Kiran Kumar Reddy asks party men not to talk ill of YSR
Sore at Ministers' silence over Opposition criticism
HYDERABAD: Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy reportedly asserted at the Cabinet meeting here on Thursday that his Government would deal firmly with any law and order problem and ensure there was no disruption of public life following submission of the Justice Srikrishna Committee's report to the Centre.
Responding to the apprehensions aired by Minister for Roads & Buildings Dharmana Prasada Rao, the Chief Minister said that it was the collective responsibility of all to see that law and order was maintained.
Tough action sought
The Minister is said to have demanded that the Government act sternly against troublemakers. “If we fail to control law and order after December 31, our job may fall in the hands of someone else,” sources quoted him as saying.
The Chief Minister assured him that the Government would deal with any eventuality. He wanted Ministers to convincingly spell out the party's stand on Telangana – to abide by any decision taken by the high command. He explained to the Ministers the reasons behind the Government's recent decision to withdraw cases against agitators following the fast by Congress MPs from Telangana.
He also appealed to the party men not to talk ill of former Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy.
“He was our Chief Minister and the high command also held him in high esteem. It is better for the party leaders to refrain from any criticism of the late leader,” he reportedly said.
The Chief Minister reportedly expressed disappointment that none of the Ministers made any effort to counter the criticism of the Government by the Opposition parties.
The Cabinet decided to undertake a time-bound programme in the next three months to see that the welfare benefits accruing to the needy people actually reached them.
The Chief Minister is likely to undertake ‘Rachabanda' mass contact programme only after Sankranti in mid-January 2011.
