Amaravati: For TDP Rajya Sabha member Kanakamedala Ravindra Kumar, it is probably time for him to repay gratitude to his master.

Chandrababu Naidu, contending that Babli would hurt the interests of Telangana farmers ahead of byelections to 12 Telangana seats vacated by 10 TRS, one BJP and one TDP MLAs in protest against the terms of reference of Justice BN Krishna committee which was constituted to recommend solution to the demand for bifurcation of the state.

According to Advocate-General Dammalapati Srinivasa Rao, the legal experts of the state government will attend the court. "The government has not yet received any non-bailable arrest warrant against Chandrababu Naidu," he said. He however was cagey about Ravindra Kumar representing Naidu, though reliable sources confirmed Ravindra Kumar taking up the responsibility.

Meanwhile, Housing Minister K Srinivasulu said that the state government will lodge a recall petition on this case. "The TDP cadres are of the opinion that the BJP was trying to intimidate Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP through government agencies and courts.
