#APCMChandrababuNaidu: “Frauds in the last four years have outnumbered the achievements of BJP Government”

“Frauds in the last four years have outnumbered the achievements of BJP Government. Vijay Mallya led a scam of about Rs.9,000 crore, Nirav Modi of Rs.11,500 crore, Jatin Mehta of Rs.7,000 crore, Nitin Sandesara of Rs.5,000 crore. How were they able to escape with people’s money so easily?”, AP Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu was quoted as saying by the Indian Express report.

“How many more fraud cases before the country sees the true face of BJP government? Behind the facade of false promises lies the truth about farmer debt crisis, rising cases of corruption, attacks on women, communal violence, growing unrest among people and serious threat to democracy,” Naidu was quoted as saying by the report.

Naidu, who met opposition leaders including Aam Aadmi Party chief, Arvind Kejriwal, Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah, urged political parties to come together to take the requisite steps to oust the present NDA Government, noted the report.

Nadu tweeted, “It is the need of the hour for all the leaders of the country to come forth, unite & take necessary steps to protect the country from a state of anarchy. Any kind of threat to our democratic values must face a strong opposition. People’s faith in the government must be restored.”

In the run-up to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Naidu stressed the urgent need to unite against the ruling BJP at the Centre “to protect the country from a state of anarchy.”

Naidu also took to Twitter to list out the “fraud cases” of the Narendra Modi Government, asked how many such cases will the country have to witness “before it sees the true face of the BJP.”

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader also charged the Union Government with discrimination against the newly formed state and failure to grant it a special status, the report said. “Special Category Status was promosed to Andhra Pradesh in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 in order to help the State tackle the financial crisis after bifurcation of the united Andhra into Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. We had an alliance with BJP, but on coming to power, PM Modi failed to fulfil the promises he made to the people of AP before elections”, Naidu charged and added, “The Union Government has shown discrimination against our newly-formed State. In spite of the devastation caused by cyclone Titli, Home Minister Rajnath Singh chose to inaugurate party office in Guntur instead of visiting cyclone-affected areas. People’s trust in BJP government has been shattered.”

Raking up demonetisation and the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax, Naidu said, “Every citizen of this country suffered because of demonetisation, the imposition of GST amplified the crisis. In four years, no honest attempts have been made against black money. Thanks to demonetisation, the country is not growing and even the investors are losing confidence.”
