Vijayawada, Apr 9: On the last day of election campaign for the general election on April 11, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party National President N Chandrababu Naidu came down heavily on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and YSRCP President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy by alleging that they were acting like pet dogs to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Addressing an election meeting in Gurazala town in Guntur district on Tuesday, Mr Naidu said that Mr Modi dictates Mr Rao and Mr Reddy and they follow his directions. He said that Telangana Chief Minister announced that he would merge the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) into the Congress, if separate Telangana state was carved out.
However, after creating of Telangana state, Mr Rao did not merge his party into the Congress but abused UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, he flayed.
The Telangana government approached the Supreme Court on the construction of Polavaram irrigation project, he pointed out and asked voters to reject YSRCP which is being supported by Mr Chandrashekar Rao. “Jagan Reddy is wooing voters to give one opportunity to rule the state. If he is given one opportunity, the construction of Polavaram will come to halt. The control over the Nagarjuna Sagar and Srisailam projects will land into the hands of Telangana state. Water will be provided to Rayalaseema region through PR Padu and Mucchumarri head regulators” he predicted. The Chief Minister participated in a road show and addressed gathering in Sattenapalli on the last day.
