Hyderabad | 2nd March 2014
Taking a strong objection to the bandh call given by TJAC and other units on March 5, in the wake of Y S Jaganmohan Reddy?s visit to Khammam, the YSRCP has appealed to the parties supporting it to revoke the decision, as democracy permits political parties to carry out its electioneering in any region.
"TJAC, CPI and other district units of the New Democracy calling for a bandh against Y S Jaganmohan Reddy's tour is undemocratic as it advocates the blocking of an individual's or an organisation's right to hold a meeting," party spokesperson Gattu Ramachandra Rao told reporters on Sunday.
"I appeal to the TJAC and others who have given the bandh call to review the decision as we are living in a democracy, and there is no room for imposing such restrictions on any person or on the president of a political party, even if opinions differ.
"There are other parties which have supported a united state, and there are parties like TDP, Congress and the Lok Satta party that have no clarity regarding their stand on the issue. On the other hand, our view is very clear, and we support the development of all regions," Gattu Ramachandra proclaimed.
"I once again appeal to the TJAC and others to revoke their bandh call in the better interest of democratic values," he said. (INN)
