Lok Sabha elections: Chandrababu Naidu should be PM, says Deve Gowda
Bengaluru, Apr 09: Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) supremo HD Deve Gowda campaigned in support of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in Krishna district on Monday. The JD(S) leader addressed two election rallies at Tiruvuru and Pamarru in Krishna district this evening in support of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) for the April 11 general elections in the State.
Deve Gowda hinted that Chandrababu Naidu could possibly be the opposition choice for the prime minister's post to replace Narendra Modi. When the country was at such a critical juncture, Naidu has "accepted the challenge" and "why cannot he become the PM of the country," Deve Gowda asked.
Quick in his reaction, Naidu said, "I am not an aspirant for any post," reported PTI.
Meanwhile, transgender Sneha Kale filed the nomination as independent candidate from Mumbai North-Central seat. She is ready to fight against the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) MP Poonam Mahajan and Congress leader Priya Dutt. While speaking to ANI, Sneha said, "Government hasn't paid much attention on us. I can make policies to improve conditions for people like me. I'm a transgender and I know the problems that people from different sections of society faces."
