Amaravati: In a stern message to disgruntled TDP leaders, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu tonight said “discontentment is not good” and warned that action would be taken against those breaching party discipline.
TDP leaders have expressed their discontentment after four YSR-Congress MLAs, who had defected to the party in last few months, were given Cabinet berths in the reshuffle effected today by Naidu and sincere party workers were “overlooked” for the ministerial jobs.
“The Cabinet reorganisation was done taking into account various political equations, social justice, regional balances, caste, experience and age,” Naidu said in a statement.
“Posts were distributed only after consulting all sections of the party, like it has been a normal practice in every selection. Any discontent over this is not good and everything should be taken sportingly,” he said.
“Discontent is natural when posts are few but aspirants are many. Not securing a post may make one unhappy but overcoming this and surging forward will reveal our wisdom, capability and discipline,” the TDP supremo said.
He cautioned leaders not to go to the media with their reactions but discuss everything in the party fora.
“Nobody should leave scope for any breach of discipline, otherwise I will have to act sternly against such people,” he warned.
