VIJAYAWADA:In an interesting development, Supreme Court judgement against AIADMK chief VK Sasikala came up for discussion at the Telugu Desam Party Coordination Committee meeting chaired by AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at his residence in Undavalli near here on Tuesday.

Naidu, referring to the apex court sentencing Sasikala to four years of imprisonment for corruption of `66 crore, wondered how many years should those who amassed illegal wealth of nearly `1 lakh crore should get, in an oblique reference to YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy even as TDP leaders held press conferences outside predicting Sasikala’s fate for him.
At the coordination committee meeting, members apprised the chief minister that this was a hot debate on social media now and Naidu in response said that one should be aware of the consequences of indulging in corruption, referring to the possibility of Sasikala being disqualified from contesting for public office for a period of six years.
Naidu said the Supreme Court’s verdict was changing political equations in Tamil Nadu and explained how seriously corruption charges are being dealt by courts.
Naidu sets sights on ‘19 polls
Naidu also dwelt at length with the party’s organisational issues and said that he would be spending more time on party affairs, as elections were only two-and-a-half years away from now.
At the party coordination committee meeting held at his residence at Undavalli, the Chief Minister is reported to have said that he would spend at least three to four hours, sorting out issues in the party so that it would be well oiled and cohesive organisation by the time polls arrive.
The AP CM is understood to have been unhappy over lethargic attitude of some ministers in attending to issues that concern party in districts. “You are not able to keep pace with me. You are too slow. I will henceforth make you also run,” the Chief Minister is reported to have said.
He wanted the minister or ministers in a district, minister in-charge of the district and president of the party district unit to form into committees and address the issues the party is facing at the ground level.
