In a piquant situation, TRS MP from Nizamabad K Kavitha today complained to TRS supremo and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao against Rajya Sabha MP Dharmapuri Srinivas, who had defected to the TRS from the Congress, for "deception and anti-TRS activities".
In a letter addressed to the TRS president and Telangana Chief Minister, Kavitha apprised him of the "conspiracies and anti-party activities" by Srinivas, and sought disciplinary action against him.
Though the TRS had welcomed him into the party in good faith assuming he would strengthen it, DS had encouraged his son to join the BJP, and was also trying to maintain cordial relations with the Congress, she said in her letter.
She submitted the same letter to party Nizamabad TRS in-charge Tula Uma.
Speaking to mediapersons later, Kavitha accused Srinivas of forcing the TRS rank and file to support the BJP. The party was being destroyed by him in the district, and other leaders were being taken to task instead, she complained.
DS, who had failed to win the hearts of the local people and was defeated in the MLA elections, had still been given a cabinet rank position as a government advisor and was later elevated by the TRS to an MP, she said. Despite the respect accorded to him, however, Srinivas was indulging in anti-TRS activities, and the TRS supremo now needed to take disciplinary action against him, Kavitha said.
"Srinivas was inducted into the TRS fold after the latter made repeated pleas. To make best use of his experience, he was made a Government advisor with cabinet rank, and was later given a Rajya Sabha set out of respect for his age and seniority in politics. However, Srinivas never worked for the party development, and instead resorted to corrupt practices as well as creating rifts between TRS leaders for his personal benefits," Kavitha and other TRS leaders said.
Srinivas was trying to weaken the party among the public and was working against the party interests in favour of his son Arvind who had joined the BJP about a year ago, they alleged.
"When Arvind was using abusive language against TRS leaders Srinivas kept silent, and was also trying to intimidate loyal activists of the TRS into supporting his son," they claimed. They further complained that rather than being loyal to the party, Srinivas was now making attempts to return to the Congress.
Kavitha also alleged that Srinivas, who was known for committing irregularities and minting illegal money, was unable to bear the TRS which was free from corruption.
