PM Modi said Naidu, who promised the sun­rise of Andhra Pradesh, is “fix­ated” with the “rise of his own son” N Lokesh.

The PM fur­ther slammed Naidu say­ing that the Andhra Pradesh CM has made a “Uturn” on his prom­ises of de­vel­op­ment in the state. “The state govern­ment has not ini­ti­ated any new pro­gramme for the de­vel­op­ment of the state. Rather it is putting stamps on the Cen­tre’s de­vel­op­ment schemes,” PM Modi said.

Stat­ing that the Cen­tre has given to AP more than what was men­tioned in spe­cial sta­tus, the PM said, “Naidu ac­knowl­edged this pack­age but took a U-turn as they failed to use the funds in the ap­pro­pri­ate way.”

In a ri­poste to Naidu, who had said that he is a “wealth cre­ator” and PM Modi has “no idea” about wealth cre­ation, the PM said, “From Am­ra­vati to Polavaram, they are busy in cre­at­ing wealth for them­selves and that is why are scared of this chowki­dar as the Cen­tre had sought de­tails of ev­ery paisa given to the state.”

“I want to re­mind Naidu that our aim is not to cre­ate wealth for our­selves but to cre­ate wealth for the na­tion,” he added.

Com­ment­ing on the black bal­loon protests against him by TDP work­ers, Modi quipped he wel­comed it re­call­ing the tra­di­tion of smear­ing black to ward off the “evil de­signs”.
