Botsa counters Atchannaidu's challenge of seeking fresh mandate
Minister Botsa Satyanarayana has criticised Andhra Pradesh TDP president Atchannaidu's demand to dissolve the Legislative Assembly and seek people’s fresh mandate. In response to his demand, Botsa asked him to quit MLA post first then he will also resign for his Assembly seat. The minister advised opposition TDP to make critical analysis of party defeat in the ZPTC and MPTC elections and accept loss graciously. He came down heavily on a section of daily newspapers and TV news channels for disseminating misleading information. “People are aware as to which dailies and TV channels are favouring the TDP,” he added.
