HYDERABAD: Refuting the allegations levelled by YSR Congress Party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy that the Congress and the Telugu Desam have colluded with each other to win seats in the next round of bypolls, Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu has countered that it is YSRCP that has an understanding with the ruling party.
Speaking with reporters here on Monday, Naidu said P Sankar Rao was removed from the state cabinet because he had filed a case against Jagan.
Similarly, another minister, DL Ravindra Reddy, was marginalised in Congress politics for fighting against Jagan.
These two were classic examples of how the Congress and YSRCP colluded with each other, he said.
Naidu ridiculed Jagan’s assurance to give a corruption- free governance.
YS Rajasekhara Reddy had amassed wealth and his son was enjoying it, Naidu remarked.
The TDP chief said chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy were attacking the TDP only to cover up their mistakes.
Later, Naidu addressed the protesters at a dharna organised by people’s organisations at Indira Park
