‘A.P. election schedule fixed at KCR’s behest’

A day after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) asserted that it is fully ready to face the general elections, party State president Kimidi Kala Venkata Rao has alleged that Andhra Pradesh is going for election in phase I instead of phase VII due to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). The TDP, however, will come out with flying colours, he has said in an open letter written to TRS president and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.

Mr. Venkata Rao, in his letter on Monday, alleged, “The TRS mounted pressure on the Election Commission of India (ECI) through the Central government to help the YSR Congress Party president.” The TRS and the YSRCP joined hands to ensure that the elections in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana were conducted in phase I.

Both Mr. Reddy and Mr. Chandraskhar Rao were against the interests of Andhra Pradesh. The TRS wanted its feudatory prince to be crowned in Andhra Pradesh, he said.

Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao was experienced in implementing the strategy to delete names of voters of his choice.

‘Diversionary tactics’

The TRS could retain power due to the deletion of many names from voters’ list. Mr. Chandraskhar Rao was, now, helping the YSRCP in replicating the same in Andhra Pradesh. The data theft issue has been brought out to divert people’s attention, he said.

Nevertheless, the TRS president can’t influence the AP politics. The welfare of party activists was important for the TDP. Hence, the data of the party workers was collected. The information such as blood group, insurance, their relation with the party and so on were collected, he explained.

Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao filed cases by proclaiming the TDP’s data as government data. His dream of helping Mr. Reddy through the data would never come true. “Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu is working hard for the development of Andhra Pradesh as five crore Telugu people’s future as his responsibility,” he added.
