Hyderabad, May 4 (NSS): State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar today said he was welcoming former MP and suspended BRS party leader Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy into his party. He called upon all those who are opposing Chief Minister KCR to join the BJP.
Speaking to media persons in Karimnagar after extending support to agitating junior panchayat secretaries, Sanjay Kumar refuted news reports that he has differences of opinion with the party MLA Etala Rajender. He made it clear that all the party leaders were one and added that their only goal was to defeat CM KCR. He said he along with Etala Rajender were inviting all other party leaders to join their party.
On the agitation of the JPS, he said the JPS were agitating for the last seven days and they would fight on their behalf until justice was done to them. He said the indefinite strike of the JPS was justifiable and added that they play an important role in the delivery of Central and State government programs. He said the panchayat secretaries had played an important role in getting several awards to the State from the Central government.
The BJP leader alleged that CM KCR harassed the JPS in the name of four year probation period. Stating that the CM had promised to regularise their services after completion of four years service, he said it was unfortunate that the CM did not fulfil the promise made on the floor of the house. He said several secretaries died due to work related pressure. He asked the CM to take steps for regularisation of the services of the JPS and warned that they would come on roads and fight on behalf of their party till their regularisation. (NSS)
