Hyderabad: The AP Congress Committee will seek explanation from Amalapuram MP GV Harsha Kumar for his outburst against the Chief Minister and Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad two days ago.
Harsha Kumar alleged that Azad was not doing justice to the party in the State and a plot was being hatched by some leaders to see that the BCs, SCs, STs and minorities were distanced from the party.
“I have not heard what the Amalapuram MP has said, but will seek clarification from him on his statement. Whatever he said is our party’s internal matter but no show cause notice has been issued to him,” APCC president B Satyanarayana told reporters here.
When pointed out that even senior Congress leader G Venkata Swamy and Peddapalli MP Dr G Vivekanand expressed same feelings, he declined to comment saying that he was not aware of the same. “All I can say is that only some leaders are quitting the party, not the communities,” he said.
The PCC chief also found fault with film star and TDP leader N Balakrishna for his remarks against PRP leader K Chiranjeevi. “Balakarishna should remember that the TDP president and his brother-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu backstabbed former chief minister NT Rama Rao,” he said.
Expressing confidence that the film star’s active role in politics will not dent the image of the Congress party, he reminded that Balakrishna campaigned for TDP in the last elections and the results were known to the people.
The PCC chief felt that the TDP leaders should not talk ill of the Coordination Committee meeting of the Congress party. Replying to a question, the PCC chief denied rumours that the PRP MLAs were not visiting the Congress party office and asserted that the PRP is very much part of the Congress.
Satyanarayana will visit Miryalguda in Nalgnoda district today to attend a party workers’ meeting. He will also unveil the statue of late Congress leader DS Redya Naik, who was slain by naxalites a decade ago.
