Tourism Minister - Allagadda MLA Bhuma Akhila Priya is under fire from senior party leaders. If rumours are to be believed, a section of senior TDP leaders are blaming Akhila Priya for the quitting of former minister Shilpa Mohan Reddy who is a senior leader from Kurnool district.
Allegedly, Akhila Priya's over enthusiastic comments about upcoming Nandyala by-election said to have abet Shilpa to quit TDP. Nandyala by-election was facilitated after its sitting MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy died of cardiac arrest.
Even CM Chandrababu Naidu is apparently not happy with the quitting of Shilpa since he is a senior leader in the region and the party incharge of the constituency. Along with Shilpa, several leaders and groups of party workers have also joined YSRCP who is now vowing to defeat TDP in the upcoming election.
All these said to have turned a headache for Naidu. Senior TDP leaders are apparently not able to digest the rise of young Bhuma it seems.
