A hot debate has started in the political circles of the two Telugu states after Telangana Minister Talasani Srinivasa Yadav was spotted outside the Hyderabad residence of TDP chief and AP CM Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday.

Going into details, Naidu held a crucial meeting with the TDP Telangana unit leaders at his residence in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad on Sunday. As media was waiting outside to speak with the leaders after the end of the meet, they were surprised to see Telangana minister Srinivas Yadav coming towards Naidu’s residence along with his convoy.

When the media asked the minister if he came to attend Naidu’s all-important TDP meet, he reasoned that he had come towards the TDP Chief’s house as there was heavy traffic on the road that he was supposed to go. He added that he had no idea that Naidu was holding a meet with TDP leaders and that his presence in the surroundings was a mere coincidence.

As per the protocol, any leader or official has to take prior permission to meet the Chief Minister.

Yadav was elected TDP MLA from Sanathnagar Assembly Constituency in Hyderabad in 2014 general elections. He later shifted loyalties to TRS and was made a minister in Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s cabinet.

Despite the minister’s clarification, the issue has become a hot topic of discussion in political circles of AP & Telangana.
