During a discussion on the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act in the Assembly on Friday, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu proceeded to lose his cool and threaten BJP lawmakers. Chandrababu Naidu threatened the BJP lawmakers and said that he would not allow them to ‘move freely’ in Andhra Pradesh if they continue to defend the Centre “despite injustice to the Stat”, reported The New Indian Express.
Chandrababu Naidu’s outburst happened after BJP floor leader P Vishnu Kumar Raju started listing out all the institutions that the central government had sanctioned for Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu said, “Shame on you to speak like this. You have no commitment to the development of the State. You are unfit to be a public representative. If we go on listening, you will put flowers in our ears. For whose sake will you give? Whose money is that? For a new State, the Centre should give all institutes. Tell me how many institutes are located in Hyderabad, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat. Compare them. Are you doing tamasha? My blood is boiling. Instead of supporting a new State, it is unfair on your part to speak in such a way”.
Reportedly, when the BJP MLAs raised objections to his remark, Naidu said: “Who cares for your objections?”
Then, in a bizarre rant, Naidu said that he calls the American leaders by name as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton but he referred to PM Modi as “sir” despite the fact that he is “junior” to “satisfy his ego”.
He said he will hold a ‘Deeksha’ on 11th February to demand “justice” for the State.
It is interesting to note that Chandrababu Naidu’s dictatorial outburst comes days after he was seen pontificating about the preservation of democracy and defeating ‘fascist forces’. During the ‘United India’ rally held in West Bengal, Naidu had claimed that Narendra Modi is “destroying the democratic spirit of the country”.
The fact that the ones blaming Narendra Modi for being a “fascist” are themselves responsible for the most fascistic acts does not come as a surprise. Even Mamata Banerjee, under who, the state of West Bengal has seen widespread political murders of BJP workers sermonised about the preservation of democracy.
