A day after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu thrown out at a BJP legislator in the assembly, the saffron party on Saturday called him an “assembly rowdy” and alleged that he was in “deep frustration”. “A frustrated, defeatist Chandrababu Naidu has threatened BJP MLAs Vishnu Kumar Raju &Manikyala Rao in Andhra assembly y’day that @BJP4Andhra leaders will not be permitted to move in the state for exposing TDP,” party spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao tweeted.
The Bharatiya Janata Party is planning a privilege motion against Naidu, Rao said.
“Chandrababu Naidu’s behavior in the assembly reveals that his madness has reached peaks. He is in such deep frustration that he behaved like an ‘assembly rowdy’,” Rao stated.
Naidu had highly criticized BJP’s floor leader, P Vishnu Kumar Raju, in the assembly on Friday when the latter tried to defend the Centre after the chief minister accused the Narendra Modi government of discriminating against south India in allotment of cabinet berths.
“You have no right to be an elected (people’s) representative. Are you doing tamasha? What do you think of yourself? What can you people do? Put me in jail? Don’t we have anguish?” Naidu had asked Raju.
When Raju sought to protest, Naidu had demanded the BJP MLA to “go to Delhi and raise your objection”. “Who wants your objection. We will not leave you till justice is done (to the state),” the Telugu Desam Party chief had said.
Naidu, who snapped ties with the National Democratic Alliance last year, has been highly critical of the BJP-led government over various issues, particularly for not accepting the demand of special category status to the state.
