"With the elections fast approaching and his support decreasing, I think that Naidu is making statements out of insecurity," she said.

Nizamabad MP and senior Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader K Kavitha on Wednesday hit out at Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President Chandrababu Naidu, for the latter's comments on the meeting between YSRCP chief Jaganmohan Reddy and TRS Working President K T Rama Rao.

Kavitha was taking questions from citizens and Twitter users alike as part of an #AskMPKavitha event. The Nizamabad MP, who is also Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's daughter, answered several questions on various issues.

Responding to a question asked by a Twitter user on Naidu's comments, Kavitha said, "It seems that Naidu will find whatever KCR does, problematic. What I wish to say to him is that we are not concerned about who you are meeting as a political party. In the same way, who KCR is meeting, is not an issue that should concern you."

"Ultimately, it comes down to who the people will vote for and they will come to power," she added.

Speaking about the Federal Front which KCR has been trying to stitch together, Kavitha said, "KTR had met Jagan on the matter. We will definitely talk to the YSRCP further as well. KCR has decided that YSRCP will be one of the regional parties with which we will work at the national level. If Naidu has a problem with that, there is nothing we can do."

"With the elections fast approaching and his support decreasing, I think that Naidu is making these statements out of insecurity," she added. 

Responding to the meet which took place earlier this month, Naidu had said that "jealous people were coming together for a conspiracy against Andhra Pradesh". He alleged that KCR was against Andhra Pradesh's development and afraid of his own inefficiency while Jaganmohan Reddy was scared that he might have to go to jail in corruption cases.

"With this meeting the nexus between them is exposed," said Naidu, who has been trying to play anchor to an anti-BJP front at the national level.

After the meeting with Jagan, KTR had said that KCR planned to visit Andhra soon for further talks with Jagan.
