Hyderabad, July 29 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh Congress Legislature Party (CLP) today maintained that the party would not face any problem with the proposed 'Grand Alliance' of the non-Congress parties coming up in the State.
Addressing a press conference here, State Agriculture Minister N Raghuveera Reddy alleged that the main intention of the Opposition parties, including the TDP, TRS and CPI(M), was to dislodge the Congress Government in the State, which was ''very impossible''.
He said the Opposition parties in the State had ditched their respective ideologies and proposed a 'grand alliance' as they were fearing the popularity of the Government in view of the various welfare and developmental schemes being implemented by it.
Alleging that the Opposition parties in the State had lost the confidence of the people, he said their main intention was to defeat the Congress by any means with a view to gain power.
The Minister alleged that the Opposition parties were not bothered about the welfare of the people and their needs and development of the State.
Likening the 'grand alliance' to a 'circus alliance', he claimed that the Opposition parties were confused and becoming weaker day by day in the State.
He said the Congress government wanted to protect the welfare of the people and take up various welfare schemes for the benefit of the poor people.
Regarding the separate Telangana issue, he said the matter was pending with AICC president Sonia Gandhi and the party would abide by her decision on the matter.
