The YSR Congress Party has charged the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) with turning into a “copycat”, saying it was attempting to mimic the YSR Congress in all its programmes.

YSR Congress spokesman Gattu Ramachandra Rao ridiculed TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu's Rythu Poru Bata claiming he was trying to do what the YSR Congress had already done or was planning to do.

Mr. Ramachandra Rao took strong objection to the Telangana TDP leaders' gesture of covering the pylon of the Pranahita Chevella project inaugurated by the late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.
