Amaravati: Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu's slip of the tongue during the heated debate in the Assembly on Monday came as a shocker to the ruling TDP.
The chief minister turned angry towards opposition leader Jaganmohan Reddy and alleged that the state acquired top position in corrupt practices.
In his hurried attempt to give it back to Jagan, he said that AP is number one either in corruption or in development.
The CM did not realise his gaffe in the flow of his speech as the opposition members continued their slogan-shouting.
Pandemonium prevailed in the Assembly during the discussion on budgetary allocation as TDP and YSRCP members traded charges.
Jagan continued his offence saying that they would have felt happy had the chief minister told the facts at least in the assembly. He said that all the welfare departments have failed to spend the amounts spared for them.
With the mike going off while Jagan spoke, the opposition staged a protest and surrounded the speaker's podium.
The angry members of TDP too shouted slogans against the opposition prompting the speaker to adjourn the session to Tuesday.
