Naidu calls Modi his Junior, says TDP joined BJP for the state’s sake in 2014 elections
Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday said that he respects Modi but Modi is his junior. Naidu said”When I met then US President Bill Clinton, I addressed him as Mr. Clinton, not as 'sir'. Modi is my junior in politics.
But when he came (to power), I addressed him as sir 10 times. I did this for the sake of the state and to satisfy his ego in the hope that he will do justice to the state.”
CM Naidu previously claimed that Modi ignored his demand for the special status of his state Andhra Pradesh and still he calls him ‘sir’ in a hope that someday Modi will do something for the state.
Naidu mocked Modi and said he supported Modi in the 2014 elections just for the sake of state, he could have won the elections even without Modi’s party but he chose Modi because he respected him. Naidu, whose party pulled out of BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the Centre for its refusal to accord special status last year, said he took the step after reaching to a conclusion that Modi will not do justice.
He blamed Modi for alleging all his oppositions with CBI, ED or other agencies. He added that the case of Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao was withdrawn after he 'compromised' with Modi.
Naidu calling a third time meeting called that this time the government will withdraw all the cases filed against the people demanding special mention of Andhra Pradesh. Leaders of Pratyeka Hoda Sadana Samithi, which is fighting for special category status, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP), other smaller parties and employees' groups attended the meeting.
