He reminded that it was TDP which developed Andhra Pradesh by introducing the Vision 2020 document. He ridiculed the claims of YSR Congress Party (YCP) on the development of Seemandhra region.
He said that the YCP would build another Chanchalguda Jail in place of new capital. Further, he said that te Backward Classes of Telangana region had high hopes on the TDP.Naidu also predicted that the TRS would merge with the Congress party before elections. He said that the Congress party created rift among the Telugu people to prevent its extinction from Andhra Pradesh. He said that the Congress-TRS merger would further expose the political ambitions of leaders of both the parties.The TDP chief asked KCR to explain his contribution in the development of Hyderabad.
He also condemned caretaker Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s efforts to launch a new party. He asked Kiran to explain what he did for the people’s welfare during his regime which entitles him to launch a new party. Naidu said that the TDP would continue to struggle to restore Telugu pride and the overall development of Telugu people. Naidu said it was his party which fought against ‘corrupt’ Congress party and mining mafia.
Addressing the general body meeting of Seemandhra leaders of the party, the former chief minister said his party has support in Telangana and hoped that the TDP would return to power in both the Telangana and Seemandhra regions. He said ‘anti-Congress wave’ was sweeping across the country due to its inefficiency and non-performance besides that party was also involved in various scams and corrupt practices.“We have developed the State as a result of which the government was able to generate revenue. But the Congress did nothing for the State. Have they (Congress leaders) ever thought about the development of Hyderabad and Telangana,” he asked. He further alleged that former chief minister and late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy were involved in corruption. Naidu further alleged that the Congress has made mockery of democracy by taking a decision to divide the State only to damage the TDP. As part of their conspiracy, the Congress divided Telugu people and changed three chief ministers. But they did nothing for the State, Naidu said.
