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”.
