Mahbubnagar: Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu today lashed out at Telangana Rashtra Samiti president K Chandrasekhar Rao for imposing by-elections on people repeatedly for selfish ends.

Naidu also demanded that Congress take decision on Telangana statehood issue immediately.

Addressing rallies in support of TDP candidate for the byelection in Mahbubnagar, Chandrababu said KCR made politics a family affair by roping in his son, daughter and nephew with the sole aim of making money, and he was never concerned with the plight of common people.

"Notes, votes and seats are his only agenda," Chandrababu said. "As an MP he never attends Parliament nor does he visit his constituency (Mahbubnagar). He stays confined to his farm house....Can KCR achieve Telangana state by forcing byelections repeatedly?" the TDP chief said.

Reiterating that TDP was never against Telangana, Chandrababu said neither did he speak anything against the statehood demand nor would he speak anything on the issue in future.

"It is for the ruling Congress to take a call on Telangana. It should take a quick decision on the issue and end the turmoil in the state," he demanded.

Maintaining that Congress and BJP had become "spent forces" at the national level, the former Chief Minister said regional parties had now come to dominate the national political scene. The TDP would play a decisive role in future at the the national level, he said.
