‘TDP-Congress tie up is a democratic necessity’, defends Chandrababu

Friday, November 2, 2018

In the wake of growing criticize against TDP in joining hands with Congress, Chandrababu Naidu today said that it is a democratic necessity to defeat the BJP’s misrule and not an opportunistic move as being made.

He made it clear that he has no personal ambitions. ‘ I will stay put in Amaravati and toil to make the State Number 1 State in the country’, he said. He added that the TDP has a truck with the Congress in Telangana indicated that there was no need for it in the State. The BJP is misusing the office of Governor, the CBI, the RBI and Enforcement Directorate to further its political interests, he charged. He said that the YSRCP has compromised with the BJP to wriggle out of court cases. He dismissed as a ‘drama’ the knife attack on Jagan Reddy.

Eluru: Meanwhile, JSP president Pawan Kalyan reiterated that Chandrababu’s efforts to stitch up a coalition at the national level were intended to derive personal benefit. ‘Both the Congress and BJP have hurt the interests of the State badly. Chandrababu joining hands with the Congress and other parties is a politically expedient move and not meant to save democracy and protect the interests of the State. Speaking to media during his journey by the Janmabhoomi Express from Vijayawada to Tuni in East Godavari district on Friday, Pawan said the TDP’s friendship with congress was to suit Chandrababu’s convenience and the same drama would obviously play out in the State too.

Vijayawada:: After the meeting with the AICC president Rahul Gandhi, Chandrababu Naidu has asked the party cadres to knock every door in the State to explain the need for joining hands with the Congress. Addressing a teleconference with the party leaders on Friday, he stressed the need for explaining to the people of the party’s recent decisions. The cadres should create awareness among people the need to fight against the BJP. With no other option left and due to unavoidable democratic compulsions, the TDP launched a fight against the BJP. The non-BJP parties were being brought on to a single platform. The decision was taken in the interests of the country and the State, he said.
