VIJAYAWADA: APCC president N Raghuveera Reddy Tuesday described Telugu Desam MPs as ‘slaves and beggars’  who were dancing attendance on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and praising him sky-high in Parliament despite the fact that the people here were seething with anger as they had not honoured the promises made by them at the time of bifurcation of AP. 

The APCC president said: “The TDP MPs almost prostrated before Modi in Parliament when the issue of promises made during the AP State Reorganisation Act was being discussed. They appeared more like slaves and beggars. Both the TDP and BJP MPs have failed to make the Prime Minister respond to the questions raised by Sonia Gandhi.”

He accused Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu of double-speak. “In Hyderabad, he said his wings had been clipped but in Delhi his MPs fawned over Modi all the time. Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, using his oratorical skills, only tried to project himself a leader committed to keeping promises and that he was being misunderstood,” he said and wondered how Venkaiah Naidu could say special status had no legal sanctity. “In fact, it was he who had bragged that the BJP would accord Special Status to AP for 10 years though then prime minister Manmohan Singh had promised such status for five years.
