Responding to Pawan’s allegation that the demand for Telangana statehood got strengthened during YSR’s tenure, Vasireddy Padma asserted the former chief minister tried his best to keep the state united and it was TDP & BJP which helped Congress to bifurcate the state in an objectionable manner. “Where had you been sleeping when Congress divided the state with the support of TDP and BJP. What happened to your Telugu pride then?,” She questioned Pawan.
Padma, however, admitted the fact that Jagan and KCR never criticized each other. “YSR Congress
never anticipated that TRS which have just 2 MPs would achieve Telangana. Hence, Jagan thought there is no necessity to cricitize KCR,” she explains.
Vasireddy Padma’s explanation itself tells about the secret pact between Jagan and KCR who always wished to see the state divided for political gains. Are these Leaders who will be ruling us?
