Naidu’s past will continue to haunt him

Hyderabad, May 15, 2013: Ridiculing
the bravado of TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu who announced that he will take
up the issue of corruption and will be going to the people, YSR Congress has
said that his disgusting past will continue to haunt him as his governance has
pushed people to distress and suicides.

“Naidu telling that he will
don the role of the crusader of corruption does not go well with the people as
they still have the memories of  his nine year term during which they had
undergone severe hardships,” party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters
here on Wednesday.

It is surprising to note that
Naidu has gone to the extent of commenting on the functioning of the Governor
as he did not respond to his memorandum seeking the dismissal of the tainted
ministers. Naidu has vowed to take up the issue with the President, Pranab

The government failed to file
a counter on the 26 GOs in the High Court but ministers filed an affidavit with
the Supreme Court contending that the orders were in tune with the business
rules. It was intentionally done, as the Congress wanted to keep YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy in jail.

To bring some credibility, the
government has arrested one minister Mopidevi Venkataramana before taking YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy into custody.

The names of two ministers
coming out one after the other is only to drag the case for a longer period. If
the ministers could not influence the witnesses how can YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
influence the witnesses? At least that is one ground on which our leader is
kept in jail, he said.

Naidu, instead of going to Raj
Bhavan should have moved a no confidence motion which could have settled the
issue. “But that is not what Naidu wanted. He wanted to save the Kiran Kumar
Reddy government on one hand and at same time wanted to be free from any case
against him,” he said. The past of Naidu is littered with scams, manipulations
and blatant misuse of power and he has no moral right to talk about corruption,
he said.

In IMG Bharatha case, he has
shown undue favour to a lesser known company and issue is still pending with
the courts. The Telgi stamp paper scam, the way his party headquarters was
built by an interested party, the way in which the public sector and
cooperative sector institutions were ruined are still afresh in the memory of
people, he said.

“It was Chandrababu Naidu who
has brought in corporate culture into electioneering and only under his
leadership did the electioneering took a mercantile proposition from a
popularity plank,” Rambabu said.

With such credentials, if
Naidu goes to town speaking about a corruption-free society it looks awkwardly
outrageous, he said.
