Kiran obsessed with by-polls: Left

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The CPI and the CPI (Marxist) have criticised Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and his Cabinet colleagues for leaving administration in a “state of coma” in the name of bye-elections to Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula Assembly seats.

The two parties faulted the government for deploying one-third of Cabinet in the district while the Congress had reportedly decided to spend huge amounts to win the by-polls at any cost. Though the results of the bye-election would not make any difference to the State politics, the Congress was leaving no stone unturned to ensure the victory of its nominees, they said.

CPI (M) State secretary B.V. Raghavulu told reporters here on Tuesday that the deployment of Ministers and resources in Kadapa district on the poll eve reflected the Chief Minister's “insecurity” about continuance in the post.

Separately, CPI State secretary K. Narayana criticised the government for its frenzied approach towards the election. The Congress appeared to have developed a sort of “phobia” ever since the election was notified. “The government should stop over-action and focus on the issues faced by the people,” he said.

The functioning of several key departments has come to a standstill as Ministers are camping in Kadapa. “There will not be any big change in the political scenario even if YSR Congress nominee Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy and his mother Vijayamma win the election,” Dr. Narayana said adding that the CPI would campaign for the TDP in the elections.

To a question, he hoped that the crisis in the TDP caused by reports of differences between party president N. Chandrababu Naidu and Nandamuri Harikrishna, MP, would blow over.
