Hyderabad: In a fresh jolt to the TDP, the party senior leader and former minister T Sitaram quit the party on Sunday. Apparently dejected on the party’s stand on the bifurcation of state and its failure to cash in on the ongoing intensified united Andhra movement, Sitaram took the decision to come out of the party.

In a 10 page letter addressed to the party President N Chandrababu Naidu. he said he was not satisfied with the TDP’s stand on the division of state and therefore he was resigning from the party. The party under Naidu’s leadership was much against the wishes and ideology of party founder NT Rama Rao. Since the party failed to protect the self respect of telugu speaking people, he decided to quit the party, Sitaram said in the letter. When asked about his political future, he said he will take a decision after holding a meeting with his followers and supports. Speculations are rife that Sitaram, hailed from Srikakulam district, will join YSR Congress. He is planning to meet YSR party President YS Jaganmohan Reddy very soon, sources said.

Sitaram has been associated with TDP since 1985 and held several posts in the party. He joined PRP before 2009 election and returned TDP after he lost election.
