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

Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Sun­day in­voked the legacy of late Andhra Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter N T Rama Rao to ques­tion TDP supremo N Chan­drababu Naidu's move to align with the Congress, say­ing NTR's "atma" would be "hurt" on see­ing this.

Veter­ans like Tel­ugu De­sam Party (TDP) founder NTR, as he is ad­dressed, were "in­sulted" by the ar­ro­gance of the "naam­dars (fa­mous)" of the Delhi fam­ily, Modi said in an ap­par­ent ref­er­ence to the Congress party.

Ad­dress­ing a BJP rally here, Modi ques­tioned the ra­tio­nale be­hind Naidu's plan to tie up with Congress, re­mind­ing him that his party's very ex­is­tence was born out of the 'in­sult' meted out to his father-in-law by the grand old party.
