on Wednesday taken a dig at Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy for reducing his prominence by dividing his health and medical portfolio.
“I’m a loyal party worker and will always abide by the decision of the party. I never craved for party posts and have never done anything wrong. Even If I wasn’t offered cabinet berth, I will be with the Congress party. I care a foot for this job/ministry/portfolio,” said DL.
“Few unfortunate incidents which happened recently has hurt me. The Chief Minister has every right to induct the leaders into the cabinet or sack the ministers, but the way it was done has hurt me. My portfolio was divided with an intention to reduce my prominence. But there is no specific reason, why the CM has taken such step,” he added.
When the media quizzed him about the talk in political circles over his resignation, DL said,”I never said, I would resign”.
