Former Minister Nara Lokesh had given a strong rebuttal to the Ruling Party’s Criticism about his Mangalagiri Loss. “I did not choose my father’s seat (Pulivendula) and go for an easy seat. I am not someone who will sell fruits in the name of the tree,” Lokesh replied.
“I have chosen the toughest seat to contest. Telugu Desam Party did not win from Mangalagiri since 1984. I chose such a seat and worked to hoist TDP flag there but unfortunately lost. I did not run away from Mangalagiri even after the loss,” Lokesh added.
“YSR Congress Leaders are calling me Pappu. If I am Pappu, you are Ganneru Pappu. My parents raised me very well and I can not speak in Crass language like them,” Lokesh gave back strongly. “I studied in America, so I may have difficulties in Telugu, but those mistakes did not shoo away investors, did not stop Polavaram,” the Former Minister said.
Even though there is a rule in the Assembly that one should not speak about the Person not in the house, YSR Congress is repeatedly targeting Lokesh in the house. After the Press Meet, Lokesh travelled in an RTC Bus from Mangalagiri to Assembly to know the Opinion of the people on RTC Ticket Prices Hike.
