Used chai-cups should have been given instead of the country: Derogatory ‘Chaiwala’ posters at Chandrababu Naidu dharna

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has been sitting on a day-long dharna and fast at AP Bhawan in New Delhi to seek special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

In yet another political low, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu has caused huge controversy after derogatory posters which took a cheap slur at the humble origins of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi appeared at the venue.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has been sitting on a day-long dharna and fast at AP Bhawan in New Delhi to seek special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

During his protest event, his party workers have resorted to putting up posters which read “Jiske Haath Mein Chai ka Jhoota cup Dena Tha, Uske Haath Mein Janata Ne Desh De Diya”, which meant that ‘the person who should have been given a used teacup, has been given the country by the people”.

However, TDP MP Jayadev Galla reacted to those posters seen at the venue of the ongoing protest said, “We don’t endorse it. It is not correct and it should not be done. It must not have been put by our party people.”

The TDP chief is staging the ‘Dharma Porata Deeksha’ (a day-long protest for justice) at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan in the national capital from 8 am to 8 pm on Monday. He will also submit a memorandum to President of India Ram Nath Kovind on February 12. Congress President Rahul Gandhi has also joined Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu’s day-long hunger strike against the central government.
