YSR Congress party on Tuesday took exception to actor and Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan for challenging its president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, rather than Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, on moving no-confidence motion against the NDA government on the injustice meted out to AP by the Centre.
Pawan Kalyan on Monday said he would take the responsibility of mobilising the support of all the parties for the no-confidence motion, if YSRC moved it in Parliament.
“As per the rules, a party with even one MP can move the no-confidence motion and Jagan’s party has five MPs. It requires the support of 50 MPs to take up the discussion on the motion and I will take the responsibility of mobilising their support, if YSRC moves the motion,” Pawan said.
Describing Pawan’s statement as childish, YSRC spokesman Ambati Rambabu said the Jana Sena Party chief should first elicit the view of his partner Chandrababu Naidu and the ruling TDP before proceeding any further.
“We are committed to the special category status and we have been fighting for the same. How dare, Pawan challenge our leader to move the motion, instead of asking the TDP about its stand on the issue?” he asked.
The issue of no trust motion had first come from Pawan and even when Naidu rubbished the matter, the actor is not questioning his partner, which only shows the lopsided and shoddy manner in which the Jana Sena chief has been conducting himself, Ambati said.
He asserted that Pawan should convince TDP in the first place to support the no confidence motion which can be tabled on March 21.
The TDP should be categorical about its support or otherwise, so that people can judge who is on which side.
