Naidu will give up Yatra midway: Owaisi

Lashing out at the TDP
president N.Chandrababu Naidu’s ‘Vastunna Meekosam’ padayatra, MIM MP Asaduddin
Owaisi said people would not believe Naidu’s Yatra as it is only meant to
regain his lost political power.

Speaking to reporters
at the 37th death anniversary of his grandfather M.M.A.Abdul Owaisi
in Hyderabad on Wednesday, Owaisi said Naidu began the Yatra to regain his
political power. He also predicted Naidu will wind up his Padayatra midway and
would not realize his dream of becoming CM again.

Describing the Praja
Prasthanam Padayatra of the late YSR as a unique one, Owaisi said no other
Yatra can be compared to the YSR’s.

“As YSR undertook the
Padayatra in 2003 and came into power 2004, Naidu copied the idea and began his
Yatra just to become the CM again,” he said, adding Naidu can’t realize his day

Observing that there is
a basic difference between the two padayatras, Owaisi said YSR undertook the
Yatra to know the basic problems of the people directly and this helped him
become the CM later.

Naidu, however, began
his Yatra just for the sake of power and it won’t be of any use to him, Owaisi
said, adding that the Yatras should be undertaken to understand people’s
problems and not for attaining political power.

Taking a dig at Naidu’s
promise to offer seats to Muslims, he said it is preposterous for Naidu to
appease Muslims now. “He implemented no welfare schemes during his 9-year
tenure and how can people believe him now?” he asked. “Muslims will drive him
away from villages.”
