Naidu walks, while his MLCs holiday in Bali!

Hyderabad: Undeterred by the doctors' advise against continuing his Vastunna MeekosamYatra any further, 63-year-old TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu refused to give up it up half way. Thanks to his indomitable spirit, he went on walking miles and miles to reach out to the masses braving the gruelling summer. He made a record of sorts by completing some 2,700 km in over seven months time. At a time when his marathon exercise started generating compassion and concern for the former Chief Minister, some of the principal functionaries and elected representative from his party show scant regard for the man all set to achieve a rare feat. Instead of joining him in the Yatra and inspiring the cadres that are accompanying him all the way, they sought to beat the heat by spending time in exotic places overseas. As many as 10 TDP MLCs, along with family members, have left for Indonesia on a five-day holiday tour to Bali islands in Indonesia. They included Y Babu Rajendra Prasad, A Narsa Reddy, Gangadhar Goud, China Rajappa, B Venkateswarlu, M Govind Reddy, A Rammohan, P Nageshwara Rao, B Laxminarayana, and CH Vara Prasad. The foreign visit of the MLCs remained so far a secret affair, party sources said. The MLCs flew to Indonesia on Friday. Many senior leaders in the party were also kept in the dark about their tour to Indonesia until they were contacted on phone about the party programmes organised in their respective constituencies in the next one week. The senior leaders said that it was certainly not the right time for leaders to go on holiday tour when the political scene was hotting up in the state amid strong speculation that early general elections were inevitable. Naidu was continuing his yatra without caring for his health with a view to winning as many seats as possible in the next election, while these MLCs preferred to spend their time on foreign holidays.
