Naidu is a bundle of lies, YSRCP

October 8: The ongoing padayatra of TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu is a
farce as he has been telling blatant lies for political gains, YSRCP
spokesperson Ambati Rambabu has said.

“What he has
been telling is a bundle of lies and has been giving contradictory statements.
He has no clarity whether he intends to give free power or he is against it.
His stand on agriculture is also dubious,” he told reporters here on Monday.

He had been
telling people that LPG cylinder during his term as chief minister was only Rs
115 and has gone up to Rs 440. This is a white lie. When TDP came to
power with NTR at the helm in 1994, the cost was Rs 94 per cylinder and when
Naidu rejected by the people in 2004 it was Rs 305, he said.

“It was YSR
who retained the price of Rs 305 for his full term of 5 years and 4 months

“It was YSR
who has waived farmers’ loans and power dues which accumulated in TDP regime as
Chandrababu Naidu termed agriculture as a waste,” he said.

leader has also amended his path in the ongoing padayatra and is speaking of
pensions to physically challenged persons. It was Rs 75 while Naidu was chief
minister and it was increased by YSR to Rs 200 and Rs 500, he said.

After the
by-poll debacle, the TDP leader has been trying to emulate YSR without giving a
proper reply to all his adverse remarks on agriculture, farmers, power charges
and other anti-people decisions he had taken. With such a past, people cannot
be fooled for his political gains, he said. 

When asked
why the Party meetings were postponed to October 10, he said, the Party
Honorary President YS Vijayamma had an appointment with President Pranab
Mukherjee. “Our Party supported his candidature and it is courtesy to call on
him after the elections. We waited this long expecting bail to YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy. After Supreme Court rejected the bail, YS Vijayamma called on him,” he
