Andhra Pradesh government whip Dronamraju Srinivas has slammed TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu for his "abusive and unparliamentary" public remarks against senior Congress leaders including the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Srinivas alleged that instead of expressing his solidarity with the people protesting against the state's bifurcation for the last 39 days, Naidu was criticising Congress leaders during his 'Atma Gaurava Yatra'.

"Congress leaders and workers will not keep quiet if Naidu continuously criticises Congress leaders and the party.

He will face repercussions from Congress leaders.

"As a responsible opposition leader, who ruled the state as chief minister for eight years, Naidu should not criticise the country's Prime Minister using unparliamentary words.

Disrespecting the country's Prime Minister amounts to disrespecting his own country," the Congress MLA told reporters yesterday.

Srinivas accused Naidu of being responsible for the present situation in Andhra Pradesh, saying TDP was the first political party to hand over a letter to the Prime Minister in favour of bifurcating Andhra Pradesh in 2008.
