Naidu Preferred Tax Defaulter To BCs

Naidu Preferred Tax Defaulter To BCs

YSR Congress party on Monday took strong exception to Telugu Desam Party president and AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu preferring a 'Kamma' tax defaulter to a Backward Classes leader in the latest Union Cabinet expansion.

The party alleged that Naidu had always been ignoring the weaker sections and has been pampering the elite class.

“Sending the name of Sujana Chowdhary for a berth in the union cabinet once again proves that TDP always favours rich and elite over the weaker sections as the first name it has proposed was that of P Ashok Gajapathi Raju. Once again BCs got a raw deal and TDP seems to have changed the nomenclature of BCs to Business Class,” Party leader Dharmana Krishna Das said.

There was lot of hope among BCs that there would be a representation in the Union Cabinet but their aspirations were shattered with the mercantile policy of Chandrababu Naidu.

“Media that is friendly to TDP itself has published stories in the past about Sujana Chowdhary and his antics in entrepreneurship. He was described as a tax defaulter and there were stories about the fraud he was involved in some import deals and that he was the Chandrababu Naidu’s proxy in Delhi and at the Centre. If a man with such dubious qualities gets a berth in the union cabinet, BCs are very disappointed and unhappy with the choice of TDP,” he said.

He alleged that Naidu had always been pursuing the anti-BC policy which is clear with the two nominations to the union cabinet.

Of the 21 members sent to Rajya Sabha only four or five are BCs. Even in allotting the winning seats to BCs during assembly elections, TDP has lagged behind, he said.
