BRS sacks student leader who praised Srinivasa Reddy
The removal of Chikati Karthik from the post of secretary of BRS student wing of Bhadradri-Kothagudem district proved that the party high command disowned former MP Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy. Tatha Madhu, BRS Khammam district president, announced the removal of Karthik from the post after the student leader praised Ponguleti. Then, the question arose, “How can BRS leadership remove the student leader from the post when the party had not expelled Ponguleti so far?” It means the student leader praised a BRS leader and what is wrong with it? When asked about it, Tatha Madhu said, “The former MP did not have primary membership in BRS or TRS. I checked in the party on his membership and we did not find his name. Because of this, Ponguleti is not a member of BRS”. He said that the party leaders were made aware of the issue and they started a campaign against Ponguleti.
