Ram Madhav, BJP National General Secretary attack TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu for joining hands with opposition leaders ahead of the general elections in 2019. While speaking to ANI Madhav accuse Naidu that he did this to save his government in Andhra Pradesh.
“Chandrababu Naidu first back-stabbed and betrayed NT Rama Rao. Now, he wants to betray the principles of TDP and is sitting in the pocket of Congress to save his government,” Madhav said.
TDP chief met with several opposition parties including Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. After meeting with Rahul, Naidu said that their alliance was a democratic compulsion. However, Madhav said that the Congress has a history of taking alliance down and that “they will end up like that”.
Madhav recalls the Congress’ and Samajwadi Party's alliance in Uttar Pradesh where both Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav were projected as sons of the soil but ended up losing the polls to BJP. Naidu was in alliance with BJP but he left the alliance over special status to the Andhra Pradesh. Now, he decided to contest the next assembly elections in an alliance with Congress.
Madhav said that the grand alliance is like marriage today but divorcing tomorrow. He further said, “those who are advocating Mahagathbandhan to defeat Modi, some of them could join Modi after the election”.
BJP criticized Naidu for his meeting with the Congress president. Naidu destroyed the legacy of N T Rama Rao after joining hands with the Congress. “…Rahul Gandhi is so weak that he is looking for support from anyone,” said BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain.
