Modi takes dig at Andhra CM; says he only repli­cated Cen­tre’s schemes

Business Standard - - ECONOMY & PUBLIC AFFAIRS - PRESS TRUST OF IN­DIA

Tak­ing a swipe at Andhra Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Chan­drababu Naidu, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi Sun­day said he had only repli­cated the Cen­tre’s de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes in­stead of his as­sur­ance of ini­ti­at­ing new schemes for the poor in the state.

Ad­dress­ing a rally, Modi said Naidu had claimed he was his se­nior but in­stead was “a se­nior in switch­ing sides and ditch­ing his father-in-law, N T Rama Rao, for­mer chief min­is­ter.”

Naidu promised the sun­rise of Andhra Pradesh but is fix­ated with the rise of his own son N Lokesh, Modi charged.

The Chief Min­is­ter promised the re­de­vel­op­ment of Amaravati but is now en­gaged in his own de­vel­op­ment, the Prime Min­is­ter al­leged.

He said Naidu had not ini­ti­ated any new pro­grammes for the poor but was only putting his stamp on the NDA govern­ment's de­vel­op­ment schemes.
