KCR Calls Naidu The Dirtiest Politician In India
The Telangana CM launched a vituperative personal attack on is Andhra Pradesh counterpart.
Hyderabad | 29th December 2018
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today said that Telugu Desam Party chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu would face a serious debacle in the 2019 elections, and that other parties like the YSR Congress Party and the CPI would come to power in AP.
Talking to media persons at Pragathi Bhavan, KCR launched a vituperative personal attack on his arch rival, saying, "Naidu is the dirtiest politician in the country, and one who lies all the time. He backstabbed his own father-in-law to become the Chief Minister. He fielded Nandamuri Suhasini in the elections to cash in on her father Harikrishna's death. Will he now still give any key position to her given that she has lost the election? Then, he first said that there was no need for special status for AP, and then later started demanding the same after splitting from the BJP. He is copying our schemes like Kalyana Lakshmi and i-Pass, and I even complained to the Centre about that. He is not a leader but just a manager. He cannot even speak two sentences of English properly, and can barely converse in Hindi, and he harbours aspirations of operating at the national level."
KCR claimed that Naidu had got a total of Rs 1,500 crores in central funds including Rs 500 crores for the High Court for Andhra Pradesh, but had ignored development. How then would the TDP chief be capable of understanding the economic benefits that would accrue at the national level through a Federal Front, he sought to know.
Rebutting the statement of Naidu that he was opposing the special status demand to AP, KCR said that he was ready to even write a letter urging the PM to grant special status to AP.
The Telangana CM also launched a scathing attack against Naidu for trying to create a controversy over the shifting of the AP High Court from Hyderabad to Amaravathi after he had himself filed an affidavit on behalf of his government in the Supreme Court informing it that he would take steps for the shifting of the High Court before the end of December.
"Our government told the SC that the High Courts of both the states could function from Hyderabad till a permanent building was made ready for the AP High Court. However, Naidu and his government told the apex court that they would shift the HC by the end of December. Based on this, the SC issued orders to the union government, and the Centre accordingly issued the gazette notification. Now the same Naidu is trying to create a controversy on the issue," he said.
He urged the media to expose the lies of Naidu before the people of Andhra Pradesh, who he said inspired awe in him for their patience in bearing with such a "dirty" politician.
