Vastavam web: Protests against Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Tamil Nadu reflected the “mood of the nation”, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said Monday. The Tamilians protested with black flags and balloons, against the neglect of the state that suffered damages in cyclone ‘Gaja’, Naidu told his party leaders during a tele-conference here, warning Modi would face much severe protests in Andhra Pradesh.
“The protests in Madurai reflected the mood of the nation against the BJP. Compared to Tamil Nadu, the Centre did grave injustice to AP,” Naidu said. He said there was every need to save the country and also fight for the rights of the states. “We should work with the sole objective of defeating the BJP,” he told the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) rank and file.
Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) cadres, led by party founder Vaiko had on Sunday staged a protest against Modi in Madurai, accusing him of betraying the interests of Tamil Nadu. “There is no party that Daggubati did not join. Starting with the RSS, Daggubati (Venkateswara Rao) joined BJP, TDP, Congress, (again) BJP and now YSRC,” Naidu said. “She (Daggubati Purandeswari) was a Central minister in the Congress government and he was an MLA. They then joined the BJP and now are going to YSRC,” Naidu added.
