Opponents attack Jagan ahead of fast at Nizamabad
Hyderabad: TRS, the Telangana political Joint
Action Committee (JAC) and Congress leaders from the region
today voiced stiff opposition to Kadapa MP Y S Jagan Mohan
Reddy`s fast to be held at Nizamabad district tomorrow.
"Jagan has an anti-Telangana attitude. He never spoke in
support of Telangana. He has tried to evade a clear stance on
the separate statehood demand (by saying that the decision on
it has to be taken by Centre). All Congress activists in
Telangana should oppose his visit," Congress Lok Sabha member
from Karimnagar Ponnam Prabhakar told reporters.
Jagan is scheduled to hold a 48-hour fast at Armoor in
Nizamabad district over farmers` problems.
The JAC alleged Jagan`s visit to Nizamabad district in
Telangana region is only a manifestation of the "domination of
coastal Andhra" over Telangana.
"We seek a clear stand on Telangana. No one should come
here without a clear stance on the separate statehood issue.
No political yatra should be undertaken in Telangana (without
endorsing separate statehood demand)," JAC convener M
Maintaining that Jagan has proved himself to be against
Telangana, TRS MLA and party president K Chandrasekhar Rao`s
son K T Rama Rao said the YSR Congress leader is bound to face
Asserting that it respected the sentiments of Telangana
people, the YSR Congress, however, said it is for the Centre
to take a decision on the issue.
The TRS and JAC have earlier opposed the visits of TDP
chief N Chandrababu Naidu to Warangal district in Telangana
because of his allegedly ambivalent stance on the statehood
In a statement released later, Jagan said his fast should
not be politicised as it intends to highlight farmers`
He reminded his party`s decision of not fielding
candidates in the assembly segments where bypolls are
necessitated due to the resignation of sitting MLAs in support
of the separate statehood demand.
Jagan demanded that the support price and input subsidy
for agriculture be enhanced.
