Telangana TDP's senior-most leader who in fact even worked with party founder NTR, Motkupalli Narasimhulu, allegedly got insulted during the Telanagana TDP's Mahanadu. Motkupalli is feeling insulted as he said he did not receive invitation for the Mahanadu.
Expressing his angst with media, Motkupalli said he had joined TDP in 1982 and worked with NTR till his last breath without expecting any position. He said he has been sailing with Chandrababu for the past 15 years despite being in Opposition in Telangana. However, he said he felt insulted by the party today as he was not invited to Mahanadu. He said he did not jump to TRS or Congress like other TDP leaders only respecting Naidu's request to stay with him.
No Appointment Since 3 Years
Motkupalli further alleged that he has not got appointment of CM Chandrababu Naidu for the last 3 years despite several attempts. "I had earlier told him that I don't need anything except his love. But he couldn't even allot 5 minutes of his time," an emotional Motkupalli told media. He said he has been in TDP only for Chandrababu and said if he had wanted power, he would have jumped into TRS or Congress.
Motkupalli had earlier demanded Chandrababu Naidu to merge the Telangana unit of TDP into TRS. He had made severe comments against Naidu as well which he later retracted. Even when Naidu interacted with some TTDP leaders, Motkupalli stayed away from it. TDP leaders from Telangana and party chief Chandrababu Naidu are yet to react on Motkupalli's fresh statement. It needs to be seen whether the invitation was missed out mistakenly or was a deliberate attempt to keep Motkupalli out of Mahanadu.
