Speaker: Kura Venkatesham(Algolu) -Feb25,2012

TDP founder member Kura Venkatesham (Algolu) on Saturday joined YSR Congress Party as he was fed up with N Chandrababu Naidu and his policies.
Algolu, who contested against Indira Gandhi in Medak parliament elections, was harassed by the Congress. “The same methodology is being used now on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy,” he said.
Tracing the history of TDP, he told reporters that he and Tatineni Rama Rao along with NadendlaBhaskara Rao created out the Telugu Desam Party and brought in NTR.
The senior leader from Zaheerabad, said that TDP under N Chandrababu Naidu has become a real estate enterprise and seniors earn no more respect.
Algolu, who was among the think-tank of TDP said, the Rs. 2-a-kg rice scheme was started to counter the popularity of Indira Gandhi while Chandrabau Naidu has scraped the scheme. YSR brought back the Rs 2 kg rice scheme as he was aware of the public pulse. This is one more reason, which attracted me to the party, he said.
People are fed-up with Congress and TDP. Under the present circumstances, they need a change and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is the only alternative, the ideologue said.
