Hyderabad: Accusing Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu of having failed to discharge his responsibility as the Leader of the Opposition, YSR Congress Party spokesman Ambati Rambabu on Saturday alleged that the former chief minister had ‘fixed the match’ with Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to force his party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy to reveal his strength.
Talking to media persons at Sagar Society, Mr Rambabu alleged that Mr Naidu totally failed in discharging responsibilities as Leader of the Opposition and had conspired with Congress government to expose the strength of Y S R Congress MLAs during the elections for Speaker and Deputy speaker’s posts.
Responding to the No Confidence Motion Notice given by the TDP on farmers’ issues, Mr Rambabu said that Mr Naidu’s commitment towards farmers is suspect and the only reason he could have introduced the Motion was to target Mr Jaganmohan Reddy and to get political mileage.
Reacting on fielding of TDP candidate for Speaker and Deputy Speaker’s posts, violating a long standing tradition, Mr Rambabu said that it was a ploy by Mr Naidu to display the Congress strength to Mr Jaganmohan Reddy.
“Mr Naidu is more or less acting like he is on the Congress team. He is unable to manage the TDP and one day, he would merge his party in the Congress on the lines of Praja Rajyam Party leader K Chiranjeevi,” Mr Rambabu stated.
He alleged that both Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and TDP leader Naidu enacting a drama to save their positions to get political mileage on issues.(INN)
