Party authorises Jagan to decide floor leaders

The Parliamentary Party and Telangana Legislature Party of YSRCP has met at Lotus Pond and passed a resolution authorising the Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to announce the leader in both the Houses.

Nellore MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy told media after the meeting here on Saturday that they will play a constructive role and extend issue-based support to the NDA government but at the same time the state interests will be high on agenda.

Brushing aside the rumours that some more will leave the Party, he said, we are united and will continue to take up people’s issues and work for betterment of the state and national interests as stated by our party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

P Srinivasa Reddy, the Khammam MP, echoed the same feelings. They said Polavaram issue would be taken up in the House and will be debated as there are some loopholes in the Ordinance.

The three MLAs from Khammam, Thati Venkateswalru, P Venkateswarlu and Madan lal said that they will be with the people and play a constructive role in the development of Telangana state. They denied the rumours that they were shifting to TRS. No one contacted us and we are not ready to cross over and will work under the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. “We will extend issue-based support to TRS” they said.

Later addressing the media at the Party Office, Party leader Jyothula Nehru has listed out the minute-to-minute programme of the review meetings YS Jagan Mohan Reddy would be having on June 4, 5 and 6 in which Parliamentary constituencies and relevant assembly segments would come under review.

The meeting will be held at Rajahmundry in the first phase and analysis would be worked out with the leaders and contestants of the five districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East and West Godavari districts, he said.

On Polavaram project he said, it should come up as a multipurpose project as envisioned by YSR and should be useful to both Seemandhra and Telangana as well. After we have parted like brothers there is no point in making it a big issue he added. (INN)
