The meeting of the TTDP politburo held at NTR Trust Bhavan in Hyderabad on Friday turned out to be a fiasco with party working president A Revanth Reddy remaining silent on the allegations levelled by his party colleagues that he was going to join the Congress party.
First of all, the Telangana TDP leaders did not expect that Revanth would attend the meeting and they thought they would adopt a resolution recommending issuance of a show-cause notice to him on the latest developments. But when Revanth came to the meeting, the Telangana TDP leaders did not understand what to do.
Finally, a couple of seniors like Mothkupalli Narasimhulu and Aravind Kumar Goud started attacking Revanth and sought his explanation as to whether he had met Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and other senior Congress leaders in Delhi and whether he had taken permission of party president N Chandrababu Naidu before meeting them.
They also questioned as to why he had made derogatory remarks against Seemandhra TDP leaders like Yanamala, Kesav and Paritala.
Revanth remained silent for most of the time and said Mothkupalli had no right to question him as he was the party’s working president.
He sought to know whether Mothukupalli had taken permission from Naidu before talking about the alliance with the TRS.
“I don’t need to give you any explanation. Whatever I want to say, I will tell party president directly,” he said.
Peeved at Revanth’s stubborn attitude, Mothkupalli and Goud walked out of the meeting, which ended abruptly.
Telangana TDP leader Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy said it was just an informal meeting and that the Telangana TDP legislature party meeting would be held on October 26 to discuss the issues to be raised in assembly session.
