AP Deputy CM KE Krishnamurthy made it clear he isn't going to contest the next elections. 'My Second Son Shyam Babu will contest from my Pathikonda Constituency. Party Chief had already offered his consent,' he shared in an interview.
KE Krishnamurthy responded on the buzz about his rival Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy joining TDP. He confirmed Kotla is willing to join the Ruling Party & TDP Supremo responded positively to the proposal. 'Whoever is willing to support TDP Government, We are gonna welcome them. I am not opposing Kotla's entry into TDP. I didn't even object when Chandrababu Naidu sought my opinion on Kurnool YCP MP Butta Renuka's entry,' he clarified.
When quizzed, KE explained how the rivalry with Kotla's Family began - 'In 1938, There used to be DCC in Congress Party. My Father KE Madanna worked as Director in it. The clashes began after the defeat of Kotla Vijayabhaskar Reddy's Uncle. Though we have no role, Villages got divided into two groups & faction increased. But now, The situation has changed a lot'.
