Prime Minister Narendra Modi today slammed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu stating that the later is more worried about the political future of his minister-son Nara Lokesh, but not the people of the state. Lamenting the proposed opposition’s alliance against NDA as a crowed of “family-ruled parties”, he said that corruption can lead to sunset of the Naidu’s state.
“To set the son, he (Naidu) is creating an atmosphere for the sunset of the state. He is promoting only his son, he is forgetting the sons and daughters of the state,” he said, accusing the TDP chief of stabbing his father-in-law N.T. Ramarao in the back. The Prime Minister’s response came during his interaction with BJP workers and volunteers from Anantapur, Kadapa, Kurnool, Narasaraopet and Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh through Narendra Modi App.
Coming down heavily on TDP and its chief, he asked BJP cadre what do you expect from those who have cheated NTR not once but twice ? Is it the first time that people in power in Andhra Pradesh are cheating people? Today NTR’s own son-in-law has bowed his head before the Congress to save his chair. It was NTR who led the Congress-Mukt Bharat movement with the anti-Congress National Front, he added.
Prime Minister lamented that today the rulers in AP are so desperate to cling to power that they have betrayed Telugu interests. They stabbed NTR in the back, for a second time. NTR was a true icon of Telugu pride. He never forgave Congress for hurting Telugu pride and its betrayal of Telugu interests,” he said.
Strongly condemning attacks on BJP leaders in Kerala and Andhra Pradesh, he alleged that those failed to win the hearts of the people or being rejected by them, are resorting to violence. He referred that a bomb was found outside the home of Kerala MP V Muralidharan and accused that a conspiracy was hatched to kill him.
When a AP BJP chief Kanna Lakshminarayana told prime minister that Chandrababu Naidu abused an BJP women activist in Kakinada, Modi warned opposition parties to never underestimate the power of BJP workers, saying once the party workers decide something, “no force can stop the party from getting success.”
“For BJP what matter is the passion to serve Bharat Mata. In some parties what matters is a family. In others, what matters is one’s fortune. And for many others, both family and fortune matter,” Modi said.
