Hari said, “We believed that we could halt division. After Supreme Court refusing to impose stay, I have lost confidence that no one could stop AP division. So, there is no point in still being part of Jai Samaikyandhra Party. I don’t want evil forces (Jagan, Vijayamma and YSR Congress) to rule Vizag. Hence, I decided to stay out of polls so that no to divide TDP-BJP vote share. I urge all my supporters, people to vote for TDP-BJP as it is the only better option. Anyhow, NDA is coming to power at Centre. I have substantial reports, survey results with me which I could not reveal. He said Jagan should not come to power in State as it spois new State.”
In scathing attack against Jagan, Vijayamma, Hari said, “I knew Jagan’s intention to field Vijayamma from Vizag as he want to loot natural resources here. Why didn’t Jagan field Vijayamma from Kadapa Parliament which was earlier represented by Y.S Rajasekhar Reddy? But Why they want to come to Vizag? Jagan has no place in Hyderabad, Telangana as people, local leaders are rejecting him.”
Sabbam Hari submitted his resignation to JSP after Supreme Court turned down their offer to impose stay on ongoing bifurcation. However, Hari apologised to his colleagues Lagadapati Rajagopal, Undavalli Arun Kumar who have been fighting against unilateral division of AP. Hari extended his full support to them. Hari said he hasn’t taken opportunistic route in his 30-yr-old political career.
