Chandrababu Naidu, the leader of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), launched a scathing attack on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy, accusing him of being a political businessman exploiting power for personal gains. The remarks were made during a public meeting in Gudivada, Krishna district, where Naidu highlighted the cancellation of 100 welfare programs under Reddy’s rule.
In his address, Naidu portrayed Gudivada as a place with a rich history, known for producing great individuals and serving as the constituency where the iconic N.T. Rama Rao (NTR), the founder of TDP and a renowned actor, was elected as MLA for the first time. Naidu underscored the TDP’s commitment to self-respect and welfare, expressing confidence in the resurgence of the party and the unstoppable victory of the TDP-Janasena Party alliance.
Drawing a sharp comparison, Naidu likened the YSRCP regime to British colonial rule, alleging widespread looting of the state’s wealth through various scams and business ventures. He accused the YSRCP government of reneging on promises, specifically in areas like job creation and alcohol prohibition. Naidu concluded by asserting that those engaged in politics without a proper method provide no benefit to the people.
The public meeting served as a platform for Naidu to critique the governance of the YSRCP, emphasizing key policy failures and presenting an alternative vision through the TDP-Janasena alliance.
