Visakhapatnam: Veteran South Indian actor and Telugu Desam leader Kavitha became emotional and left the Mahanadu venue after she was denied a place on the dais during the inaugural session which began at AU Engineering College grounds here on Saturday.

The TDP leader, who claimed that she was State organising secretary came to Mahanadu venue on the invitation from the party and expected that she would be invited on to the dais of the Mahanadu. However, she was shocked after she was denied a place and suggested to sit in the front row in the audience.

Upset with the unexpected incident at the venue, Kavitha left the venue even before the arrival of the Chief Minister and party’s national president N Chandrababu Naidu.

Speaking to newsmen with a choked voice and tears rolling down her cheeks, Kavitha said though she has been working for the TDP for past one decade, she was insulted by the TDP leaders.

“I sat on the floor on several occasions for the party when the TDP was in opposition, now I have no place to sit on the dais when the TDP is in power,’’ Kavitha pointed out.

TDP MLA V Anitha has sent an invitation for the Mahanadu but the leaders claimed that her name was not in the list of the people, who would sit on the dais, she said. She said this was for the second time she was insulted by the TDP leaders. They offended me and I was forced to skip Mahanadu Conclave held in Tirupati and this for the second time it was repeated.

Protocol in charge and Pendurthy MLA Bandaru Satyanarayana Murthy said the dais was planned for 250 members who included the Chief Minister, Ministers, MLAs, party presidents from both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, general secretaries and other important leaders of the party.

“The list was finalised long ago by the senior leaders and nothing can be done now,’’ Murthy said.
