TDP Lok Sabha members led by Nama Nageswara Rao will meet Speaker Meira Kumar on Monday to complain and ask as to why party chief N Chandrababu Naidu was not invited for the unveiling of the late NTR’s statue in Parliament slated for Tuesday.

The MPs discussed the issue with Naidu on Saturday night. The TDP leadership, which claims the political legacy of the party founder, is unhappy with the way the Speaker has handled the issue. NTR’s daughter and Union Minister Daggubati Purandeswari was given importance by the Speaker much to the dismay of the TDP leaders.

If there is no proper response from the Speaker, TDP MPs will attend the function with Naidu staying back. If invited, Naidu  may take a decision on attending the function on Monday, sources said.

Meanwhile, NTR’s widow Lakshmi Parvati too expressed her displeasure and wondered why she wasn’t invited for the function. She alleged that Purandeswari was sending invitations to persons of her choice. Lakshmi Parvati has decided to dash off letters to AICC president Sonia Gandhi and Meira Kumar over the issue.
