TDP MLC Babu Rajendra Prasad has thrown an open challenge to CM Jagan Mohan Reddy and YSRCP MPs. Speaking at a discussion on the Special Category Status in Legislative Council, Babu Rajendra Prasad asked the 23 MPs of YSRCP to resign protesting against the Centre for not according SCS to AP. Rajendra Prasad said the 3 TDP MPs are willing to tender resignation to their MP posts demanding SCS for AP. He said TDP MPs are ready and asked whether YSRCP MPs are ready to submit their resignations now.
Babu Rajendra Prasad said TDP MPs are willing to fight for the state and willing to sacrifice for the state. He asked YCP MPs to join TDP MPs, so that all the 25 MPs can submit resignation to Lok Sabha, the house which is not fulfilling the genuine demands of the state.
To this challenge of TDP, YCP leaders were on back foot. It can be noted that 5 MPs of YCP had resigned in previous Lok Sabha against the Centre's delay in granting SCS to AP. While TDP had alleged YCP MPs as "resignation drama" to favour ruling BJP, now TDP itself bringing out the proposal to resign has come as a shocker to Jagan.
