The Parliamentary Party of YSR Congress has kicked itself into gear to take up the issues pertaining to both the Telugu speaking states - Telangana state and the Andhra Pradesh.
“The YSRCP would raise the issues pertaining to farmers, irrigation and Railways. We would take up issues with the concerned officials and ministers and play our part in the developmental process of both the states,’ Party leader in Lok Sabha Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy said.
"We will highlight the plight of the affected people of Hudhdud cyclone and also demand that Pranathitha-Chevella project be declared as a national project. Our Party President has further instructed us to broach the subject of the welfare of the people of those mandals that were transferred to Andhra Pradesh from Telangana in wake of the Polavaram issue. Andhra Pradesh government has been neglecting these mandals and we will take up the issue in the Lok Sabha," Mekapati said.
Mekapati said that Nandyal MP SPY Reddy, who has earlier joined the TDP, has taken a U-turn and admitted that he did not leave the YSRCP. He and met Chief Minister only to discuss the issues of his constituency. So is the case with Araku MP Kothapalli Geetha. "SPY Reddy’s issue is sent to Privileges Committee, we will press for Geetha’s issue now and seek their disqualification.”
"If an MP wants to switch over to other party, he should resign his post and should seek re-election," Mekapati reminded.
