Jagan-led team meets governor, seeks Assembly session

YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy led a delegation of party MPs, MLAs and MLCs to Governor E S L  Narasimhan on Thursday requesting him to convene the Assembly so that a resolution in favour of United Andhra Pradesh could be passed even before the draft bill or resolution is tabled by the ruling Congress.

The delegation submitted a memorandum to the governor to send the resolution to be passed by the state Assembly to the President of India.

Jagan earlier met the Governor on September 30 with the same demand and the party wanted all political parties to pass a resolution opposing the bifurcation of the state.
Jagan had then blamed Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy for failing to do so, despite a request by his colleagues.

Later addressing a press meet at his Lotus Pond residence, Jagan blamed the chief minister for forcing government employees to withdraw strike.

“Kirankumar Reddy is just following party president Sonia Gandhi’s instructions,” he alleged.

He announced that YSRC legislators will organise dharna in front of the chief minister’s residence on Friday and the Samaikhya Sankharavam meeting, which got clearance from the High Court, would be organised on October 26.

He urged all those in favour of a united state, irrespective of their party affiliations and region, to attend the meeting.

YSRCP leader MV Mysura Reddy said recently that the State Assembly had not been prorogued but adjourned sine die. This enables the chief minister or the Assembly Speaker to reconvene the Assembly by giving a notice three days in advance.

Meanwhile, the state CPI unit has alleged a tacit understanding between the CPM and YSRCP, as both support a united state. CPI State secretary Narayana came down heavily on CPM state secretary BV Raghavulu for entering into an agreement with the YSRCP on seat sharing. He challenged Raghavulu to disclose the details.

In fact, more than the state unit, the CPM’s central leadership is seeking an alliance with the YSRCP. The Left parties are organising a “national convention against Communalism” on October 30.
