TDP Leadership continues to boast about the discipline its leaders and cadre maintain. In reality, There were many instances of Partymen going against the stand taken by the High Command.
Most of the Telangana TDP Leaders are dissatisfied with No. of seats and constituencies allotted by Congress as part of the seat-sharing of Grand Alliance. They also complain about the lack of transparency in the selection of candidates. Protests have been staged at the NTR Trust Bhavan since the past few days by the Aspirants citing these reasons.
As per reliable sources, A TDP Leader convened a meeting with those who were denied tickets in the New MLA Colony. MN Srinivasa Rao (Musheerabad), L Deepak Reddy (Khairatabad), Ali Maskathi, GVR Naidu, Badrinath Yadav and Pradeep Chowdary took part in the meeting. Kuna Venkatesh Goud and BN Reddy who are still hopeful of obtaining ticket had given it a miss. Agitating Leaders complained Party Leadership hasn't honoured the service they have done for years. They are getting ready to take a final call after meeting Chandrababu Naidu.
On the other hand, TDP Senior Leaders were hurt with the ill-treatment meted out to them. Peddireddy who was supposed to be TDP Candidate from Kukatpally began campaigning since few weeks. He, however, was sidelined by TDP Leadership for strengthening ties with the Nandamuri Family. Kukatpally Ticket was allotted to Harikrishna's Daughter Suhasini. Peddireddy was deeply upset with the manner in which he was shown the exit door.
