Naidu resents KTR comment on Lagadapati survey

Hyderabad: AP Chief Minister and TDP national president N Chandrababu Naidu today commented on the poll survey conducted by Lagadpati Rajgopal which predicted victory of Mahakutami in Telangana State.

Participating in an election meeting at Sattupalli in Khammam district, the AP CM said even Lagadpati survey also predicted winning of Mahakutami. Taking a dig at KCR, Chandrababu Naidu said Lagadpati had conducted a survey two months ago in which he had said that TRS would win 90 seats. When this prediction came, KCR appreciated the survey, but now KCR was criticising Lagadpati, who after two months, conducted the survey, which predicted that the TRS was going to lose the elections, Chandrababu Naidu said. He appealed to people to defeat ruling TRS party. TDP candidate Sandra Venkat Veeriah supported by Kutami is constesting for Sattupally seat.

Meanwhile, former MP Lagadapati, reacting to twitter of KTR that survey was changed on the pressure, clarified that he was not a person to change the survey on pressure by anybody. Lagadpati said he gives importance to character and not for individual. KTR in his twitter, alleged that the survey was changed under the pressure of Chandrababu Naidu. Earlier survey had predicted that TRS would win 65 to 70 seat, but latest survey says TRS is going to lose the elections.

He sought the help from voters supporting Aswaraopeta candidate M Nageswara Rao. At that point of time, AP CM has come down heavily at TRS Chief KCR alleging that he has become the problem to Telangana State. In Sathupally constituency also, TDP Chief has made scathing at TRS and its chief and sought support from the voters to give votes to Praja Front candidate Sandra Venkat Veeraiah.

Naidu dubs KCR as opportunist

In Kodad public meeting, Chandrababu Naidu described KCR as an “opportunist”. Appealing people to defeat TRS party, Chandrababu Naidu said KCR is a lier and after December 11 he will be known as a former CM. Condemning the arrest of Revanth Reddy, AP CM found fault with the way Revanth was arrested in mid night by gate-crashing of his house. Chandrababu Naidu said people are not attending public meetings of KCR. This election should be last election for TRS party, he said and questioned KCR who prevented not to fulfil his promises made to people like providing double bed room, water to every house, making a dalit as CM, distribution of three acre land to Dalits and making a woman as minister? AP CM said Prajakutami has efficiency to put the administration on a right track in Telangana state.

Addressing an election meeting here, Chandrababu Naidu said Telangana state was rich and had surplus funds after bifurcation. But KCR made the state as debt state, he alleged. Chandrababu Naidu arrived here in support of Kutami candidate Uttam Padmavati who is contesting from Kodad assembly seat and shared dias with Rahul Gandhi. It was ridiculed that Telangana CM not went to secretariat on a single day. There is no water in Mission Bhagirat pipeline, he said adding that only pipe line was laid.

Launching a scathing attack on KCR, Chandrababu Naidu alleged that KCR never meet people and visited rural areas after he becoming CM of Telangana State. But now he is meeting people just for votes.
