Ministers are attacking and commenting badly on the personality of Ex Minister Nara Lokesh at every given opportunity. They are saying that it is because of lack of confidence in Lokesh capabilities that MLA Vallabhaneni Vamsi and Telugu Yuvatha President Devineni Avinash have shifted their loyalty. YCP is trying hard to convince that CM Jaganmohan Reddy has no role in the party change of TDP leaders.
The TDP is being forced to go on the defensive when rivals dismiss Lokesh as an inefficient and incapable leader. In a latest personal attack, Minister Kodali Nani repeatedly described Lokesh as a ‘Pappu’ (fatty person). He says that the 4 TDP MPs have also joined BJP because of their losing trust in Lokesh.
Nani referred to Vamsi remarks, saying that the TDP is going to sink like a broken boat under Lokesh who became the weakest point. Even Dharmadhikari Satyam, who brought out sunken boat from the Godavari river, will not be able to help the TDP. Nani says Lokesh is flattening TDP by walking over it like a road roller. It’s true that some leaders formed a coterie around Lokesh and hurt other leaders within TDP. If Chandrababu Naidu doesn’t solve this, the party will look more helpless before YCP personal attacks.
