Congress terms TDP charges baseless

Special Correspondent

Hyderabad: AICC secretaries -- V. Arun Kumar and P. Sudhakar Reddy -- lashed out at the Telugu Desam Party on Friday accusing its leaders of making baseless charges about official machinery misuse.

They said the TDP was getting increasingly restless in playing its role as the main opposition party and was unable to distinguish between the party and the Government.

Talking to reporters, they said it was pitiable that they had taken objection to the display of the colours of the national flag on the poles in the city hosting the 82nd AICC plenary. The TDP had, for that matter, never displayed any nationalistic fervour nor had it any commitment towards the national causes, they added. It was ridiculous that someone objected to the colours of the national flag being painted, they said.

The charge that official machinery was being misused to make the arrangements was also baseless as the APCC had made elaborate arrangements and deployed thousands of volunteers and party workers to take care of the preparations.
