Hyderabad, May 25: The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) Friday suspended its former MP M.V. Mysoora Reddy for indiscipline after he met YSR Congress Party leader Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.
TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu announced the suspension.
Mysoora Reddy, a former home minister, drove to Jagan’s residence and met him for an hour before the latter went to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) office over corruption cases against him.
Mysoora Reddy, who contested against Jagan and lost the 2011 Lok Sabha by-election at Kadapa, has been sulking ever since the TDP did not renominate him for the Rajya Sabha this year.
Mysoora Reddy had quit the Congress and joined the TDP before the 2004 general elections due to differences with Jagan’s father Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.
Reacting to his suspension, Mysoora Reddy told reporters that he had already quit TDP and hence the suspension held no meaning.
He alleged that the Congress, TDP and CBI had colluded to implicate Jagan in false cases.
“Unable to fight Jagan politically, they have joined hands to implicate him. I have come out to raise my voice against this injustice,” he said.
“I know Jagan since his childhood. He has people’s support and I am ready to help YSR Congress in whatever way I can,” he added.
