Naidu tried for tie-up with TRS, alleges Roja

YSRCP MLA R.K. Roja addressing the media in Vijayawada on Sunday.  

YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) MLA R.K. Roja has alleged that Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu discussed a possible alliance with the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) at the residence of his brother-in-law Nandamuri Harikrishna when his (Harikrishna) body was being prepared for the last rites.

Mr. Naidu gave a call in Telangana to defeat the MLAs who changed parties unmindful of the fact that his party has many such turncoats in Andhra Pradesh, ridiculed Ms. Roja.

Addressing the media here on Sunday, Ms. Roja said Mr. Naidu would say that the MLAs who crossed into his camp from the YSRCP were attracted by his leadership and development agenda and describe the switching of loyalties in Telangana as unethical.

‘Double standards’

His (Mr. Naidu’s) double standards stood exposed and it was high time that the people of Telangana taught him a lesson.

Ms. Roja said Mr. Naidu could have made Harikrishna’s sons Kalyan Ram and junior NTR MLCs and Ministers thereafter if he had affection for their family.

The nomination of Nandamuri Suhasini for the Assembly elections in Telangana was a part of his (Mr. Naidu) selfish political agenda.

Hindupur MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna was silent when the YSRCP MLAs defected to the Telugu desam Party , but was now criticising those who did a similar thing in Telangana.

Dig at Pawan

Ms. Roja said Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan had no moral right to criticise YSRCP chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy. Mr. Pawan Kalyan was no match to Mr. Reddy, the YSRCP leader added.
