Minister for Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development, and Fisheries Seediri Appala Raju has said that the TDP will cease to exist after the 2024 General Elections. Addressing the media here on Thursday, the Minister said that having lost hopes on his son Lokesh, the TDP chief is trying to gain public sympathy by spreading falsehood.
Coming down heavily on the TDP pesident, the Minister said that Naidu conducted the Kurnool roadshow to block the attempts of the government to make Visakhapatnam the Executive capital. Referring to the appeal of Naidu to vote his party to power in the 2024 elections, he said it would be the last elections for him.
The forthcoming Assembly elections would seal the TDP’s fate once and for all. The Minister mocked at the TDP chief’s assertion that he would transform ‘Kaurava Sabha’ into ‘Gourava Sabha’ if voted to power and said that Naidu has become a laughing stock by making such statements. The TDP President is in frustration and trying to block the formation of three capitals to protect his self-interests, he said.
While Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy always cooperated with the CBI and never tried to draw sympathy despite the family facing investigation and harassment from the ED and other agencies when he was in the Opposition, Chandrababu Naidu was trying to draw sympathy out of frustration and spreading falsehood aiming at political gains.
The Minister said that the TDP chief was against turning Kurnool into the Judicial capital and simply opposing decentralisation to protect the interests of his men and supporters. Chandrababu is making irrelevant statements and throwing mud on the Government while resorting to sympathy dramas to make political gains, he said.
While the Chief Minister has been aiming at decentralization for the balanced growth of all regions, the former Chief Minister is making irrelevant statements as he had no achievements to boast of, he added.
Castigating the TDP chief for claiming that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had praised him for introducing the DWCRA Scheme, the Minister made it clear that while the scheme was introduced by the former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao, the former Chief Minister YSR revived and improved it.
The people of North Andhra and Rayalaseema are not in a position to believe Naidu, he said, adding that this is the case with the people of Vijayawada and Guntur for not allowing development in the Legislative Capital region for the sake of his men in 29 villages.
