YSRCP targets Pawan Kalyan dismissing his conduct as childish
The main opposition party in Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress Party is suspicious over political activities of Jana Sena chief and film star Pawan Kalyan and has accused him of playing into the hands of Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party chief Chandrababu Naidu, so as to create confusion among opposition parties and also to bring a division among anti-government votes.

In the last week held two-day session on issues related to AP bifurcation promises, where the film star constituted a three-member Fact Finding Committee to go into different versions of both state and Central governments, YSRCP kept away.

On the other hand, Chandrababu Naidu extended support by deputing two senior IAS officers from his government to provide all related information to the committee. When YSRCP chief Janamohan Reddy proposed to move a no-confidence motion in the Parliament against Narendra Modi government and asked Chandrababu Naidu to take a lead in moving such a resolution in the Lok Sabha, assuring his support, the TDP dismissed it as another drama.

In this context, Jaganmohan Reddy "challenged" Pawan Kalyan to persuade Chandrababu Naidu to support his move. When surprisingly, Pawan Kalyan responded positively, YSRCP leadership seems to be locked in defensive. This was reflected in the party's reaction by condemning his behaviour as "childish". Hitting out at Pawan Kalyan for his childish behaviour, YSR Congress Party has said that he should first elicit the view of his partner Chandrababu Naidu and the ruling TDP before proceeding any further on the Special Category Status (SCS).

Asserting that his party is committed towards SCS and has been engaged in a long drawn battle in various forms and at different venues including national capital, party's spokesperson Ambati Rambabu alleged that it was Chandrababu Naidu who lacks sincerity on the issue and it is childish on the part of Pawan Kalyan to question their leader Jagan Mohan Reddy instead of asking the TDP about their stand on the issue. He pointed out that the issue of no trust motion had first come from the film star and even when Chandrababu Naidu rubbished the matter, Pawan Kalyan's not questioning his partner shows the lopsided and shoddy manner in which the Jana Sena chief has been conducting himself.

"One needs the support of 50 MPs to bring up the no-confidence motion for discussion at least and it becomes the bounden duty of Pawan Kalyan, who campaigned for the TDP-BJP combine during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, to first convince the home team of TDP to get ready for the no-trust vote. Why is the film star shying away from Chandrababu Naidu and asking him to take up the issue and it seems he is afraid of him," Rambabu said.

In the meanwhile, YSRCP MP YV Subba Reddy has already given a notice under Section 184, which has a provision for voting after a short discussion on SCS issue in the Lok Sabha. The party has also announced an agitation in the run-up to the resignations of party MPs over SCS. They propose to picket Collector offices on March 1 in the state and a march to Delhi would be flagged off by Jagan Mohan Reddy on March 3, while the party leaders will hold a protest rally at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on March 5.
