Former minister and educationist Narayana's arrest in connection with the leakage of the Class X question papers has evoked strong response from the TDP circles. Everyone slammed the decision and said it was politically motivated. Many said this was a stark case of political vendetta against a political rival.

The arrest had a tragic element as May 10 was the day when Dr Narayana lost his son. His arrest was made on his son's death anniversary. Naturally, every TDP worker was unhappy and was vocal in criticising the YSRCP government. But, one politician in the TDP remained totally silent. He is none other than Bheemili MLA and former minister Ganta Srinivas Rao. Interestingly, Ganta is a close relative of Dr Narayana.

In fact, he has given his son in marriage to Narayana's  daughter. Yet, Ganta remained totally silent. There was not even a single statement or even a social media post from Ganta Srinivasa Rao. Ganta is still in the TDP and has recently become active in TDP affairs. Yet, he chose not to respond on the arrest of Narayana.

Those who know Ganta Srinivasa Rao say that this is typical Ganta Srinivasa Rao mark move. He is quite inscrutable and does not necessarily respond to every development. However, his silence has become a topic of hot debate within the party.
