Did Naidu Move From Society To Caste?

Did Naidu Move From Society To Caste?

Telugu Desam Party leader and Guntur West constituency MLA Maddali Giridhara Rao had raised a very important issue. He wrote an open letter to party chief and former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, the other day.

Giridhara Rao, popularly known as Maddali Giri, recently met chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy. He claimed to have sought some funds for the development of his constituency and the chief minister had ordered the release of Rs 25 crore.

Giri is the second MLA from the TDP to meet the chief minister in the last two months. Earlier, Gannavaram MLA Vallabhaneni Vamsi Mohan, had met the chief minister. The TDP had suspended the MLA alleging his meeting with the chief minister as anti-party activity.

While the party had not taken such an action against Giri, it had appointed another leader as incharge of the Guntur West Constituency, keeping the MLA aside. This would mean that the leadership had kept him aside and would not take him into confidence any more.

The MLA reacted sharply to this action of Chandrababu Naidu and wrote an open letter. He blamed the party chief but had raised one key point in his letter.

He said that party founder late NTR had said “samajame devalayam” which means “society as a whole is the temple”. He said NTR took everyone with him in the party. But found fault with Chandrababu Naidu for taking only one caste leaders into confidence.

According to him, Chandrababu Naidu had turned the party’s slogan of “samajame devalayam” to “samajika vargame devalayam” meaning Naidu’s own caste is now a temple for him.

The MLA said that the party affairs were left into the hands of Naidu’s own caste and they were ignoring him in his constituency despite he being the MLA.

With four decades of political career and with the record of longest serving chief minister for the undivided Andhra Pradesh and first chief minister for the residuary AP, it is unfortunate that Chandrababu Naidu is playing into the hands of his own caste leaders and being rejected by others.

What a downfall, Mr Naidu?
