Senior YSRCP leaders continued to fire salvos against the TDP for protesting against renaming of NTR University of Health Sciences (NTRUSH) as Dr. YSR University of Health Sciences.
Minister for Housing Jogi Ramesh and Minister for Social Welfare M. Nagarjuna, in separate press conferences at Tadepalli, slammed TDP MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna for his tweet that “NTR is not a mere name to change or remove.”
“Mr. Balakrishna should think which side his gun is aimed at. It is ironic that he has reacted to the issue three days after the Bill is passed. It is a shame that he has chosen to support N. Chandrababu Naidu, who backstabbed NTR,” said Mr. Jogi Ramesh.
Mr. Nagarjuna tweeted that renaming Krishna district after NTR was the biggest tribute to the former Chief Minister, and wondered why Mr. Naidu could not think of such a move during his tenure.
“Which is bigger? A district, or a university? Why is Mr. Balakrishna reacting after three days? Why was he not present in the House when the Bill was passed?” questioned Mr. Nagarjuna.
