Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N/ Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday alleged that state Assembly Speaker Tammineni Seetharam was not enforcing Covid preventive measures in the House.
Cautioning that the negligence is posing a serious risk to all the MLAs and MLCs who were attending the winter session, he noted that when the Parliament was taking exceptional safeguards by erecting partitions between members for protection, Seetharam was not caring for anybody’s health.
Referring to Karumuri Nageswara Rao, a ruling party MLA who recently contracted the virus, Naidu said he recommended all his party leaders to go on self-quarantine.
Instead of acting like a custodian, he said the Speaker was not bothering at all in taking precautionary measures.
“The CM and his party leaders were brutally negligent from the beginning with respect to fighting the virus epidemic. They did not learn any lessons but also behaved atrociously when Tirupati MP Balli Durga Prasada Rao died due to infection,” he alleged
