Don’t attack Governor: AP CM cautions his party leaders
HYDERABAD: AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Friday advised his Cabinet colleagues and Telugu Desam leaders to refrain from making any derogatory or humiliating remarks against Governor Narasimhan.
Even since the cash-for-vote scam surfaced, and the two Telugu states were engaged in a slugfest, the TDP ministers and leaders were targeting the governor with unsavory remarks and comments. This seemed to have irked the Centre, and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) conveyed its annoyance to Naidu.
Consequently, Naidu cautioned his ministers and party leaders to restrain themselves and not make any statements or comments that would be belittling the governor and his high office.
Reacting to the charge that the TDP ministers were indulging in unsavory remarks against the governor, TDP Minister Ravula Kishore Babu stoutly denied the same and pointed out that the governor, on the other hand, has been the one who had been humiliating them whenever they went to Raj Bhavan to represent against the TRS Government and its leaders with regard to the alleged cash-for-vote episode.
“In fact the governor pointing an accusing finger at me and asking why I had not issued a clarification to a media report published against me,” he explained. (NSS).
