Rompicherla: The Telugu Desam party leaders offered YSR Congress Party MLA Dr Sunil Kumar Rs.40 crores to cross over to the ruling party, he alleged. The legislator from Poothalapattu revealed that he was also threatened with false cases if he failed to succumb to the lure of the offer.
Dr. Sunil Kumar was addressing a public meeting at Challavaripalle under Rompicherla mandal in Chittoor district, when he made this startling disclosure. He remarked that the TDP did not have the same degree of interest on people’s welfare as it did on trying to lure MLAs from other parties. The YSRCP legislator further said that he was not afraid of false cases and emphasised that he would remain loyal to his mentor and senior party leader, Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy.
