Colse on the heals of Prasuna joining Congress and N Prasanna Reddy revolting against the leadership of Telugu Desam Party, Talasani Srinivasa Yadav, former minister and senior leader of TDP, sent an open letter to Nara Chandrababu Naidu questioning his policies and strategies.
Yadav says that it is a mistake on the part of TDP to leave the integrated state policy and opting for a separate Telangana. He says that it was a strategic mistake to align with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in the recent general elections.
At a press conference in Hyderabad, Srinivasa Yadav asked Naidu to reverse the separate states policy and opt for integrated state so as to triumph in the ensuing Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections.
Yadav did not attend the review meeting being conducted at NTR Bhavan where all other TDP leaders were present. The media is rife with speculation that Yadav struck a deal with Congress to become the Mayor of GHMC on behalf of that party.
