TDP urges Chandrababu Naidu to take action against MLA Revanth Reddy over reports on Congress switch

Hyderabad: The TDP's Telangana unit on Wednesday asked party chief N Chandrababu Naidu to take action against its working president A Revanth Reddy, who is allegedly making moves to switch over to the Congress.

TDP Telangana president L Ramana said a "final report" has been submitted to Naidu on the issue of Reddy, who is also an MLA.

"Telangana TDP would suffer if Revanth Reddy, who is moving closely with Congress' top leaders, continued as TDP's working president and Telangana TDP legislature party leader," Ramana said in a statement.

Naidu, the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, is currently abroad on an official visit.

Ramana said Reddy has been directed not to take up any programmes as TDP Telangana working president and party's floor leader in the Legislative Assembly.

The Telangana unit of TDP has been hit by reports of Reddy meeting Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi as part of his plans to switch over to the party.

Congress leaders like former MP V Hanumantha Rao had also claimed that Reddy did meet Gandhi. Reddy had condemned the reports but Ramana on Tuesday said there is no clarity in the remarks.

Reddy should issue legal notices to Congress leaders as their comments hurt him and also the party, Ramana had said.

Ramana also said on Wednesday that the TDP and its NDA ally BJP's leaders would meet on Thursday to discuss the legislature session beginning on 27 October.
