Predicting that TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu will makes an attempt to get back into the NDA fold once again, after the BJP returning to power in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections, BJP chief Amit Shah declared today that the NDA doors are “forever shut” for Naidu’s TDP.
Addressing a election rally in Narasasaraopet of Guntur district, he asserted that the NDA led by Narendra Modi is going to come back to power at the Centre. It may be recalled that Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP quits NDA a year ago on the issue of special status to his state.
Amit Shah alleged that there was no bigger opportunist than Chandrababu Naidu, who would change colours as and when it suited him. He claimed that the NDA government, led by Modi had extended massive financial assistance to Andhra Pradesh in the last five years and implemented majority of the promises made in AP Reorganisation Act.
The BJP chief accused that Naidu indulged in huge corruption in these projects. They can be completed only if the TDP is thrown out of power in the state, he asserted.
Shah also referred to political developments of 1983, when Naidu quit the Congress and joined the TDP founded by NT Rama Rao. “In 1995, he back-stabbed his own father-in-law and usurped the party. In 1999, he joined hands with the NDA government headed by Atal Behari Vajpayee and when the NDA lost power in 2004, the TDP chief deserted it,” said Shah.
