Mr. Modi lashed out at Mr. Naidu for aligning with the Congress, saying the former CM NT Ramarao (NTR) had launched the party to make Andhra Pradesh "congress-mukth" after he was a victim of its 'arrogance.' Mr. Naidu was indeed a senior to him, but only in losing elections, switching alliances and ditching his father-in-law NT Rama Rao, Mr. Modi said at a public rally here. "He is going ahead with the bill against the will of indigenous people but we will not tolerate this", said AASU Adviser Samujjal Bhattacharrya. "And that is why NTR decided to make AP Congress-mukt and floated the TDP", Modi said.
"The arrogance of Delhi (during the Congress rule) has always insulted the states". "The crowd has been painted in the shape of Andhra Pradesh, indicating the state's anger at the Centre's indifference towards fulfilling bifurcation promises", NewsMinute reported, maintaining that "One such hoarding has been erected even at the Gannavaram Airport where the PM will be arriving".
He said the Prime Minister did not have a family or a son.
It may be noted that Naidu had staged an indefinite fast at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan in October 2013, demanding that if a separate state is carved out of then unified Andhra Pradesh, both should get equal justice. "From the seas to the skies, the Congress has several scams associated with the defence and in the process the party did not allow the modernisation of defence forces for long years that they were in power", Mr Modi said.
