The Name Game over Kadapa

The Telugu Desam Party has moved a resolution to remove late YS Rajasekhar Reddy’s name from Kadapa district. The decision was made at Kadapa mini-Mahanadu and is likely to be proposed in the Mahanadu which is scheduled later this week.

“Names of districts were not changed when leaders who served as chief minister died. Kadapa is like the entrance to Lord Venkateshwara and therefore we moved a resolution to remove YSR’s name from Kadapa district,” said a leader who refused to be named.

However, YSR Congress party might pose a serious opposition to this move and it could turn into an ugly war between the ruling and opposition parties.
