Amaravati: Former minister P Ramasubba Reddy, unhappy over the decision of TDP leadership on inducting his arch political rival, YSRC MLA C Adinarayana Reddy, into the party and giving him, a ministerial berth met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at his residence in Vundavalli on Saturday and reportedly briefed him on the problems he and his supporters were facing from Adinarayana Reddy in Jammalamadugu.
According to party sources, Ramasubba Reddy brought to the notice of party supremo about the awkward situation he is facing in his Jammalamadugu constituency, where his political antagonist is enjoying the power of minister and despite serving the party long since, he didn`t get any post.

Ramasubba Reddy has also complained about the intervention of Adinarayana Reddy in the municipality and creating troubles to his followers. He also made excuses for not attending Mahanadu, due to unavoidable reasons. After paying attention to his concern, theChief Minister reportedly assured him of nominating him for any Corporation as Chairman or MLC post under Governor`s quota, for which Ramasubba Reddy favoured the latter, it is learnt.

When the party offered him MLC post, he rejected the offer and said that both he and his arch political rival couldn`t be accommodated in same party. His followers also put pressure on him to leave the party and join YSRC, from where Adinarayana Reddy switched over his loyalties to TDP.

After coming out from the Chief Minister`s residence, Ramasubba Reddy told the media persons that he is not against to the party nor Chief Minister for the developments that took place in his constituency and due to some personal reasons, he had not participated in the party programmes.
