Talasani flays Naidu For Induction Of YSRC MLAs In His Cabinet
Hyderabad: Telangana Minister for Animal Husbandry & Fisheries Talasani Srinivas Yadav on Sunday criticised Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for offering ministerial posts to four YSRC MLAs, who defected to Telugu Desam.
Reacting strongly on the Cabinet rejig by Naidu at Velagapudi, Yadav ridiculed that Naidu should explain as to why he offered minister posts to the defectors. He flayed Naidu for adopting dual standards on defections which he pretends to oppose.
The minister suggested that words such as honesty, veracity and fire are not suitable for Naidu. It is better for TD chief to abstain from uttering such words as the people know about him and his political career, Yadav said.
Talasani also threw a challenge that he would resign to his post if the four defected MLAs also resign to their posts. The minister took serious exception to Naidu for stating that TD was the most disciplined party whether in power or not. Discipline in TD has gone with its founder and former Chief Minister NT Rama Rao, he charged.
Naidu, who criticised him and CM K Chandrasekhar Rao when he switched loyalties has done the same thing what he opposed earlier, he said. Telugu Desam leaders and activists are not happy with Naidu after the Cabinet rejig while social media is coming out against the TD Chief, he said.
The minister predicted that TD will get poor results in 2019 general elections.
