Former TRS MLA Somarapu Satyanarayana quits party

Vastavam web: Former TRS MLA from Ramagundam in Telangana, Somarapu Satyanarayana, quit the party Tuesday, alleging that he was not getting due respect. Satyanarayana, who lost the assembly polls held in December last, alleged that party leaders, including a former MP, tried to defeat him. Speaking to reporters here, he said that “as a disciplined soldier,” he had kept quiet all this while, despite the “high handedness”.

He alleged that partymen harassed, including by police, those who worked with him. It is better to leave when there is no respect, he claimed. “The party is moving from being a democratic party to a dictatorial party. Where there is no democracy, many face insults. Under these circumstances, I am resigning from TRS,” ” he said.
