The Telugu Desam Party has taken strong exception to Andhra Pradesh Governor E S L Narasimhan's meetings with Congress top leaders in New Delhi and questioned if it was part of his official duties.
Leader of Opposition in AP Legislative Council and TDP politburo member Yanamala Ramakrishnudu criticised the governor for meeting AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh in New Delhi yesterday. "Why should the governor go to Digvijay's residence and brief him? Is it part of governor's official duties?," Yanamala questioned.
He alleged the governor was "doing the rounds of Congress leaders' houses" carrying official files. "Is the governor going to decide the fate of 8.47 crore Telugu people?," Yanamala said.
The TDP leader alleged that the governor was giving frequent appointments to YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. "How can the governor give frequent appointments to the prime accused in several criminal cases? People are thinking that the governor himself is acting like a mediator between Jagan and Sonia Gandhi," Yanamala alleged.
