Why is Naidu so aggressive against Modi?

Why Naidu worried about YCP-BJP tie-up, asks Haribabu

Chandrababu Naidu has held this mass event exactly four years after Narendra Modi's Tirupati visit and speech during 2014 poll campaign (April 30, 2014).

Reeling out promises made by the BJP and Modi to the state, he tore into them, detailing meagre Central funds given to the state under different heads and accused the Centre of lying that special status was not granted to the state on the advice of the 14th Finance Commission.

"He promised to build a capital better than Delhi but he gave only Rs. 1500 crores to Amaravati while Rs. 2500 crores is given to build a statue (Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat)", Naidu added.

Addressing a massive public meeting in this temple town, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president alleged that Modi failed to fulfil the promise made as the prime ministerial candidate of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the presence of Lord Venkateswara.

Naidu wondered why the Centre could not fulfil its promise to Andhra Pradesh when it had extended the special category status to 11 other states and given them industrial incentives for 10 years.

Ruling out any compromise on the demand for special category status, he declared that the TDP will continue its fight.

But the Daily Mail tabloid pointed out it was also a favourite for French kings and had "a distinctly Gallic royal flavour". It's thought by some that Charles and Camilla may be waiting to meet the new Prince with his mother, Queen Elizabeth II .

At the rally, a video clip was played purportedly showing Modi making the assurance on SCS in his speech delivered in Hindi and translated into Telugu by then senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu, now the Vice-President.

Announcing that similar meetings will be organised in all districts, Naidu predicted that the TDP will win all 25 Lok Sabha seats in the state in the next elections and will decide who will be the next prime minister.

"My fight as the Chief Minister is against the Prime Minister for protecting the State's interests".

Before the 2014 elections, the Congress had betrayed Andhra Pradesh by splitting the state in "lawless manner" and left the residual part to its own fate without a capital city, Naidu said. "But now, he is colluding with a tainted party to attack us", he said.

Meanwhile, the YSR Congress - the main opposition party in the state - observed a daylong hunger strike under the Vanchana Vyatireka Deeksha (protest against betrayal) banner at Visakhapatnam on Monday to highlight how the "BJP and TDP had joined hands" to deny special category status to the state. Though four years lapsed Narendra Modi has done nothing to the State.
