Hyderabad: Spitting fire at YS Jaganmohan
Reddy for claiming that the Andhra Pradesh government was
surviving at his mercy, Health Minister DL Ravindra Reddy
on Tuesday dared the former MP dared to dislodge it by "making his
so-called group of MLAs" resign immediately.
"Let your so-called group of MLAs resign from their
posts. Then the government will fall and we shall face an
election. Why wait till 2014," Ravindra Reddy challenged Jagan
this evening, in reaction to the claims made by the latter in
New Delhi today.
Talking to reporters in the Secretariat after his
meeting with Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Ravindra
Reddy asserted that the state government was not surviving on
"If you have an iota of shame or sense, make the MLAs
who are supporting you to quit their posts forthwith. Let them
not sail on two boats at the same time. You have no right to
talk about morality," Ravindra lashed out at Jagan.
The minister said he was ready to resign from his MLA
post if the five MLAs from Kadapa district who joined the
Jagan camp too quit their posts.
"I am prepared any moment to step down from my
minister and MLA posts. Let them come and submit their
resignations to the Assembly Deputy Speaker. I will do the
same," Ravindra, a staunch opponent of Jagan, said.
The minister said he would fight the elections from
his native Mydukuru constituency without using the picture of
late YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
The five MLAs of the Jagan group challenged Ravindra
Reddy to win the election without using YSR`s picture or
harping on the schemes he launched.
Ravindra dismissed claims that the government was
reduced to a minority with 25 MLAs joining the Jagan camp.
"Jagan is taking the MLAs along with him by resorting
to emotional blackmail. There is no threat to the government.
If anyone feels so, let them petition the Governor and we
shall prove our majority on the floor of the Assembly," he
