Kakinada, Sep 6: Former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday described the 100-days rule of YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) government as 'Barbaric’ and unprecedented in the state's history.
Addressing the party workers meeting at Parinay hall at Achampet junction here during the beginning of his two day visit to East Godavari district, Naidu alleged that the ruling YSRCP government was vindictive and indulging in destruction and glaring attacks on the TDP workers everywhere.
He said that even in East Godavari district known for its peaceful atmosphere, the TDP workers were harassed and made targets of attacks at Pithapuram, Tuni and Prattipadu constituencies.
"We want to give six months time for the YSRCP government for its proper functioning and play the role of constructive opposition later. But situation proved otherwise and the unilateral actions and destructive policies of the government have prompted to react. Anna canteens were closed depriving the poor the needed food," Mr Naidu said.
TDP chief also alleged that when agitated, cases were being booked against the TDP workers depriving their democratic rights.
"The more the oppression, the more will be the resistance leading to the downfall of the government. It will make the TDP workers as a strong force in the days to come," he said with emotion filled voice.
Referring to the capital city Amaravati and also the multipurpose Polavaram project, he lamented that these works had come to a grinding halt due to immature and vindictive actions of Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy.
"The farmers future who gave voluntarily 33,00 acres of land for capital city Amaravati is now in peril. The development of the state itself is on a reverse gear and CM’s unilateral policies are alone responsible for the sad state of affairs," he remarked. The barbaric and rowdiest rule in the state, he said, would not be allowed to continue and asked the TDP cadre not to get disheartened but resist the present undemocratic rule with more vigor.
Mr Naidu said the TDP fight against the evil policies of the government now started from East Godavari district and would gain momentum with his relentless tour to all districts hereafter.
Interestingly the former MLA Thota Trimurtulu did not attend the crucial meeting and preferred to stay at his residence Chinaboddu venkatayapalem village despite Naidu personally inviting him over phone. Former MLA Jyothula Nehru, his son Naveen and former ministers Chinarajappa, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Achennaidu and Jawahar were among those attended. (UNI)
