Panchayat raj minister and Telangana protagonist K Jana Reddy, who usually appears composed and calm, fired salvos on his boss and chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Saturday.
The reason for his outburst is the alleged media leaks given by the followers of the chief minister on the road map presented by Kiran on the Telangana issue at the Congress core committee meeting in Delhi last week.
“It is not proper for anybody to leak the reports submitted to the party high command to the media. It only amounts to indiscipline. The party high command is aware of every happening in the state,” he said.
Jana Reddy was addressing mediapersons here on Saturday after he had held confabulations with his peers V Hanumantha Rao, Palvai Govardhan Reddy, S Rajaiah, Ponnam Prabhakar and Rapolu Ananda Bhaskar.
Taking an indirect dig at the chief minister, Jana Reddy wondered what the need was there for anybody to disclose to the media the report submitted to the party core committee. “Even if anybody gave false reports to our party leadership on the Telangana issue only to stop bifurcation of the state, I am sure our party high command will not get carried away by those wrong reports. The AICC top brass knows the ground reality and will form Telangana state very soon. The efforts being put in by some leaders to stall formation of T-state will be futile,” Jana Reddy said and made an earnest appeal to his party supremo Sonia Gandhi to announce the decision immediately.
