Telugu Desam Party MLC, Buddha Venkanna made some offending comments on YSRCP leader, MLA, Roja. The senior TDP leader said that Roja has the habit of consuming alcohol before attending press meets. He added that the officials should hold breathe analyzer test before Roja speaks at public events.

Venkanna further termed YCP lady leader as a shameless person and can go to any extent for publicity. He stated that Roja is trying to show her cinematic talent at press meets and will soon be taught a lesson. Well, these offending comments from the senior TDP leader will surely be causing a stir in the state politics.

Surprisingly, the official spokesperson of the party started supporting these derogatory comments and said that he will not be condemning them. These kinds of personal attacks on a lady politician can result in adverse effects as the public generally has a soft corner for women. Venkanna should have been a tad cautious while making these strong comments that can easily attract a huge backlash from the public.

Reacting to this issue, YCP leaders said that Venkanna has crossed all limits and started a personal attack on the opposition leader. They said that a politician should avoid such cheap talk against their opposition.
