Nagam’s meet moots new JAC to fight polls

NAGARKURNOOL: In what is being perceived as an attempt to dare his leader N Chandrababu Naidu and TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao, TDP Telangana leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy on Monday said the legislators regardless of the party they belong to should come out in support of Telangana or people would dump them in history’s dust-bin.
Janardhan Reddy organised a massive public meeting at the headquarters of his home Nagarkurnool constituency without the Telugu Desam flags.
Kalawakurthy MLA Jaipal Yadav, an ardent supporter of Janardhan Reddy, brought out a proposal for formation of a Joint Action Committee to contest all the 119 assembly seats in Telangana region in the 2014 elections, indicating the possibility of a new political formation parallel to the TDP and the TRS.
As many as seven TDP legislators (including Janardhan Reddy) turned up at the public meeting though Chandrababu Naidu gave ‘permission’ to only three MLAs – Ravula Chandrasekhara Reddy, P Ramulu and Jaipal Yadav.
Others who made it were J Ramanna (Adilabad), S Venugopala Chary (Mudhole) and Koppula Hareeswar Reddy (Parigi).
Though there are nine TDP MLAs in Mahaboobnagar district, the party appeared to have restrained five of them from attending the meeting.
Telugu Desam district president Manohar and former minister K Vijayarama Rao too took part in the meeting.
The meeting adopted resolutions which included introduction of Telangana bill in Parliament, annulment of GO 177 which imposes curbs on employees in taking part in agitations and lifting of cases against students.
The speakers at the meeting said similar meetings should be held in all the 119 assembly constituencies in the region and warned that those who did not attend them would have to face the wrath of the people.
The next meeting is scheduled at Parigi, represented by Hareeshwar Reddy in the Assembly.
Janardhan Reddy, in a spirited address, said that he would not hesitate to resign to his post and would not even mind being called a Maoist in his struggle for Telangana state.
“The Srikrishna Committee had branded Muslims fighting for Telangana as ISI agents and others as Maoists. I do not care what branding they would give me but I would continue to fight for Telangana,” he said adding that Telangana was his birth right
