Conveying his displeasure at the way the Telugu Desam's Telangana state unit was functioning, party national president and AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday made it clear that a strong leader was needed for the party to take on the ruling TRS in the state. Reviewing the party function with key leaders of the party's TS unit, Mr Naidu said that lack of coordination would hurt the party.
According to TD sources, the party chief was quite disturbed at the lack of coordination between the three key leaders of TS TD unit — L. Ramana, Errabelli Dayakar Rao and A. Revanth Reddy and their approach to any issue facing the party. Mr Naidu even chided a leader who said that it would be better if he visited the state and gave directions to the party leaders every week.
Later, during his separate interaction with the leaders, issues of internal bickering among party leaders, lack of coordination and interest in running party affairs were mentioned.It was then that Mr Naidu told the leaders that he was already on the lookout for a strong leader to lead the party and take on the TRS.
