‘Defeat BJP', Chandrababu Naidu appeals to Telugu people in Karnataka

By Vikas

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Monday appealed to Karnataka's Telugu speaking population to defeat the BJP in the upcoming assembly polls in the state. He also accused the BJP of indulging in 'collusion politics' and 'conspiracies'.

Naidu has been relentlessly attacking the BJP after his party, TDP, severed ties with the NDA over the issue of special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

"Is it wrong to demand Narendra Modi to fulfill his promises? He promised to build a capital better than Delhi but he gave only Rs. 1500 Crores to Amaravati while Rs. 2500 crores is given to build a statue (Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat)," Naidu said at TDP's public meeting in Tirupati.

The Chandrababu Naidu-led Telugu Desam Party (TDP) held a mega rally in Tirupati today (April 30) against the PM Modi-led government over its failure to grant Special Category Status to the state.

The objective was "to remind Narendra Modi exactly from where he as the prime ministerial candidate had made promises to Andhra Pradesh four years ago".

Four years ago, on April 30, 2014, Narendra Modi during general elections went to offer prayers in Lord Balaji temple, in Tirupati and had promised the people of Andhra Pradesh, to soon grant the state a Special Category Status.

The venue and date of the meeting are the same as the venue and date in 2014 general election campaign when the then prime ministerial candidate Modi had promised the Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh if the BJP voted to power. Tirupati rally would be a reminder for the Narendra Modi-led BJP government which has failed to keep up its promises made to the people of the state.
