Hyderabad: Telangana TDP working president A Revanth Reddy on Monday strongly defended the party's decision of not contesting the byelections to Palair Assembly segment in Khammam district.
Addressing the media here, Revanth said that TDP had withdrawn from the contest and decided to support Congress nominee Sucharitha Reddy, the widow of late MLA Ramreddy Venkat Reddy, to maintain the tradition of unanimous elections of any member of the family in case of death of sitting MLA.
He said there were several precedents wherein unanimous elections were ensured. However, he said that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao broke the tradition. Revanth also said that TDP believes in morals and ethics. Contrary to this, he alleged that TRS never believed in ethics or morals.
TRS took BJP's support to win MLC elections in 2011 and later, it sought help from MIM. He said that KCR keeps changing his colours depending upon the situations. The TDP leader asked as to why Tummala Nageshwara Rao, who is already a MLC and Minister, was pushed into the fray in Palair bypoll.x
