Reacting to reports in a section of the media, TDLP leader Errabelli Dayakar Rao has clarified that he never said a BJP candidate alone should contest in the by-election to Warangal Lok Sabha constituency.
In a statement here on Sunday, Errabelli stated that a meeting was held between TDP and BJP leaders to discuss electoral strategy on the ensuing Warangal by-election. They discussed only about their efforts to ensure victory of an NDA candidate. In fact, probable candidate and party did not figure in the meeting. They only talked about election campaigning to ensure victory of an NDA candidate so that he or she could get a berth in the Union Cabinet and strive for development of Warangal district, he added.
