HYDERABAD: TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu’s son Lokesh, who seems to have utilised the just-concluded campaign for the GHMC polls as a testing ground to fine-tune his oratory skills. On Sunday, the last day of campaign, he tried to ape TS CM KCR in hurling satirical remarks.
Lokesh came to his father Naidu’s rescue, who was verbally attacked by KCR during a public meeting held here on Saturday, by hurling choicest fireworks.
Coming back at KCR for commenting that TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu’s wife Bhuvaneswari would be supporting TRS in GHMC polls, Lokesh passed some satirical comments saying, “Today when we asked KCR’s wife why he did not campaign in GHMC polls on behalf of TRS, she replied that he was not able to come out of his house as TRS contribution to Hyderabad’s growth is nil. She further told us that as every development in Hyderabad was done during TDP regime, KCR has decided to confine to his home as he could not face the people, knowing well that electors will question him over his unfulfilled promises.”
The heir apparent of TDP hurled some power-packed potshots at the TS Chief Minister, saying, “I think, this is the first time in India a CM speaking such blatant lies to hoodwink people.”
Earlier, Lokesh led a huge bike rally from Hi-tech City, constructed by TDP government, to NTR Ghat, a memorial to TDP founder NT Rama Rao. Leaders of both TDP and the BJP took part in the rally.
