Vijayawada: Official spokesperson of the YSR Congress party (YSRCP) TJR Sudhakar Babu mocked Congress president Rahul Gandhi for forging an alliance with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), a party of thugs. He commented that Rahul Gandhi committed political suicide by joining hands with Chandrababu Naidu.

Addressing a press conference here at the party's Central office on Saturday, Sudhakar Babu recalled that the Congress leaders released a charge-sheet against Chandrababu. "How could they form an alliance with the TDP?" Rahul Gandhi, who is now associated with Chandrababu and Revanth Reddy, does not have a right to criticize the YSRCP leaders, he added.

Stating that he never imagined the grandson of former PM Indira Gandhi would make comments in bad taste against the family of late CM Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy, he warned Rahul Gandhi to speak cautiously when it comes to Dr YSR's family. He asked whether there would be cases against the YSRCP chief had the party been a friendly ally to the BJP.

"YS Jagan stayed strong when the Congress and TDP implicated him in false cases after the death of late Dr. YSR. It is only your partner Chandrababu, who is afraid of the CBI," he said, recalling that YS Jagan stood by his word to meet the families that were affected by the death of the mass leader.

The YSRCP spokesperson further said it was hilarious to listen to Rahul Gandhi's words on corruption sitting next to Chandrababu, who had snatched away 33,000 acres of land from the farmers. Rahul Gandhi should ask his mother on Dr. YSR's efforts to build the Shamshabad airport.
