Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has alleged that the YSR Congress honourary president Y.S. Vijayamma launched indefinite hunger strike with sole objective of getting bail to her son Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, TDP state general secretary Panchumarthi Anuradha said that every Telugu knew the reasons and main motto behind Ms. Vijayamma's deeksha. She was attempting to reap harvest out of sentiments of people. She was very much concerned about bail to Mr. Jagan, she alleged.

"The deeds of Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy have led to division of State. Dr. Reddy was behind formation of Telangana Legislators Forum in 1999 and raking up Telangana issue. Dr. Reddy, in State Assembly in 2009, made promise to create Telangana state. The YSR CP, under leadership of Mr. Jagan, adopted a resolution that the party would honour the sentiments of Telangana people, at its plenary in Idupulapaya", she pointed out.

The YSR Congress leaders have turned united Andhra protagonists over night. Hence, the YSR Congress leaders tendered resignations with a view that they should not lose hold in Seemandhra. Dr. Reddy is being blamed for sordid state of affairs and division of state. To divert the attention of people, Ms. Vijayamma kick started the new drama, she alleged.

The Congress and YSR Congress would wipe out in Seemandhra in coming elections. Both the parties have harmed the interests of Seemandhra people, she added.
