Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a first of its kind verbal attack on AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu by claiming that people will ‘reject’ TDP this time. Modi was addressing BJP workers in AP through a video conference when he mentioned that state was looking for a new leadership and BJP must work hard to help the people achieve it.
In his first direct attack on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu post TDP's separation from NDA, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said those in power in the state were indulging in scams. Without naming the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president, Modi said they were busy outside the state for forging an alliance as they knew that the ground in Andhra Pradesh had shifted and they were going to be defeated in coming elections.
Stating that people have not forgotten the manner in which Congress divided Andhra Pradesh, Modi said by joining hands with Congress, those in power in the state have rubbed salt into the wounds of the people.
What happened to this grand alliance in Telangana? They were totally rejected by the people and same is going to happen in Andhra Pradesh," added Modi.
Criticising Naidu for aligning with Congress, the very party TDP was formed to fight against, Modi said, “Those in power in Andhra Pradesh have not remained committed to their ideology. Can we expect them to be committed to people?”
Rubbishing Naidu’s claims of centre not being empathetic of AP’s needs Modi stated that centre was fully committed to the welfare of AP asked the workers to fight all such false claims with facts. Modi also alleged the TDP government of corruption and asked where was the utilisation certificate for Rs 1,000 crores that Centre granted AP government for development of backward districts.
"Polavaram irrigation project was declared as national project. We have so far released around Rs 7,000 crore. The state government was keen to be the executor of the work. We also accepted that. If CAG reports are to be believed they also turned out to be inefficient in executing the work. Why are they unable to execute the project properly," questioned Modi as closing remarks.
