Hyderabad, January 7
Telangana Telugu Desam Party working president Revanth Reddy’s comments irked the AP TDP leaders. Local war continuing in Tdp.
Revanth Reddy pointed out that the TRS government is gifting crores of rupees to Andhra people and only lakhs to Telangana, quoting the Rs four crore incentive to PV Singhu, a non-Telanganite. This sparked local war in the party.
Revanth Reddy criticized that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has gifted just Rs 25 lakh to Purna and Anand, who conquered Everest, both of whom belong to Telangana. But he gave Rs 4 crore cash gift and land worth Rs 10 crore to PV Sindhu, when she won the medal in Olympics. He questioned whether KCR has given at least 200 yards to Purna and Anand.
AP TDP leaders are objecting to Revanth’s statements and are surprised to see Sandra Veeriah at his side, who became TTD member in Andhra under Telangana quota. The AP TDP leaders said there is nothing wrong in demanding justice to Telangana sports persons like the mountaineers. But questioning the gift to Sindhu of AP is wrong, they felt. They reminded that other states also announced gifts to Sindhu.
Revanth Reddy’s questions are now bringing several doubts about how Telangana leaders could get posts in AP. Several alleged that Telangana leaders ruled the party during united Andhra Pradesh also.
But even after State bifurcation, a particular community in Khammam and Warangal districts managed to get their share in the residual AP state, arguing that they have their roots in AP.
Party membership was given to Sandra Venkata Veeraiah of Khammam and Sayanna of Hyderabad after state bifurcation. The leaders reminded that Sayanna was replaced by Arikela Narsa Reddy on Nizamabad, after the former joined TRS.
They also reminded that former IPS officer Ravulapati of Khammam district was appointed as Police Housing Corporation Chariman; LVSRK Prasad of Warangal district as AP State Warehousing Corporation Chairman; and former journalist Srinivas of Khammam was appointed as CM OSD at AP Bhavan in New Delhi.
They questioned about the recent appointments of two Telangana leaders in Vijayawada Kanaka Durga temple trust board.
