YSRTP not a political party, but an NGO: Revanth
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee chairman and Malkajgiri Lok Sabha member Anumula Revanth Reddy does not want to attach much importance to the new regional party launched by YS Sharmila, daughter of the former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh combined Dr YS Rajasekhar Reddy.
When asked to respond to Sharmila’s comments accusing Congress of stabbing YSR in the past, Revanth Reddy said he would not care about her comments at all.
“We are the least disturbed by Sharmila and her statements,” he said.
He even said that he would not consider the YSR Telangana party to be a political party at all.
âIt is just a non-governmental organization (NGO). We will not take it seriously. We can react to comments made by political parties and leaders, but not by an NGO activist, âhe said.
Revanth also advised reporters not to take Sharmila’s side seriously as it would help Telangana a lot.
“She is having problems with her brother YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and she is returning her frustration with the Congress party to Telangana,” he said.
In the morning, Sharmila refuted allegations that she started the YSR Telangana party because she was angry with her brother Jagan.
“It’s not correct. If I am angry with my brother, I will stop talking to him, but I will not start a political party, âshe said.
She clarified that she decided to throw a party because she really felt that the Telangana people were the victims of injustice.
âYSRTP was not created for my political interests. I felt it was necessary to start a political party to bring justice to the people of the state,â Sharmila said.
