Amaravati: Emulating Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu promised to make a Muslim a Deputy Chief Minister if the Telugu Desam Party was voted back to power. Besides this, he also promised to open an Islamic Bank exclusively for Muslims and offer interest-free loans to the community. He was addressing an election meeting at Aluru in Kurnool district on Friday.
NDTV with reference to PTI quoted him as saying, “Today is a pious day. You all offer Namaz. You should all also resolve to vote for the TDP and I promise that I will make a Muslim a Deputy Chief Minister.”
Naidu urged Muslims not to fall prey to the false promises of Narendra Modi government and warned if Modi comes back to power, he will conspire to deny voting rights to Muslims. He also said voting Jagan Mohan Reddy is like voting Narendra Modi.
