Ramdas Athawale president of the Republican Party of India and also Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment has appealed to the TRS and YSR Congress Party to join the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre for the welfare of people of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Athawale told to media that Telangana Chief Minister and TRS Chief KCR and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and YSR Congress Party leader Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy should give support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Ramdas Athawale also clearly said that NDA with 353 seats in Parliament required no support from any party, its doors were still open for those who want to join. He said it will be in the interest of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh if the ruling parties of both states join the NDA. “I want to tell KCR that there is no meaning in starting another front he said referring to KCR’s plans to form a Federal Front.
Athawale advised Jagan Mohan Reddy not to repeat the mistake committed by Telugu Desam Party Chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu. He said Naidu attacked Modi and left the NDA but people of Andhra Pradesh rejected him and taught him a lesson for leaving NDA.
