Criticism of political rivals has crossed all limits of decency in Andhra Pradesh these days.
Leaders are indulging in personal attacks using abusive language against their rivals – whether it is Bonda Uma and Buddha Venkanna of Telugu Desam Party or R K Roja of YSR Congress or Kanna Lakshminarayana of Bharatiya Janata Party.
On Thursday, it was the turn of YSR Congress party’s Rajya Sabha member V Vijay Sai Reddy who used a vulgar word against TDP president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
He described Naidu as “fourth gender,” a very serious comment by any politician.
“He is neither male nor female. He is not even a transgender, but a fourth gender. He is like the one who plays a dual role in natural sexual activity,” Sai Reddy said.
Apparently, he is referring to Naidu’s attack on the BJP by moving a no-confidence motion against the Centre, while maintaining friendly relations with the party secretly.
Reacting to Sai Reddy’s comments against Naidu, TDP MLA Buddha Venkanna said the YSRC MP had lost all his brains so much that he did not understand what he was speaking.
“He is licking the boots of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. That is why, he is not tolerating our no-confidence motion against the Centre,” he criticised.
On the other hand, TDP general secretary and minister for IT Nara Lokesh took pot shots at YSRC president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy for heckling at the No. 1 rank obtained by the Naidu government in Ease of Doing Business.
Lokesh, in his official Twitter account tweeted on Thursday: “How can we expect Dongabbai to know about getting a rank in #EoDB. Ask him about corruption or deal-making in the backend, he will know. No wonder he has questions about AP’s No 1 rank and CBI has questions about his No 1 rank in corruption. #CorruptionKingJagan”.
