'Will contest again from Rajamahendravaram'

TDP MP M. Muralimohan has stated that he will contest again from the Rajamahendravaram Parliamentary constituency, putting to rest the speculation that his daughter-in-law will be fielded in the next elections.

Though I was in two minds, I decided to contest again to lend support to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s fight against the Centre’s discriminatory attitude in fulfilling the legitimate demands of the State, Mr. Muralimohan said while addressing the ‘Meet the Press’ programme here on Thursday.

Calling for unity among the southern States to get their legitimate demands fulfilled by the Centre, Mr. Muralimohan said it was in this context the Chief Minister was laying emphasis on winning all the 25 MP seats by the TDP so that the party could play a crucial role in the formation of the next government at the Centre after the elections.

Questioning why YSRCP’s Rajya Sabha member V. Vijayasai Reddy did not put in his papers for Special Category Status, the TDP leader said, “There is no sincerity in the YSR Congress Party’s fight, and it has lost the confidence of the people.”

Casting couch row

Referring to the controversy in the Telugu film industry over the casting couch issue raked up by actor Sri Reddy, the actor-turned-politician, who had been president of the Movie Artistes’ Association (MAA), said exploitation was prevalent everywhere, including government and private offices.

He did not think it fit on the part of Ms. Sri Reddy to stage a half-naked protest in public.
