Why did Naidu skip meet on Babhli issue, asks Congress

Alleging that TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu lacked sincerity on the controversial Babhli barrage issue, Congress on Friday wondered why he did not attend the all-party meeting convened by the Andhra Pradesh government on Friday.

Hyderabad: Alleging that TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu lacked sincerity on the controversial Babhli barrage issue, Congress on Friday wondered why he did not attend the all-party meeting convened by the Andhra Pradesh government on Friday.
"Chandrababu Naidu enacted a big drama by visiting
Maharashtra. We want to ask him why he did not attend the
all-party meeting convened by the state government. He was
sent a special invitation. It was courtesy and morally correct
for him to attend the meeting," Congress Chief Whip M Bhatti
Vikramarka told reporters.

Congress whip S Sailajanath claimed that Naidu did not
attend an all-party meeting convened by state government to
discuss the controversial Pothireddypadu head regulator issue
which also dealt with providing drinking water. The meeting
took place when Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was Chief Minister.

Asked why Congress MP from Nizamabad Madhu Yashki Goud
was not allowed to attend the meeting, Sailajanath said the
state government has decided as a principle to allow one or
two representatives from each party for the all-party meeting.
"Chief Minister K Rosaiah is an experienced leader. He is
there. Goud, being a Lok Sabha member and can express his
views at various fora," Sailajanath said.

The state government today convened the all-party meeting
to discuss the controversial Babhli issue ahead of the
all-party meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on July
26.
