Harish asks Congress leaders to resign

Staff Reporter

Says high command was silent when the Telangana agitation was at its peak

SANGAREDDY: Siddipet legislator T. Harish Rao suggested that the Congress MLAs resign their posts and join the movement.

Addressing a gathering participating in Telangana Walk from Ambedkar statue to Rangadhampally Chowrasta held at Siddipet on Sunday, Mr. Harish Rao said that it was not right on the part of the Congress high command not to give appointment to the party MLAs from the region even though lakhs of employees were participating in the non-cooperation movement agitation for the past three days. “Why the Congress high command is silent when the agitation is at its peak? Why appointment was not given to Congress MLAs?” he asked adding that it would be better they should resign the Congress party and join the agitation.

Contradictory stand

Referring to the TDP, Mr. Harish Rao said that the party MLAs were exhibiting contradictory stands when they were with different platforms. “TDP Parliamentary Party leader Nama Nageswara Rao said that they will not support the agitation by our president K. Chandrasekhar Rao in Lok Sabha. This means the TDP is not ready to extend support to Telangana,” he said warning that it would be limited to minimum seats in the region. He said that TRS would continue its demand of recalling the Governor as he was opposing Telangana formation.
