Minister announced the demonetisation — TDP had started claiming credit, saying it was a “victory for Chandrababu” over his fight on corruption.
“This is a moral victory for the TDP,” it said on posts on Facebook and Twitter.
“Prime Minister Modi may have taken the decision now but Chandrababu had these thoughts even when he was in the opposition (2004-14).
“He had been fighting for scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes since then,” the TDP pointed in a Facebook post.
The party media cell dug out newspaper clippings dated back to June 2013 when Chandrababu raised the demand for the first time.
But as people started facing trouble in exchanging the scrapped notes as well as in withdrawing cash from their savings accounts, Naidu changed tone and started making critical remarks about the Centre’s move, particularly the introduction of Rs 2000 notes.
His “twice daily” review meetings with bankers, district collectors and state government officials in the last 20 days were being seen as his desperate attempt to deflect people’s ire from him as the “architect of demonetisation”. PTI DBV KIS
