Hyderabad: “How can someone who cheated his party founder and own father-in-law have any moral right to criticise Congress president Sonia Gandhi by saying that she is a ‘silent spectator as corruption rages,” questioned All India Congress Committee secretary Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy on Wednesday.
Taking serious objection to Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu’s statement that Sonia Gandhi has become a `silent spectator as corruption runs rampant’ and accusing her of having failed to bring back black money stashed abroad, Mr Sudhakar Reddy said that the TDP chief lacked the moral right to criticise a person who rejected the post of Prime Minister twice.
The senior Congress leader also lashed out at Mr Naidu for insulting Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, who tonsured his head at Tirupati as part of his pledge.
He demanded Mr Naidu’s unconditional apology for making derogatory remarks against Ms Sonia Gandhi and the Chief Minister.
Mr Sudhakar Reddy also alleged that Seemandhra leaders are diverting the attention of the people of Telangana by raising the Regional Councils issue.
Another Congress MLA from Telangana, Gandra Venkata Rao said the Telangana state formation will not be affected if party workers and leaders are given posts. He added the Telangana elected representatives will chalk out their future course of action in the meeting to be held on July 1.(INN)
