HYDERABAD: Discontentment surfaced in the TDP a day after Chandrababu Naidu's cabinet was sworn-in with at least four MLAs making it clear they are unhappy for being excluded from the ministry.

Senior leader and party vice-president Bandaru Satyanaryana Murthy submitted his resignation from his party post and questioned the rationale behind being denied a cabinet berth.

"I am the senior most leader from the district. How I am ineligible for a minister post? The party leadership should explain this," said Satyanarayana.

He represents Pendurthi Assembly constituency in Visakhapatnam district. Satyanarayana was particularly upset that though his district has been given two berths, he did not figure on the list.
Kagita Venkat Rao, a TDP MLA from Krishna district, refused to attend the swearing-in ceremony when he came to know that his name was not on the list. He reportedly went into a deep depression and admitted to a hospital in
Machilipatnam when he complained of chest pain.

He was later shifted to Vijayawada. Two TDP leaders from Guntur district, Kodela Siva Prasada Rao and D Narendra, were also upset over denial of a ministerial berth. Kodela is senior to Naidu in the TDP and has been a minister on five occasions. D Narendra too is upset at being denied a ministerial berth.

Followers of B K Pathasarathy, a TDP MLA from Anantapur, quit their party posts to protest their leader being denied a cabinet berth. In Guntur, followers of senior leader Modugula Venugopal Reddy ransacked the party office and damaged furniture and raised slogans demanding a ministerial berth for Modugula.
