Former minister Motkupally Narasimhulu, who was expelled from the TS Telugu Desam, has decided to float a party called “raja Vedika and will contest as an independent candidate from Alair Assembly constituency.
He told mediapersons on Wednesday, “TD leaders are alleging that I have colluded with YSRC chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy. I am giving a call to defeat AP Chief Mini-ster N. Chandrababu Naidu.”
He said he would visit the Tirumala temple and pray to Lord Venkateswara to defeat Mr Naidu. Mr Narasimhulu said he was contesting as per the wishes of the people of the Alair constituency. He claimed that TD workers were resigning from the party and extending him support.
