Ashok Gajapathi Raju Opens Mouth On TDP’s Internal Bickering In Vizianagaram
Visakhapatnam: The Telugu Desam Party senior leader from the Vizianagaram District P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju has at last opened his mouth on the internal bickering in the party in his own district.
When questioned by the press, Gajapathi Raju said he was asked to stay away from the process of electing district president.
“I followed suit. I do not know why they asked me to do so. Together we should have elected the president,” he said. “If we all come together the election will be over.”
Speculations have been running rife that Gajapathi Raju got hurt with the attitude of Ganta Srinivasa Rao who involved in the process of party’s Vizianagaram District election, which has till then been overseen by him. Ganta, being an In-charge minister for Vizianagaram, reportedly asked the senior leader Gajapathi Raju to stay away from the process, citing the party Supremo Chandrababu’s directions.
Ganta wanted to hold a one-to-one meeting with the cadre against the protocol usually followed ever since the party was floated. The Civil Aviation Minister Gajapathi Raju was heard to have proposed D. Jagadish as the prospective president. But against his wish, Ganta has another name in his mind.
Ganta held one-to-one meetings with all the leaders of the first, second and third rung on May 22 but the outcome is still not known, a party worker told. The election process should have been completed on mini Mahanadu held on May 24.
