Ponguleti objects to Jaipal talking about tie-up with TDP

Finding fault with Congress leader S Jaipal Reddy’s statement that his party was not averse to enter into an electoral alliance with the Telangana TDP, Congress MLC Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy asked the former as who had authorized him to speak on alliance with the TDP.

Speaking to the media here on Thursday after Jaipal Reddy’s press conference, Ponguleti said there was no need of alliances when the party was strong in the State. He said the alliances would depend upon the party’s policy decision. It was not correct on the part of Jaipal Reddy to make such statements. He questioned Jaipal Reddy how an alliance was possible with the TDP, which was in the BJP camp. (NSS)
