Former chief minister and Telugu Desam Party supremo Chandrababu Naidu had decided to go on day long protest in Vijayawada on November 14 against the sand scarcity. The decision was taken at the party meeting held in Vijayawada on Tuesday. Naidu said that the government had failed to solve the sand issue even after five months and was turning a blind eye to the problem.
The TDP chief said that the construction workers in the state were committing suicides and the starvation deaths of the workers were ignored by the government. He wanted the government to pay Rs 10,000 every month to the families of the construction workers besides Rs 25 lakh compensation to those who committed suicide.
The TDP had joined the Jana Sena’s long march in Visakhapatnam on November 3 where Pawan Kalyan criticised the government and gave two-week time to address the issue. The TDP had backed the Jana Sena’s protest in Visakhapatnam and it is expected that the Jana Sena would join Naidu’s protest in Vijayawada.
The TDP and the Jana Sena together are holding protests making their hidden understanding open to the people. Naidu is in a hurry to prove that this government is failure in five months and the TDP had already started the campaign in the social media against chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy. Interestingly, Pawan Kalyan too is in a hurry to prove Jaganmohan Reddy as failure to please Chandrababu Naidu.
As alleged by the ruling YSR Congress leaders, the TDP and the Jana Sena are two sides of the same political ideology and Pawan Kalyan is always seen pursuing the political line of Chandrababu Naidu. As the understanding between the TDP and the Jana Sena was exposed in Visakhapatnam’s long march, it is now to be seen how to the two parties organise the protests while continuing their political understanding.
