Some senior Telugu Desam (TD) leaders, including deputy chief ministers, K.E.Krishna Murthy and Chinnarajappa, are hurt by the behaviour of minister Akhila Priya, who is ignoring them, it appears. K.E.Krishna is the seniormost leader in Kurnool, sailing with the party since it's inception. He is said to be hurt that the new minister, even though from the same region, has never met him. Also, she did not bother to meet Chinnarajappa, when he visited Kurnool on some events. The attitude of this youngest minister is the talk of the cabinet.
