Rajya Sabha MP of the BJP (who joined from the TDP in June) YS Chowdary has been accused of being a covert for Chandrababu Naidu in the saffron party. He has also been accused of moving to the BJP only to protect himself from ED and CBI cases. It is also alleged that he has been tasked with breaking the TDP Legislature party to enable the BJP to have a presence in the Andhra Pradesh assembly.
But Chowdary’s sharp criticism is reserved for Jaganmohan Reddy’s first 100 days in office, that he says has been disappointing. He says he cannot get himself to give the new chief minister even one mark out of ten for his governance so far.
Watch this exclusive interview with YS Chowdary, speaking to T S Sudhir, only on Filter Kaapi, where he opens up on Jagan, Chandrababu Naidu, Nara Lokesh and the BJP leadership.
