Hyderabad: TS TD working president A. Revanth Reddy, who has decided to join the Congress, on Wednesday criticised his party colleagues, especially AP ministers and MLAs, for hobnobbing with TS Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and getting favours.
He refused to confirm that he was quitting the TD but dropped hints saying, “There are no parties in TS, only pro-KCR and anti-KCR groups. What is wrong in having relations with the Congress? That is the only political alternative.”
He asked why AP mi-nisters and TD legislators had to enthusiastically applauded Mr Rao at the wedding of Mr P. Sriram, the son of AP minister Pari-tala Sunita, in Ananta-pur district recently.
Rubbishing the claim that it was part of protocol, he asked why AP CM Naidu did not get the same reception when he attended the wedding of TD leader Sitakka’s son in Hyderabad. He said Ms Sunita and AP minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu had taken favours from Mr Rao. “Sriram and TD MLC P. Kesav’s son-in-law are running a bar in Hyderabad, and they got a licence from the TS government to set up a beer manufacturing unit near the city,” he said.
He said Mr Rama-krishnudu had got the favour of a Rs 2,000-crore contract from the Telangana state government....
