Gudivada, July 11 (INN): Suspended Telugu desam MLA from Gudivada Kodali Nani on Wednesday demanded explanation from party president N Chandrababu Naidu that why he was suspended from the party.
Talking to media persons at party office in Gudivada in Krishna district, Kodali Nani said that he had not left the Telugu Desam on his own and the party has necked out forcefully.
He accused Naidu of sending loyalists of party founder NTR to pave way for entry of his son Nara Lokesh into party and to give party presidentship.
Nani said that he was suspended unilaterally from the party without giving him any opportunity to explain the reasons for it.
Stating that the party has to serve show cause notice to member before suspension, he alleged that the party did not follow the established democratic norms during his axing.
Condemning suspension, he said that he would question his suspension in the court and described those who led to his exit as pet dogs.
He also denied the charges leveled by MLA devineni Umamaheshwara Rao that he was sold out for Rs 30 crore offered by YSR Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy. He said that he had never taken a single paisa from anybody.
However, he alleged that Naidu has sold Rajya Sabha seats for Rs 300 crore.
He also asked Naidu how much money he received for sending his brother to Congress fold.
If it was matter of money, he said that he would have joined the Congress party when former chief minister YSR was alive.
Alleging Naidu back stabbed party founder NTR, he alleged that now he was eliminating all loyalists of NTR to pave way for Lokesh to reign the party leadership.
Lauding film star Jr NTR and N Harikrishna for giving him ticket of Gudivada two times, he said that he redeemed his debt to the two.
Nani said that he won two times on his own strength and not due to charisma of Naidu.
Lauding leadership qualities of Jagan, Nani said that he was ready to work under him if provided an opportunity to him.(INN)
