Deepak Reddy Sacked
Amaravati: As the image of the party is getting tarnished due to various allegations regarding land scams, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu took a crucial decision. He had sacked AP MLC Deepak Reddy who was arrested in Hyderabad land scam case. The opposition parties in AP attacked Naidu as his MLC got arrested in the land scam. As there was pressure on him to expel Deepak from the party, Naidu is said to have taken this decision.
Incidentally, Deepak Reddy is the nephew of Tadipatri MLA JC Prabhakar Reddy. There are allegations that he illegally occupied lands in Hyderabad. Recently he was arrested. In the TDP coordination committee meeting that took place in the chief minister’s residence, a decision was taken to suspend Deepak Reddy. Party sources said that there was a discussion about Ganta Srinavas Rao also.
Sources said that Naidu warned both Ganta and Ayyannapatrudu not to bicker in public. He is said to have told them that such open criticism would only become a headline ache to the party. It was also decided by Naidu to form a three-member committee to resolve the disputes between them.
Along with it, a discussion was also held about selecting the candidate for Nandhyal by-election.
Meanwhile, political observers say that only time will prove how much effect do Naidu’s warning have on the warring ministers.
