A day before the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the State, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu called upon the TDP cadres to observe Sunday as a ‘protest day’. Describing the day as a “bad and dark day”, he observed that the PM was visiting the State to rub salt into the wound and wanted the TDP brigade to take out protest rallies and express their resentment in a peaceful manner by wearing yellow and black shirts and flying yellow and black balloons in the air.
During a teleconference with the party leaders on Saturday, he alleged that opposition YSRC was extending its cooperation to the BJP.
“YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is not uttering a single word on Modi’s betrayal to AP, proving his disloyalty to the Andhra people,” he said.
After himself indulging in Rafale scam, Modi is resorted to mudslinging on the opposition parties. “Our protests against the three Modis — Narendra Modi, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, K Chandrasekhar Rao — must be peaceful,’’ he said.
