Hyderabad: Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan on Wednesday asked Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao not to support YSRC president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy or he would start an agitation by taking inspiration from the Telangana agitation for social justice.
"I may not become a good politician, but I am a fighter and if the support of KCR continues to Jagan I will leave politics and start an agitation seeking justice for the people," Mr Kalyan said.
He asked Mr Rao to allow the people of AP to live peacefully. Mr Kalyan recalled that when Mr Rao had launched the statehood agitation, then Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy had humiliated him by asking how he would achieve Telangana when not even 10 people were supporting him.
He reminded that when YSRC president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy had started Odarpu yatra after the death of Dr Rajasekhar Reddy, the people of Telangana had attacked him and prevented him from touring the region.
Stating that Mr Rao supported people who had openly abused him, Mr Kalyan alleged that Mr Rao was not serving social justice.
Maintaining that Telangana had taught him political wisdom and Karimnagar had given him re-birth, Mr Kalyan said though a new state had been created the people were not liberated from exploitation of and suppression by the upper castes.
He said the dream of the Telangana people of having a Dalit Chief Minister not fulfilled and he did not want to go into the reasons why Mr Rao had not kept his promise.
While praising BSP chief Mayawati, an alliance partner of the Jana Sena, he said she was not Ms Kavitha, the daughter of Mr Rao but the daughter of a postal clerk and had risen to the position by hard work.
He appealed the Jana Sena and BSP workers to work to make Ms Mayawati the Prime Minister. Ms Mayawati said the population of the community which Mr Rao belonged was less than two per cent in Telangana, whereas the SC, ST and OBC population was more than 70 per cent.
She appealed to the SC, ST, BC and minority communities to united and make use of the political platform provided by the late Kanshi Ram to help the BSP to gain political power....
