Will mobilise support for no-confidence move: Pawan Kalyan

Pawan Kalyan  

Accepting Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy’s challenge, Jana Sena founder Pawan Kalyan asked the YSR Congress to move a motion of no-confidence against the Central Government in the Parliament for failing to follow through on the promises made to Andhra Pradesh after its bifurcation.

The film star-turned-politician asserted that he would mobilise the support of the 50-odd members required to move the no confidence motion if the YSR Congress moves it.

“I will meet Left, Congress and other parties personally and seek their support if the YSR Congress moves the motion. If need be, I will go to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and seek the support of the parties there,” he said.

TRS support

While TDP and YSR Congress had 25 MPs together, leaders including AICC president Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav of Samajwadi Party and K. Kavitha of Telangana Rashtra Samiti had already extended their support to the Andhra Pradesh’s cause. “Not just 50, I am hopeful that around 80 members will support the move,” he said.

He advised the two principal Andhra parties to set aside differences and join hands cutting across political lines as this was a fight for the cause of Telugu people. The members could raise issues pertaining to AP, projects, funds and schemes during the debate on the no-confidence motion.

The no-confidence motion could be moved by a single member and the YSR Congress should take the initiative before the commencement of the session on March 5.

“The YSR Congress can approach the Secretary General of the Lok Sabha immediately. The party should move the motion by March 4, so that the issue will come up for debate in the House on March 5,” he said.

Dig at TDP, YSRCP

Mr. Pawan Kalyan alleged that TDP and YSR Congress behaved as if they were afraid of raising their voice against the Central government.

“Mr. Jagan is a strong leader and he can raise his voice against the Centre. The TDP will get an opportunity to move the motion if the YSR Congress backs out. People are looking at the two parties to fight for their cause,” said Mr. Pawan Kalyan.
