TDP Leaders To Complain Against Kodela?

Former Andhra Pradesh Assembly speaker Kodela Sivaprasad Rao is facing the toughest time of his political life. Having lost in the last elections, allegations against Kodela have hit the headlines and it went on till police cases against him, his son and daughter. Now his own party leaders are trying to corner him.

Guntur TDP leaders are demanding to appoint a new in-charge for Sathenapalli constituency. Kodela has worked as MLA and minister in the past but never such allegations and opposition within the party came against him. In 2014 elections, instead of Narasaraopet, Kodela picked up Sathenapalli and went on to become the Assembly speaker of new Andhra Pradesh. However in the last five years his son had showed his dominance in the constituency which few party leaders did not like. There is a rumour in the constituency that the 'Kodela Tax' was also collected from TDP members.

With such accusations mounting against him, TDP leaders are demanding for a new face to lead them in constituency. Very soon key leaders from Guntur are expected to meet Chandrababu Naidu and lodge their protest against Kodela before him. Irrespective of these reports, the TDP chief has immense trust on Kodela. Nevertheless we have to see what action will he take against Kodela.
