“The Prime Minister is playing with the sentiments of Andhra Pradesh. If he continues doing so Andhra Pradesh will make him disappear from history soon,” Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief Naidu said during a bicycle rally rally from Venkatayapalem village in Amaravati to the state legislative assembly at Velagapudi.
“PM Modi is underestimating the power of Telugu people. The BJP is trying to weaken the state, which will never happen,” the chief minister added.
“Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi tried to topple the NTR government in 1984. Everybody knows what happened after that. If PM Modi plays with our sentiments. He will have to face the same,” Naidu added.
On Friday, not only TDP but the Opposition also stepped up protest against BJP-led central government to demand special category status for Andhra Pradesh and implementation of the promises made in the AP Reorganisation Act-2014.
