'People need more development and not bandhs', says TDP Chief Naidu
May 29, 2014 - Hyderabad
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister designate Nara Chandrababu Naidu took a dig at the TRS chief and Telangana Chief Minister designate K Chandrasekhar Rao on his call for a bandh against Polavaram on Thursday.
Chandrababu Naidu tweeted: It is so sad to see KCR and his antics in Telangana. People don't need more bandhs. They need development and an action plan for good governance.
The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimmen slammed the BJP led NDA government for taking the ordinance route to merge seven mandals of Khammam district with Andhra Pradesh for construction of the Polavaram project. MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi said that there was no need for the Centre to issue an ordinance when the Parliament is due to meet shortly. He further said that 'it is not good for parliamentary democracy. What message is the government trying to send', he questioned.
TDP leader Somireddy questions
In a separate press conference, TDP senior leader Somireddy Chandra Mohan Reddy sought to know why a controversy was being created over the inclusion of villages from Khammam district in the successor State of Andhra Pradesh.
