Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy is at it again. A day ahead of the YSRC’s Samaikya Sankharavam, Kiran, who appears to be trying to steal YSRC chief Jagan Mohan Reddy’s thunder, on Friday shot off letters to President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wondering at the “unusual haste” being shown by the Centre to divide the State.
He pleaded with the President and the Prime Minister to ensure that the T resolution is sent to the State Assembly before referring the bill to it as was done in the case of Jharkhand, Uttarakhand and Chhattisgarh.
While heaping praises on the President, who has ‘vast political experience and witnessed freedom struggle’ and the Prime Minister, who was a victim of partition, Kiran said, “In democratic India, established practices and conventions are treated on a par with rules and provisions in the Constitution. However, at present, the Centre seems to be not taking these practices into account.”
He felt the Centre had added fuel to fire by bringing the Cabinet Note as a table item in a hasty manner. Stating that pursuing division process without homework was creating apprehensions in the minds of a majority of the population, he urged the duo to ensure established practices and conventions were followed.
