradition of our party to leave the decision of leadership to the high command and our beloved leader Sonia Gandhiji. Our high command respects the public perception and feelings of lakhs of Congress workers and Sonia  Gandhi knows too well what is good for all of us and what is good for our state and the people. I request you to await her decision on the issue of leadership and also urge you to abide by the decision,” he said.

Jagan also expressed his strong disapproval of party leaders and workers rushing to the media, organising signature campaigns, using banners and placard demonstrations in his favour. “I humbly appeal to you to be strong and courageous; I am with you in these trying times, just as you are with me.”
