Setting another low benchmark in already lower political discourse, Andhra Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu on Saturday referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an ‘Anaconda’ and claimed that PM Modi is swallowing the national institutions.
In a statement, TDP politburo member and state Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu asked if there was a “bigger anaconda” than Modi. ” Modi has been swallowing institutions like CBI, RBI and others. How could he be a saviour?,” said Ramakrishnudu.
According to the reports, the Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister slammed the opposition YSR Congress and Jana Sena, claiming that they are hungry for power and do not have any responsibility towards the nation. “Those two parties are, hence, supporting Modi who has been destroying national institutions and democracy,” he added.
“Every Tom, Dick and Harry is speaking of past politics. Past can’t be present or future. But present and future will become past. The critics of TDP (Telugu Desam Party) should understand this. TDP was not established against any single party. It was founded against the system,” he said in another comment.
BJP state president Kanna Lakshminarayana responding to the remark against the Prime Minister lashed out at TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and said he was the “king of corruption” and fears that his alleged corruption would be exposed now.
“N Chandrababu Naidu is the king of corruption and will stoop to any level. The man who passed a resolution in the NDA meeting in 2017, that Modi should become prime minister again is now trying to portray the latter as a culprit,” said Lakshminarayana.
The opposition leaders such as Mani Shankar Aiyar have frequently abused Prime Minister Narendra Modi by referring to him ‘Chaiwala’ and ‘Neech Insan’ as an attempt to lower the dignity of Narendra Modi. Congress leaders like Manish Tiwari and Digvijaya Singh have often resorted to using derogatory words against the Prime Minister.
Another abusive Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has abused Prime Minister Modi several times and recently had used foul language to refer PM Modi as ‘illiterate and uncouth’.
