Why's Naidu not sending Revanth letter to Speaker?

Why's Naidu not sending Revanth letter to Speaker?

It has been two days since Telangana Telugu Desam Party leader and Kodangal MLA A Revanth Reddy sent his resignation letter to party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

There is no issue over Revanth’s resignation from the primary membership of the party because it does not matter for him whether Naidu accepts his resignation or not, as he is anyway joining the Congress party on October 31.

But what is surprising is that Naidu has been sitting over Revanth’s letter saying he was resigning from the assembly membership as well.

Revanth submitted the resignation letter in the Speaker’s format, but he did not cleverly send it directly to the Speaker but to the party president asking him to forwards the same to the Speaker.

This has landed Naidu in a piquant situation. As a rule, he has to forward the resignation letter to the Speaker and ask him to accept the same. Alternatively, he should forward the letter of Revanth resigning from the party to the Speaker, asking him to disqualify Revanth.

But the TDP president is not doing either of it. If he forwards Revanth's resignation to the Telangana assembly Speaker, he will be under pressure to seek the resignations of 21 YSRC MLAs who defected to the TDP in Andhra Pradesh.

In Telangana, too, he should ask the TDP MLAs who defected to the TRS, to resign from their posts.

Naidu seems to be caught in a fix now and he cannot act against Revanth and if he does, he will be exposed.
