Andhra Pradesh chief minister and Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu has become a puppet in the hands of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre and mortgaged the interests of the state in Delhi only to save his skin.
This was the observation made by YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, while staging a dharna in front of the assembly in Hyderabad on Saturday.
He said Naidu had been caught red-handed with audio visual evidence in the cash-for-vote case and hence, to wriggle out of this case, he had compromised on special category status to AP, he alleged.
“Immediately after the ACB court directive TDP minister Sujana Choudhary meets BJP national president, union ministers an flies to State capital to meet the Governor and tells media that he has come to discuss special status. In what way the Governor is concerned with the special status,” Jagan wondered.
It is unfortunate that Naidu was still sticking to the stand that he would give a statement in the House on special package.
“It is nothing short of bankruptcy and shows that there is a secret pact between the Centre and Chandrababu Naidu after the ACB court has directed for a reinvestigation into the cash for vote case,” he said.
