“Chandrababu Naidu says he is fighting against BJP on one side, but he appoints a BJP Minister’s wife as TTD Board member. He says TDP is against the Congress, but he is trying for alliance with the Congress. What he says and what he does are two different things and it is all to cheat the people,” said YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy during his Praja Sankalpa Yatra in Krishna district.
Jagan targeted Chandrababu Naidu for giving TTD membership to a BJP Minister’s wife when he is seriously fighting against BJP for betrayal. “If he is serious in his fight against BJP, why did he give the TTD post to a BJP woman,” Jagan asked and told the people that Chandrababu Naidu’s Dharma Poratam is just a game of opportunism.
“Chandrababu Naidu never speaks the truth. What he says is different from what he does and what he means. Don’t be carried away by what he says,” Jagan Mohan Reddy cautioned the people ahead of the TDP’s public meeting in Tirupati scheduled for Monday evening.
Meanwhile, the YSR Congress party had called upon the people to observe “Betrayal Day” today against CM’s meeting in Tirupati and TDP’s betrayal of being silence in the last four years on the special category status and other issues. The YSR Congress leaders would be holding a day long protest in Visakhapatnam on the day and have planned for a public meeting in the evening – almost at the same time when Chandrababu Naidu is set to address in Tirupati.
The YSR Congress is planning to present to the people contradicting statements of Chandrababu Naidu in the last four years on special category status and also the suppressive steps the government had taken against those who fought for the special category status. Chandrababu Naidu government had clamped police cases against the students and activists who agitated for the special category status in the last four years.
“Though Chandrababu Naidu had changed his decision and claims to be fighting for the special category status, why did he not withdraw the cases even today” is what the YSR Congress leaders ask now and say that Chandrababu Naidu’s fight is not sincere and has the chances of taking a U turn again if the BJP gives him what he is asking for.
“Chandrababu Naidu’s fight is not for the special category status. It is for the increase of the Assembly seats to 225 so that he can accommodate the MLAs whom he had purchased form the YSR Congress,” said YSR Congress MLA R K Roja.
These are the allegations that the YSR Congress leaders are making during their press conferences and public meetings to counter the TDP. It is to be seen how the TDP would counter the campaign.
