Hyderabad, Aug.2 (NSS): Taking a serious exception over the stand of the Union Home Minister, Mr
P. Chidambaram, that the Assembly has to pass another resolution seeking deletion of Clause 14(f)
of the Presidential Order, the IT Minister, Mr Ponnala Laxmaiah, has said the former’s remarks were
mischievous and amounted to insulting the elected representatives and the resolution passed by the
Assembly already.
Speaking to the media here on Tuesday, Mr Ponnala ridiculed Mr Chidambaram’s stand and
asked whether the 1956 merger of Andhra and Telangana regions needed another resolution to be
passed by the Assembly once again. He also made it clear that the Telangana ministers, who have
resigned from their posts would not step into the Assembly until the 14(F) Clause was deleted. He said
Mr Chidambaram’s remarks would lead to unwarranted consequences in the State.

The BC Welfare Minister, Mr Basvaraju Saraiah, opined that there was no need for another
resolution for deletion of the controversial Clause 14 (f) from the Presidential Order. Both the ministers
discussed the issue at the Panchayat Raj Minister, Mr K Jana Reddy’s residence.
Condemning the remarks of the Primary Education Minister, Dr S. Sailajanath, the Labour
Minister, Mr Danam Nagender, said the former’s remarks were improper and mischievous. He said the
remarks of Dr Sailajanath were not good at the time when the Chief Minister, Mr N Kiran Kumar
Reddy, was sincerely striving to get the 14(F) Clause removed from Presidential order. He also
demanded that the State government conduct the SI recruitment examination only after the
controversial clause was deleted. (NSS)
