Naidu was reacting to Amit Shah’s assertion made on Monday, the place the BJP president termed the TDP supremo a “U-turn Chief Minister” and that he is not going to be allowed to affix the NDA alliance once more.
Naidu advised ANI in an interview, “We all know how Amit Shah was five years back. As he has got a big position, he is thinking he has become so powerful. Who asked him to open that door (to join NDA)? Did I ask him or beg him? He is talking all rubbish?”
“After the general elections, the people of India will close the doors for the BJP,” the TDP chief said.
On Monday, Shah, addressing a rally in Andhra Pradesh, Naidu had mentioned, “I am sure once the counting for 2019 elections is over and the NDA government comes to power again, Chandrababu Naidu will make all the efforts to join the NDA back. Let me tell you that this time, the NDA’s doors for him have been shut forever. He has misguided the people of the state. It is appropriate to call Chandrababu Naidu a U-turn chief minister.”
Slamming the Centre for failing to maintain the guarantees made to Andhra Pradesh, Naidu mentioned, “The BJP is responsible for Andhra Pradesh’s problems. There is a bifurcation act, the Centre promised special status to the state. However, the government later denied that. Now, they are trying to threaten us. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should answer what he has done for Andhra Pradesh.”
“BJP should not insult and humiliate people of Andhra Pradesh,” the Chief Minister added.
The TDP, which is ruling Andhra Pradesh, pulled out from the NDA final 12 months over the demand for particular class standing which was promised through the bifurcation of the state in 2014.
