N. Chandrababu Naidu, the chief of the Telugu Desam Party, met President of India Ram Nath Kovind yesterday (25th October) in the capital and has demanded the enactment of the President’s Rule in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
This demand has been made post the alleged violence in the TDP offices by the workers of the YSRCP party. TDP is claiming that several YSRCP workers attacked their offices in the state.
Responding to the enquiries regarding the visit, Naidu has been quoted has saying that “We met President to tell him about the operation of state-censored terrorism and mafia gangs in Andhra Pradesh.” Reportedly, he has also sought an CBI investigation in the matter.
Naidu is also planning on meeting Home Minister Amit Shah when the latter returns from his Jammu and Kashmir visit. The TDP leader has made claims about the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Jaggan Mohan Reddy being bankrupt as his government has borrowed left and right and is now in huge debts. According to Naidu, this financial crisis has also been the reason for downsizing the public welfare schemes in the state.
Notably, Naidu has hinted towards possibility of him re-joining the NDA government by stating that the option can be explored, otherwise his party might get exploited by others.
