Hyderabad: The ruckus in Assembly over Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy giving notice under Rule 77 rejecting Telangana bill seems to have come as a blessing in disguise for Telugu Desam president and leader of Opposition, N. Chandrababu Naidu.
Naidu, who planned to speak on the Telangana Bill, could not do so due to pandemonium in the Assembly. “Our stand of equal justice and ‘two eyes’ concept drew flak from both Telangana and Seemandhra MLAs.
While Chief Minister took a Samaikyandhra stand, our leader is seeking justice for both regions,” said a TD legislator Speaking to the media after the TDLP meeting, Naidu said it was “a conspiracy hatched to deny him a chance to speak in the Assembly on Telangana Bill”.
“Telugu Desam has become the target of all parties for political gain. Party MLAs should counter the attack strongly. I suspect that the Chief Minister is acting on the direction of Congress high command,” he alleged.
