Hyderabad: In the wake of some Congress MLAs commenting that they would not spare even Congress president Sonia Gandhi if government schemes are not properly implemented, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah Sunday asked partymen not to violate party discipline.

"There is no problem if I am the object of their criticism. If it goes to the extent of saying that we will not spare Sonia Gandhiji and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, it is very sad. My appeal to all such friends is that party discipline should be protected," he told reporters.

"We have a great and unique leadership in the form of Sonia Gandhiji and Manmohan Singh. We should respect our leadership. If there is any problem, we can discuss that in party fora," he said.

Rosaiah's directive to the partymen came in the wake of three Congress MLAs from Kadapa district, all considered loyalists of late YS Rajasekhara Reddy, saying yesterday that they have a right to point out even if Sonia Gandhi or Manmohan Singh err.

"We have the right to point out if Sonia Gandhi or Dr Manmohan Singh err. At the same time, they also have the freedom to tell us if we do something wrong," Adinarayana Reddy, Congress legislator from Jammalamadugu, and two other MLAs said.
