TDP leaders have lost confidence in Naidu's leadership: YSRCP Hyderabad, May 4: YSR Congress Party on Saturday asked the TDP leadership to desist from depicting its leaders joining the YSRCP as bad commodities and said they are joining the YSRCP following loss of confidence in their party leadership. YSR CP spokesman and MLC Jupudi Prabhakara Rao told newspersons here the TDP leaders, from Amarnath Reddy to former MLC Dadi Veerabhadra Rao, have lost confidence in the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu and have since joined the YSRCP. “Most of the TDP leaders have been vexed with the way the TDP is being run by Naidu who has no concern for the people's problems. They have found sincerity and commitment in Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy and believed he is the only leader who can fight on behalf of the people and hence they are joining our party,” Jupudi commented. Referring to Dadi Veerabhadra Rao's decision to join the YSRCP, he said while Naidu as an opposition leader in the assembly has

compromised on people's issues with the Government, Dadi Veerabhadra Rao as an opposition leader in the Legislative Council never compromised on issues of importance.

The TDP leaders, unable to remain in the party which is being run as a limited company with brokers and businessmen by Naidu, are joining the YSRCP. “I therefore request you to mend your ways if you can or else stop criticizing your leaders joining our party,” he told the TDP leadership. Jupudi observed that TDP lost 51 by-polls, failing to retain deposits in most of them, after the 2009 elections as it has no concern for people's welfare and has continued to support the anti-people Government. Jupudi Prabhakara Rao has condemned the attack on Dalits at Keesara village on Friday and demanded the Government punish the guilty responsible for the attack.
