CBN Delhi Meet, Targets BJP
AP CM Chandrababu Naidu’s targets BJP in Delhi meet. Chandrababu said that the central government has to pay heavy price if it did not stop targeting his state leaders with tax raids and whipping up sentiments against his government.
NDA government has personal vengeance as I didn’t surrender to them and they are going to pay for it. The Centre was trying to defame his government. CM said, referring to the recent row over ornaments at the Tirumala Venkateswara temple.
"Their effort was to tarnish our image, whip up sentiments in public so that Hindus turn against this government. Is it right”, CBN asked his administrative officers present at the conference. Chandrababu said that two commissions had verified everything but now BJP is saying that the gold and the diamonds are missing. Everything is fabricated, he added.
BJP wanted to take over Tirumala administration, to protect the monument, but who are they? It belongs to the Andhra Pradesh, and it is being managed well”, he continued.
The BJP explained CBN’s remarks as “ludicrous” and said that his words exposed his "rabid paranoia". BJP Rajya Sabha lawmaker, GVL Narasimha Rao said that TDP government is becoming unpopular among the people for its corruption. This behavior of CM proves his psychological condition is not good. The ludicrous comments indicate that Mr. Naidu is exhibiting signs of rabid paranoia and schizophrenia, he added.
Chandrababu ordered his officers to be careful and as “goondas” may violate law and order, without taking the names. Don’t be afraid and be mentally prepared for further attacks, CBN said to his officers. In the country now, CBI is finished, ED is finished. Income Tax Department is gone. If at all, only the Supreme Court should protect us. We have come to that stage," he added.
