Pradesh Congress Committee president Botsa Satyanarayana on Wednesday came down heavily on Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu for stalling the proceedings in the House.
Talking to media persons at the Congress Legislature Party office, Botsa Satyanarayana accused Naidu of adopting double standards in the House and pressing for discussion on liquor syndicate issue instead of raising farmers, junior doctors, students and weavers issues. He asked Naidu to explain why he was pressing for discussion on liquor scam instead of problems being faced by the people.
Stating that government was ready to give explanation on any issue, the PCC chief stated Naidu was raising the issue of liquor scam in order to get mileage on the issue. He said the people of State were losing hopes on Naidu as he failed to play constructive role as a responsible Opposition Leader. “At least now Naidu should realize his responsibilities and help to run the House smoothly,” he said.
Botsa said that the government was ready to give its reply on ACB report if the House runs smoothly. “How can the government give its reply if the opposition continuously disrupts the House and forces Speaker Nadendla Manohar to adjourn it?” he asked.
Stating that no Congress leader was found involved in the liquor scam, he asked Naidu to explain what action he has taken on the TDP members whose names figures in the liquor syndicate. (INN)
