BJP trying to suppress my voice: Chandrababu Naidu

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday maintained that he never said the state government would bear the cost of land acquisition for the Polavaram Project or the rehabilitation and resettlement of evacuees.

"You're giving industrial incentives to states with special status and not to Andhra Pradesh".

A Kapu face to lead the campaign and an overhaul of the state unit to include leaders from the Kapu and Brahmin communities are on the cards, a senior party leader said. "For us, power is not important but state interests are paramount". Even when we were in National Front or United Front, our priority was the state's interest.

TDP sources said Chandrababu Naidu was apprehensive about the BJP increasing its willingness to communicate with YSR Congress Party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and a possible tie-up with his party closer to the election.

While commenting on the disruption in the Parliament session over the issue of 'Special status' on Monday, Naidu advised his party members to remain alert and act according to the situation. "In the latest budget, we have allocated Rs 1,100 crore for the minority welfare, which was unprecedented in the history of the state", Naidu said.

Thota Narasimham, which could not be taken up in the Lok Sabha on Friday, after Speaker Sumitra Mahajan ruledthat the House should be in order to headcount and take up the motion for discussion.

The Telugu Desam Party today once again lashed out at the Centre, saying it was "running away" from facing a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha and said it was nothing but a "political suicide".
