Former Minister Nara Lokesh did not respond to the horrendous abuses on his mother, Nara Bhuvaneshwari. TDP insiders say he is broken to the core and could not even come out of it for many days. Lokesh who is touring Mangalagiri responded on the issue for the first time.

“They are behaving like animals. Do you speak similarly about your mothers, wives, and daughters? Have some shame! What did you do when people are suffering due to floods? You were just playing cards and doing black-marketing of ration rice. Are you the people who talk about my mother?” he said.

“Keep yourself in control. Get ready to face severe consequences. You may be thinking Chandrababu Naidu will not take things seriously. I do not have a kind heart like him. You will definitely suffer for this,” Lokesh warned YSR Congress leaders. Vallabhaneni Vamsi who started the issue already admitted his mistake and tendered an open apology.

However, other leaders including Minister Kodali Nani are still in denial mode saying that they did not speak about Bhuvaneshwari even though the clips of abuse are viral on social media.
