Krishna (Andhra Pradesh): Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao are conspiring against the Telugu Desam Party, while adding that YSR Congress Party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy “compromised with Modi” to get rid of all cases filed against him.
“YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) is the fan, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is the switch and BJP is the power,” Naidu said while addressing party workers here on Monday. The TDP Chief further mentioned that if Prime Minister Modi comes back to power, minorities would not be safe in the country, while accusing the current NDA government of “betraying” Andhra Pradesh.
He then went on to say that Jagan was taking “political mileage” from his uncle Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy’s death. “If Jagan comes to power, can anybody live safely in the state? They are blaming us for Vivekananda Reddy’s murder and asking for an inquiry by the Central Bureau Investigation as they believe that Modi at the Centre will save them. All good people are joining TDP while the thieves are joining YSRCP,” he added.
At the meeting, Naidu equated his party cadre to Alexander’s army and said, “The powerful leader Alexander had an army of 10 lakh soldiers to conquer the world. The TDP has an army of 65 lakh dedicated soldiers who can make every impossible thing possible. TDP will win the upcoming Assembly elections. We have to win 150 plus seats in Assembly and all 25 Parliamentary constituencies.”
At another party meeting that was held in Ongole, Naidu claimed that Janata Dal (United) National Vice President Prashant Kishor had removed names of over seven lakh voters in Andhra Pradesh. The Chief Minister claimed that the YSRCP is doing injustice to the state with its collusive politics and has stolen the data of TDP workers. “It is good for Andhra if Jagan remains in Lotus Pond (his Hyderabad residence),” he added.
Naidu also said that the Federal Front proposed by KCR will only comprise of TRS and YSRCP. “In fact, it (Federal Front) is formed at the behest of Prime Minister Modi. KCR is cheating people by saying he will be kingmaker in Delhi with 17 MP seats,” he added. The 17th Lok Sabha polls and the Assembly polls in Andhra Pradesh will take place on April 11 in a single phase. The results of the Assembly and Lok Sabha polls will be announced on May 23.
