The WhatsApp account of Telugu Desam Party's district president R Srinivasa Reddy and Rajya Sabha MP, CM Ramesh has been banned.

R Srinivasa Reddy told Times of India, “There is something fishy going on, especially because it is only happening to the TDP leaders. First, CM Ramesh's WhatsApp account was banned and now mine. It was actually on the 7th that I realized I was not able to use my WhatsApp account. For the last three days, I have tried many means to uninstall and reinstall the application but to no avail. I got a message that my account has been banned.”

He added, "I suspect that BJP in collision with YSR Congress has been targeting leaders of the Kadapa district one after the other by resorting to such acts of prominent leaders right ahead of the elections."
