Will Lokesh Practice What He Preaches?

AP Chief Minister's son and minister Nara Lokesh made sensational comments on Telangana CM KCR. During a media chat, he said that KCR on one hand talks of the unity of the Telugus and talks about "Jago" and "Bhago."

He said KCR did not have an qualm while taking in TDP MLAs, who had won on the strength of the votes of the Andhra settlers. Not  just that, he had done everything he can to woo the Andhra voters during the GHMC elections. He was referring to the TRS MLAs who had defected to the TRS. One of them, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, has even been made a minister.

But, quite ironically, Lokesh and his party, the TDP, is doing the same in AP. It had encouraged as many as 22 YSRCP MLAs to defect to the TDP. Several of them have been made ministers also. Though the YSRCP had lodged several complaints and asked the speaker to disqualify the defectors, Chandrababu Naidu is not relenting. The defectors are still ministers in AP cabinet.

Will Lokesh practice what he preaches?  By the way, he has to wait for KCR to respond to his charges. We know KCR packs quite a power in his punch!!
