Central Minister Kishore Chandradev has condemned the media reports about his letter written to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi against Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC president Botsa Satyanarayana asking her to replace them both. He said “I didn’t write any letter to anyone. After all, why should I need to write a letter when I can have a direct talk with party high command?” Replying to another question on the same issue, he suggested media people to contact the news paper in which his letter-rumor was published to know further details. However, he admits that he wrote a letter to state Government ordering it to terminate the bauxite mining leasing in tribal areas in the Visakhapatnam district, but there was no response from the state Government to his letter.
However, it is to be noted that AICC member Sandip Deekshit has told the media that “If he writes a letter to party high command, strictly it would be his personal affair.”
