KADAPA: He has done it again.

Health minister D L Ravindra Reddy created a quite a flutter in political circles when he expressed his inability to continue in the existing political system.

Expressing his disappointment over budgetary allocations to various departments, he said that for all departments he was now used to begging the finance department.

There is every need to take up discussion on fund allocations, expenditures and diversion of funds in all departments, he averred.

Saying that he has decided to write to AICC chief Sonia Gandhi regarding budgetary allocations, he said that he could no longer continue in the present political system.

"I will convene a meet with activists of my constituency in May or June and explain to them about present political scenario and will decide whether to continue or come out of politics," he said while speaking to mediapersons at Mydukur MPDO's office on Sunday.

Stating that 'power' had become the focal point in present day politics, he said he cannot entice voters by paying `1,000 per vote and cannot serve the masses.

Indirectly, referring to YSRC president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy he said "These days, leaders seek cabinet posts after becoming MP just the first time.

But, AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi has never aspired to become prime minister and only is serving the nation, though he won the MP's seat twice." Saying that he is continuing in politics only being guided by the spirit and leadership qualities of Sonia and Rahul, he thanked everybody who had supported him during his political career which spanned 35 years.
