In a comment that could trigger a political row, Ramakrishnudu on Saturday compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a ‘Anaconda’ who has been gulping the national establishments. “Modi has been swallowing institutions like CBI, RBI and others. How could he be a saviour,” said Ramakrishnudu.
He additionally lashed out at the opposition YSR Congress and Jana Sena, saying they desired just for power and don’t have any obligation towards the country.
“Those two parties are, hence, supporting Modi who has been destroying national institutions and democracy,” he added.
Responding to Anaconda comment against Modi, state BJP president Kanna Lakshminarayana said TDP boss N Chandrababu Naidu was the “king of corruption” and fears that his supposed defilement would be uncovered at this point.
“N Chandrababu Naidu is the king of corruption and will stoop to any level. The man who passed a resolution in the NDA meeting in 2017, that Modi should become prime minister again is now trying to portray the latter as a culprit,” said Lakshminarayana.
“All corrupt leaders have formed a group and Chandrababu hastily ran into it. But it will not be possible if they try to loot the country in the garb of politics,” he said. Chandrababu was scared that his corrupt history would be exposed and hence befriended the Congress, he added.
As of late, Chandrababu Naidu met with Opposition leaders in Delhi to gather support for an all India coalition against the BJP. Naidu said he will assume the job of a ‘facilitator’ in developing a sound option and said that he isn’t occupied with turning into the Prime Minister.
Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP left the NDA union this year over interest for special status for Andhra Pradesh.
