Janata Dal (United) leader Prashant Kishor on Tuesday criticised Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu for calling him a “Bihari dacoit”, terming it as a display of “prejudice and malice against the eastern state” ahead of imminent defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.
The poll strategist-turned-politician was reacting to a news report that reportedly had Naidu accusing him of deleting lakhs of names from the Andhra Pradesh voter list as well as giving “criminal advice” to the YSR Congress. “An imminent defeat can rattle even the most seasoned politician.
So I am not surprised with the baseless utterances on Mr Naidu’s Twitter handle. Sirji, rather than using derogatory language that shows your prejudice and malice against Bihar, just focus on why the people of Andhra Pradesh should vote for you again,” Kishor tweeted, sharing a link to the news item.
