New Delhi: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has threatened BJP leaders after they blocked his convoy in Kakinada. Naidu said, “If you try to mess, you’ll be finished. The public won’t leave you if you go out and say his (PM Modi) name. Be careful. BJP leaders should feel ashamed for supporting Modi in Andhra.”
The incident took place when the Chief Minister was going to attend various programs in Kakinada on Friday. The BJP leaders blocked Naidu’s convoy allegedly over the comments he made on Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently. The police arrested BJP District President Malakondayya for the incident.
Speaking to media, Naidu had claimed that Prime Minister Modi has been unfair to the state. “Why are the BJP leaders supporting Modi. He has cheated the state. Modi has been unfair to Andhra Pradesh,” Naidu said.
Naidu has been constantly criticising Prime Minister Modi and the BJP, accusing them of betraying the people of Andhra Pradesh by not granting special status to the state.
On Tuesday, Naidu had claimed that he bowed down to satisfy the ego of Prime Minister Modi for getting things done for his state, yet the central government did not cooperate in the last four years.
He had also said that the Centre did not cooperate in these four years and assurances given in the Reorganisation Act are not fulfilled. “Handholding to AP through special status was assured in the Parliament. Even that is not fulfilled,” said Chief Minister Naidu.
The TDP broke away from the NDA in March over the Centre’s refusal to grant special status to Andhra Pradesh. The party had also moved a ‘no-confidence motion’ in the monsoon session of Parliament, which was defeated. TDP MPs had staged a protest inside and outside Parliament.
