Panchayat Raj Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy came down heavily on Naidu and a section of media for distorting his comments on defections and slammed Raghurama Krishnam Raju for playing to the tunes of the Opposition leader.
Speaking to reporters at his residence here on Thursday, the Minister said a section of media is deliberately spreading false propaganda to mislead people by distorting his comments on defections. He recalled the conspiracies and cheap tactics of Naidu for his political mileage and said a section of media has been working for the interests of the opposition leader.
Stating that YSRCP rebel MP Raghu Rama Krishnam Raju cannot even win as ward member, the Minister slammed him for acting against the interests of YSRCP, in spite of being elected as MP. He said Raju has been acting as per the script of Naidu and has become the mouthpiece of the yellow media to spread false propaganda.
The Minister recalled that Raju is involved in cheating banks and challenged the rebel MP to resign from his post and seek reelection and prove himself. He invited the rebel MP to attend CLP meetings of YSRCP and raise his voice in the meeting.
