TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu has reportedly taken a stern class to the Working President of party's Telangana sect, A Revanth Reddy for his arbitrary decision of forming an alliance with the Congress party.
For those who don't know, Telangana TDP leaders joined hands with Congress party in the recently-concluded elections to workers unions in Singareni Collieries Company limited. The ruling TRS party affiliated union registered a resounding victory, thumping the union backed by TDP & Congress together.
Taking a serious note of the issue, Chandrababu met Telangana TDP leaders and cautioned them, especially Revanth Reddy on taking such pivotal decisions without consulting him. The AP CM reminded them that Congress has been a long-standing opposition of TDP and that never in the history that the two parties joined forces. He told that a careless move like forming alliance with Congress might hamper their party's image in AP too.
In the two hour long meeting, Naidu asked the TTDP leaders to stop making comments on political alliance with other parties. He also advised them not to provoke ruling party leaders including Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao through controversial comments.
The TDP Supremo also objected the leaders's plan to sail with ruling TRS party. He told them that as KCR weakened the TDP in Telangana by poaching all senior leaders and legislators, it was unethical to join hands with TRS. Naidu asked leaders to learn lessons from the experiences and strengthen the party in Telangana.
