The Chief Minister of Puducherry V Narayanasamy has asked the people of Andhra Pradesh living in Karnataka to teach the BJP a lesson by voting against it. He said that the BJP ought to be taught a lesson as the party had cheated the people of AP on the Special Category Status and going back on other promises relating to the bifurcation of the state.
Narayanasamy exuded confidence that the Congress would come to power in Karnataka with a clear majority. Congress president Rahul Gandhi would accord SCS to Andhra Pradesh the moment he becomes the Prime Minister, he added.
He also added that the NDA Government was not in a position to give a detailed account of the black money claimed to have been unearthed by it after demonetisation. He also accused the BJP of using agencies such as the CBI, ED and IT department to attain political goals.
