VIJAYAWADA:  Welcoming Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao floating a new political party Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), YSRC general secretary and Government Advisor (Public Affairs) Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy has opined that the functioning of parties will get better if new parties emerge.

“We welcome any party which works for the people,” Sajjala said on Thursday. He, however, asserted that the YSRC is not a party which does politics for the sake of politics. “Ours is a party which is functioning in a transparent manner and that is why we have the people’s support,” he said.

Sajjala said their focus is on the development of the State and they do not want to talk about neighbouring States. “Some parties in the neighbouring States, which have left the people’s issues to the air, are criticising us,” he observed, in an indirect reference to TRS (previously BRS) leaders’ recent criticism of governance in Andhra Pradesh.  

The YSRC has only responded to the adverse remarks of political leaders on governance in the State. “We are not against any region. The YSRC strongly believes that every State should develop,’’ he added.

Meanwhile, Education Minister Botcha Satyanarayana felt that there will not be any impact of BRS on the ruling YSRC in Andhra Pradesh. “The BRS will be like any other party -- the Congress, BJP, CPI and CPM -- in Andhra Pradesh,” he added. 

Responding to the Maha Padayatra of the Amaravati Parirakshana Samithi from Amaravati to Arasavalli demanding that Amaravati be the sole capital of the State, Botcha reiterated that some real estate brokers are undertaking the padayatra and it is backed by the opposition TDP.

“They are undertaking padayatra for looting the public money in the name of Amaravati capital,” he remarked.

TDP leaders should answer the question of Uttarandhra people why they are opposing setting up of executive capital in Visakhapatnam as part of the decentralised development plan of the YSRC government, he demanded.
