Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday announced his decision to float a new political party to uphold the "dignity and prestige of Telugu people".
He told reporters that the name of the party, its policies and other details will be announced at a public meeting on March 12 at Rajahmundry. Three of the six MPs expelled by Congress were present when Kiran Reddy made the announcement. He said since no Telugu with self-respect can vote for Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Telugu Desam Party and the YSR Congress for their role in dividing Andhra Pradesh, they decided to form a new party so that people get an opportunity to cast their votes.
Kiran Reddy said their party would work for upholding the pride of Telugus not just in Seemandhra and Telangana but wherever they live.
