‘Modi is acting like Jagan’s chowkidar’
Chief Minister and TDP national president N. Chandrababu Naidu accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of acting like ‘chowkidar of Mr. (Jagan Mohan) Reddy.’ Addressing an election rally at Tiruvuru on Monday, Mr. Naidu said the latter did not deserve to be re-elected.
He said the Polavaram project would serve as ‘Reserve Bank of Water’ for Andhra Pradesh, and not as an ‘ATM’ as alleged by the Prime Minister.
Seeking to put Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on the defensive, the TDP supremo challenged him to declare his support for the Special Category Status to A.P. by writing a letter to the Centre. Mr. Naidu’s remarks assume importance in the wake of Mr. Jagan’s assertion that he would achieve the SCS with the support of Mr. KCR.
