HYDERABAD: A day after TDP’s claim that several YSRC MLAs were ready to join the Telugu Desam Party to take part in the developmental process in Andhra Pradesh, YSRC MLA Roja on Friday took on the Yellow Party supremo and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu saying that he is trying to divert the attention of the people from the crisis which his party is facing in neighbouring Telangana.
Alleging that TDP MLAs are deserting the party in Telangana only because of inefficiency of the TDP leadership, Roja said the TDP boss is conducting propaganda against the YSRC in AP only to cover up his inability to stop his MLAs in Telangana from deserting the party.
“TDP is a sinking boat. The party is going to face the same fate in AP that it is facing in Telangana. Hence, there is no need for the Opposition MLAs to join the TDP. Why does anyone want to join the TDP when the people of the AP are fed up with Naidu’s regime?” Roja questioned, while addressing mediapersons here.
She further wanted to know why should any MLA of the YSRC be attracted towards the TDP “which is a sinking boat. We have seen in the GHMC elections that the party could get a single seat despite all the tall claims of Naidu that it was he who had developed the city.”
“We have been with YS Jagan Mohan Reddy all along. We were with him even during the time of crises and we feel proud to work under his leadership. Naidu cannot name two persons loyal to him in his 35 years of public life,” she said.
