VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who openly criticised the Governor’s intervention in the State administrative matters by directly calling up DGP RP Thakur to enquire about the attack on Opposition Leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy at Visakhapatnam airport, is set to take the fight to Delhi. During his visit to Delhi on Saturday, Naidu will ‘expose’ the Centre’s alleged political vendetta against his government.

The CM faulted the Governor’s quick reaction in seeking information from the DGP on the attack without the knowledge of the State government. “What is the purview of the Governor? How can he bypass the procedure and call up the DGP? Is it not wrong on his part? He is supposed to approach the government in written format for information. He does not have the right to call the officials directly,” Naidu felt. 

He is likely to complain to the President and the Union Home Minister against the Governor, sources said. The TDP regime is said to have taken a serious view of the series of income tax raids in the State thereby creating fear among investors.

According to sources in the government and the TDP, the sole purpose of the CM’s visit to Delhi is to address the national media to highlight the Centre’s alleged bias against AP by not fulfilling the provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act and BJP-led government’s ‘vindictive’ attitude after the Telugu Desam snapped its ties with the saffron party.

“The income tax department raids and Governor’s interference in the State affairs are a clear indication that the Centre is trying to destabilise the Telugu Desam government,” sources said.
After snapping ties with the BJP-led NDA, Naidu has been critical of the way in which the Centre is allegedly creating hurdles to his government. 

Though Naidu does not have any meeting with national leaders in Delhi, he may meet any available leader in the national capital, sources said, adding that by taking the fight against the Centre to Delhi he will certainly make friends with anti-BJP parties at a time when the TDP  chief is seriously contemplating bringing non-NDA parties together at the national level.
