Guntur (Andhra Pradesh) [India], Mar 15 (ANI): Andhra Pradesh IT Minister Nara Lokesh on Friday called YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy a stooge of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao.
While addressing party leaders in Mangalgiri, he said, “Jagan is an actor. YSRCP did not release the list of his party candidates, as KCR did not finalise. KCR is searching for YSRCP candidate for Pulivendula constituency.”
Lokesh also said that Reddy is suffering from ‘Naiduphobia’.
“Jagan once saw a cow in his meeting and alleged that it was sent by Chandrababu.  Jagan cannot live without taking the name of NCBN,” he said.
He further alleged that YSRCP leaders were caught red-handed using cars belonging to TRS in their election campaign.
“First, he (Jagan) created hysteria around MPs resignation and murder attempt on him,” he added.
He further praised Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu for ‘development work’ being done in the state.
“After bifurcation, Andhra Pradesh was drowned in the ocean of problems. Our CM with 40 years of experience could pull out the state from those problems At 68 yrs, Naidu is working so hard. I am only 36, but unable to catch up to his speed,” he said.
He urged people to vote for TDP and ‘rewrite history’. “TDP has not won in Mangalgiri for a long time now. Let us rewrite history,” he said.
Lokesh promised to develop Mangalgiri as IT hub if voted to power.
“I brought many IT companies to Mangalagiri. Give me a chance to be your MLA. I will take the responsibility of developing Mangalagiri as IT hub,” he said.
Lok Sabha and legislative elections will be held simultaneously in Andhra Pradesh. The results will be announced on May 23. (ANI)
