Criticising as wicked and crooked, media blitz of TDP that many more elected representatives are looking towards it, YSR Congress party today said such false notions should be dispelled and Chandrababu Naidu has to concentrate on his poll promises and development of the new state and has affirmed that there would be no defections.

'There could be a bad egg in the basket and TDP blowing it out of proportion only shows that it is afraid of facing the reality and is not in a position to take up the poll promises and as a cover-up bid is trying to engineer defections to divert the attention of the people, but we, as a responsible opposition, will fight for the cause of the people and will act as a sentinel to ensure that Chandrababu Naidu takes up the loan waiver to farmers, and other promises, failing which we will mobilize public opinion against the government,' Party MLA G Srikanth Reddy and MP P Mithun Reddy said in a joint press conference here.

Objecting to the Party MP from Nandyal shifting sides, they said: 'there is no truth in his argument of shifting sides for the sake of development of his constituency but it is only to further his business interests.

There may be some minor hiccups but no one will leave the Party as we are elected on YSRCP party symbol and with the faith people have reposed in the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, they claimed.

They strongly said, 'We will play the role of a viable opposition party and force the ruling party to take up development works and at the same time ensure that Chandrababu Naidu will fulfill all his poll promises.

At a time when farmers, students, employees and other sections are in a quandary about their future in wake of the creation of a new state and question of capital city lying in a state of stalemate, TDP should give them hope and instill confidence at this hour of crisis but Chandrababu Naidu on the other hand seems to be interested in orchestrating defections which shows that his priorities lies elsewhere.

His(Naidu) plans will not succeed as all those who were elected on YSRCP ticket will be loyal to the Party and will expose the misdeeds of TDP in the next five years while taking up people's issues, they said.

With a couple of leaders going out, it does not affect our party in any way and we will be in the forefront to fight on people's issues, they said.

There is no truth in the news appearing in a section of press that some leaders from Chittoor district will cross over. "We are firmly with YSRCP and will work under the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy", they added.
