HYDERABAD: The debate on special category status in the Assembly on Tuesday seems to have provided another opportunity to the TDP members, who are expecting a berth in the possible Cabinet reshuffle, to compete each other in hurling choicest invectives at the Leader of Opposition and YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

When Jagan started targeting Naidu, senior TDP member D Narendra Kumar and his colleague K Ravi Kumar, who are understood to be aspiring to become ministers, went ballistic at Jagan. “You are facing corruption charges. You have to attend court every Friday. You have no moral right to make allegations against Chief Minister, who is striving hard for the development of the State,” Narendra  lambasted the YSRC chief when the latter was attacking Naidu on ‘cash-for-vote’ issue.

The YSRC chief was trying to create hurdles in securing special status for the State by projecting that the State government had given up the demand for special status and was more interested in special package, he said.

Ravi Kumar too came down heavily on Jagan alleging that he had looted the State when his father YS Rajasekhara Reddy was the chief minister. The YSRC chief had colluded with Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to damage the interests of AP. “At a time when Jagan should stand by the State’s cause, he is conspiring with neighbouring State to damage AP’s interests,” he alleged.

Not lagging behind, Atchan Naidu claimed he had proof that Jagan was behind the ‘cash-for-vote’ scam. “I have proof that the cash-for- vote scam was the game plan of Jagan and TRS leaders,” he alleged.
