Former Union Minister Kishore Chandra Deo Steps Down from TDP

Former Union Minister Kishore Chandra Deo has made a significant decision to step down from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). His resignation comes as a response to the party’s recent efforts towards aligning with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Deo expressed strong objections to this move, stating that he cannot support parties that promote hatred and that he values his principles too much to compromise them.

Deo, who is 75 years old and hails from the Kurupam royal family, served as the Union Tribal Affairs Minister during the Congress-led UPA-II government from 2009 to 2014. He represented the newly formed Araku Lok Sabha constituency during his tenure.

In a letter addressed to TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu, Deo emphasized his stance against aligning with parties that propagate hatred. He stated firmly, “I cannot sell my soul,” highlighting his unwavering commitment to his values.

Deo’s association with the TDP began ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, following a defeat in the 2014 polls. The 2014 defeat came shortly after the bifurcation of the state into Telangana and the residuary Andhra Pradesh.

Deo’s resignation marks a significant development within the TDP, indicating internal disagreements regarding the party’s political direction. His decision underscores the importance of upholding principles and values, even in the face of political alliances and affiliations.
