'No Chargesheets against them' : Kishan Reddy defends TDP MPs


MoS Home Affairs Kishan Reddy defended BJP's move of inducting four TDP MPs into their party. The decision to induct TDP MPs was widely criticised considering two MPs YS Chowdary and CM Ramesh were presently under investigation from central agencies under corruption charges. 

Coming to the defence of the MPs, Kishan Reddy pointed out that these were just allegations and that no charge sheet has been filed yet against both the MPs as of yet. YS Chowdary and CM Ramesh along with TG Venkatesh and G Mohan Rao joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday after meeting Vice President Venkaiah Naidu and urging him to merge the TDP Parliamentary Party, Rajya Sabha into BJP. 

"It is totally legal and constitutional under the Constitution of India," said Reddy defending BJP's move to induct the MPs and said that paragraph four of the tenth schedule of the Constitution totally permitted the move. 

Meanwhile, TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu claimed that BJP was playing dirty politics on this matter. "TDP MPs joining BJP is the result of my fight for AP's rights. They had their own personal agendas to address." 

Defending his decision to join BJP YS Chowdary, a former MoS Science and Technology in previous Modi government till TDP withdrew their support to NDA said that the decision by the MPs was personal and that they did so because they were inspired by Prime Minister's vision and developmental politics. Chowdary further added that he will continue to fight for Andhra's rights and that his decision to defect had nothing to do with the cases.
