Hyderabad, Aug 20: Like-minded parties struggling to remove Congress from power are increasing, so beware! Chiranjeevi is the new one to join the bandwagon. If Venkaiaha Naidu is to be believed, the telephonic talks between Leader of the Oppositon in Lok Sabha L K Advani and filmstar Chiranjeevi, has confirmed that his party was ready to join hands with NDA.
Talking to reporters here, Naidu said,''whichever party comes, we are ready to join hands to end the Congress misrule at the Centre and in the states.'' Under the Congress regime, all sections of the society were suffering due to steep rise in prices of essential commodities, with the inflation touching an all-time high of 12.44 per cent, he charged.
The BJP leader, however, denied any discussion between the former Deputy Prime Minister and the matinee idol over the tie-up for the next Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh.
''It is premature to talk about any alliance between the two parties at this stage. Let him (Chiru) first come out with the policies and programmes of his new party,'' he said.
He added during the talks, Mr Chiranjeevi had sought Mr Advani's blessings in his endeavour to bring about change in state politics and create a 'happy AP' and the latter wished him the best.
Opining that early polls to the Lok Sabha were imminent, he said the BJP would come out with the next list of candidates in September.
Even though the UPA Government had lost the 'people's trust', it had managed to win the trust vote allegedly through 'horse trading', but it was not in a position to face Parliament, he contended, adding, hence it had postponed the Monsoon Session, due in July, following alleged 'differences' between the Congress and its allies the Samajwadi Party and the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha.
