TS Assembly Speaker Pocharam reveals an incident with Chandrababu
Telangana Legislative Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy has revealed that TDP national president N Chandrababu Naidu had slapped on his thigh in the presence of ministers and officials in a meeting for opposing privatisation of the Nizam Sugar Factory (NSF). However, Chandrababu, who was then CM, had privatised the NSF, he added.
“At the height of the agitation for Telangana, I requested Chandrababu to announce that the TDP is committed for separate statehood,” he said. Pocharam recalled that the TDP supremo had refused to make a statement. “I tendered resignation to the TDP as Chandrababu was not in favour of Telangana state,” he mentioned.
