The controversy over a picture that depicted general secretary of TDP's central committee Nara Lokesh on the dais when senior party member and Deputy Chief Minister Nimmakayala Chinna Rajappa standing in front of him over a conversation has received criticism from all quarters and also led to removal of picture from Lokesh's Facebook page.
Reacting to it, the Deputy CM on Saturday condemned the social media rage against the picture and also slammed at YSR Congress Party leaders Botsa Satyanarayana and Ambati Rambabu for inappropriate accusation. Chinna Rajappa, who was in Raja Mahendravaram to inaugurate the national level chess championship, spoke to media over the controversial picture and clarified the issue.
In an attempt to tell that it's completely an incorrect view drawn from the picture snapped at training sessions for TDP cadre, Chinna Rajappa said "Even Nara Chandrababu Naidu has never dared to reproach or degrade me" and went on to demand proofs for YSRCP's false allegations. Demanding an answer for 'what they have been doing for Kapu community over the years', the senior leader also launched an attack on Kapu leaders Mudragada Padmanabham, Botsa Satyanarayana, Dasari Narayana Rao and Chiranjeevi.
Chinna Rajappa, MLA from Peddapuram assembly constituency of East Godavari district, has been a loyal worker of Telugu Desham party from more than two decades and he's now handling the major portfolios like Home Ministry, Deputy CM and Disaster Management.
