Telangana: Assembly witnesses Kiran-Naidu duel

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and Leader of the Opposition N. Chandrababu Naidu engaged in a verbal duel in the Assembly on Friday this time on the political stands taken by their respective parties on Telangana issue.

Mr. Reddy blamed Mr. Naidu for keeping the stand of his Telugu Desam ambiguous on the issue by his “two-eyes theory”. Mr Naidu retorted saying, “yes, my party treats both Seemandhra and Telangana regions as its two eyes. But, we are not like Congress which has adopted a double-tongued stand on the issue.”

The Chief Minister replied that the Centre would convene another meeting on Srikrishna Committee's report after Assembly session and asked Mr Naidu to indicate his party's stand clearly on Telangana at that meeting without mincing words. Mr Naidu said his party would not attend it since it was for the Congress government at the Centre to indicate its mind first.

He criticised the Chief Minister announcing his decision to scrap cases filed against people during agitations for and against Telangana only after receiving a representation from the Congress MPs and not in response to his plea. Denying the charge, the Chief Minister said the cases were being withdrawn in phases even now.

Home Minister P. Sabitha Reddy blamed political parties for vying with each other in supporting to Telangana Joint Action Committee on Million March and finding fault with the government.
