The Telangana Rashtra Samiti, which is waiting for Congress leadership’s final word on creation of Telangana state, has decided to force the YSR Congress Party spell out its stand on the issue during Assembly session which will begin on Monday.
A meeting of the TRS Legislature Party, held at its office on the Assembly premises on Sunday, decided to demand that the government introduce a resolution on the Telangana issue in the House and decided to stall the Assembly proceedings if the government did not heed its demand. The TRSLP urged Congress and TDP MLAs from the region to support their demand in the House and express their solidarity with the Telangana movement.
After the recent byelections the YSRCP’s strength has increased from two to 17 and is trying to spread its wings in the Telangana region too. The YSRCP has already taken up several agitation programmes in the region. In this backdrop the TRS, which had targeted mainly the TDP in the House in the past, wants to force the YSRCP to spell out its stand on the statehood issue. By cornering the YSRCP, the TRS hopes to prevent Telangana MPs and MLAs from joining the Jagan party.
TRSLP leader E Rajendar said that they would attend the Assembly session only for a resolution on Telangana and corner YSR Congress leader Konda Surekha to come out clean on her Telangana credentials by announcing the party’s stand. The YSRCP has 17 members in the House.
If it declares its stand on the Issue, it will help all opposition parties to force the government to introduce a resolution on Telangana, he said.
