A former government chief whip, Babu Rao said that the party leadership had insulted him at every step and ignored his existence altogether.

Andhra Pradesh opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) suffered another jolt as its senior leader from Vizianagaram Gadde Babu Rao has parted ways with the party, alleging insults from the party leadership.

He announced his resignation at a press conference at Amaravati on Sunday, September 27. He said that he had the quit the party after being pained by the neglect meted out to him by the party leadership, according to a report in Telugu.in.  

Babu Rao got emotional while addressing the media and stated that he joined TDP during NTR's reign. He said that he was not expecting any positions in the party but wanted his services to be acknowledged.

A former government chief whip, he said the party leadership had insulted him at every step and ignored his existence altogether. He said his only remorse is that some night NTR might come into his dream and ask him as to why he had left the party. “Except that I have no remorse. I am convinced that I am taking the right decision. There is no going back on this decision,” he was quoted by Sakshi as saying.

He is the second senior leader to leave the TDP recently. Earlier, Visakhapatnam South constituency TDP MLA Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar shifted his loyalties to YSRCP. Baburao has not given any indications about his future course of action. Reports said that he is considering joining either the ruling YSRCP or the BJP.
