Motkupalli Narasimhulu no longer in Governors race
  • TDP candidate Motkupalli Narasimhulu was nominated as a candidate for governor’s post as part of its quota in NDA
  • But even after three years in power BJP did not take any action in appointing Motkupalli
  • The Saturday’s announcement of gubernatorial appointments left out the name of Motkupalli which has become a cause of distress among the TDP cadre

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu is dissatisfied with the list of gubernatorial posts announced by the Centre on Saturday as it did not include the name of their nominated candidate Motkupalli Narasimhulu.

After the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) came to power in the centre, TDP as part of its quota in gubernatorial posts suggested the name of Telangana Senior TDP leader Motkupalli Narasimhulu. Even after three years, the Centre did not take any action towards his appointment.

In his recent visit to Hyderabad after being elected as Vice President, M Venkaiah Naidu hinted that Motkupalli would be receiving good news soon. This confirmed his appointment as governor and everyone were eagerly waiting for the good news.

But four days back the Centre finalised the list of governors for five states in which Motkupalli’s name was missing. This caused distress among the TDP leaders for the negligent attitude of the Centre and even Chandrababu is dissatisfied with this turn of events.

The Centre promising the governor’s post to a senior party leader but keeping it pending for such a long time doesn’t give a good sign to the people. Chandrababu is planning to take this issue to the Centre and fight for Motkupalli as reported in Telugu One India.
