Andhra Pradesh Congress general secretary Ambati Rambabu, who has been suspended from the party by the leadership, on Sunday said he has not received any official communication over the matter.
"I came to know from the media and friends that I have been suspended from the party with immediate effect. I have not received any communication from AICC general secretary, in-charge of party affairs in AP M Veerappa Moily or state Congress leadership or any other responsible person," Rambabu, a close aide of Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, told newsmen.
"I can only respond to it after finding out the truth," he said.
Asked if he saw the suspension as an indirect warning to the Jagan camp in the ongoing tussle between party leadership and the young MP, he said, "Do you think so. May be".
Rambabu said he was surprised about the reports of his suspension as the disciplinary committee of APCC gave him time till July 31 to respond to the charges made against him.
He said he has been in Congress for last 20 years and always functioned as a loyal and committed party activist.
Congress last night suspended Rambabu with "immediate effect for his anti-party activities and making anti-party statements".
Rambabu was recently summoned before the party's disciplinary committee to explain his outburst against Chief Minister K Rosaiah.
Quoting the party constitution, he had demanded additional time for replying to the allegations.
