The Telugu Desam, if voted to power, will constitute a separate commission to deal with cases of corruption and see that money earned by corrupt means is confiscated and spent on the welfare of the people, party president N Chandrababu Naidu has said.
In his wrapping-up remarks after being elected as party president for the ninth time at the Mahanadu conclave at Gandipet here on Tuesday night, Naidu said that he had no enmity with or vindictive attitude towards any leader. “As an opposition leader I am fighting against the corrupt practices of YS Jagan,” he explained.
Naidu alleged that chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s two brothers were acting as extra-constitutional authorities. “One brother is involved in Chittoor and TTD affairs. The endowments minister could throw more light on the extra-constitutional activities of the chief minister’s brothers. The second brother of the chief minister is involved in transfer of IPS and IAS officers,” Naidu alleged.
Even money changed hands in the transfer of officers, Naidu alleged and said that the chief minister was signing the orders only after his brother struck deals behind the scene. Money changed hands even in the finalisation of the tenders for the third-phase of Krishna water works, he alleged.
Naidu said that the TRS could not win a majority of seats in any general election. He said that the YSRCP was eager to merge with Congress if Jagan is granted bail.
Claiming that the TDP to be the only alternative in state politics, Naidu said that TDP’s victory in the next elections was a historic necessity. He assured that he would sign the first file as chief minister on waiver of farm loans and the second would be to cancel all liquor belt shops in the state.
Naidu reiterated that BC, Brahmin, minority, SC and ST declarations would be implemented if the TDP regained power.
