Blaming both the ruling Congress and main opposition TDP for the state division, YSRC leader Sharmila said that such situation might not have come, if her father and former chief minister late YS Rajasekhara Reddy was alive.

Addressing the gathering at Kadiri, Hindupur and Anantapur towns as part of the ‘Samaikya Shanakaravam’ bus yatra in the district on Wednesday, she once again launched a broadside against TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu.

“It was Naidu, who gave letters to the Centre twice in favour of state division,’’ she said amid cheers from the huge gathering that welcomed Sharmila with Jai Samaikyandhra slogans.

Stating that Naidu has no moral right to take up ‘Atma Gaurava’ yatra after giving his consent for the division, she alleged that the TDP chief is taking up the yatra for diluting the ongoing agitation for Samaikyandhra. “TDP even kept the state division in its election manifesto and now trying to cheat the people by taking up such yatras,’’ she pointed out.

Demanding all the people’s representatives of all parties from Seemandhra to resign to their posts for the cause of Samaikyandhra, she said that it is only the YSRC which is fighting for the cause of united state.

Recalling that her father had a special affection towards the drought-prone Anantapur district and initiated irrigation projects for the benefit of the farming community here, she said the present Congress government diluted the schemes introduced by YSR one after another.
