Hyderabad: The TDP chief Mr. N. Chandrababu Naidu has announced that Rajya Sabha member Dr. M V Mysoora Reddy would be his party’s candidate for the Kadapa Lok Sabha seat and B.Tech Ravi would be the party candidate for the Pulivendula Assembly seat.
Talking to newsmen here on Wednesday afternoon, he has expressed confidence that his party would win both seats. He said the split in the Congress vote would benefit his party. He said the fight was between morality and immorality and democracy and muscle power.
Referring to the Congress party trying to field his party leader in Kadapa, he said it showed the bankruptcy of that party. He said if that party was unable to find a suitable candidate from its leaders or cadres and had to entice TDP men, it showed the fate of that party, Mr. Naidu commented. “May be some of our leaders were corrupt. But our cadre is in tact. We will not loose even a single vote. We are going to win” he said.
Mr Chandrababu Naidu has expressed strong support to the fast taken up by social activist Anna Hazare against corruption. Referring to the comment of the central leaders that Hazare had taken a hasty step, Naidu has asked how could that be a hasty step. “Is it late that he took such a step even after 73 to 74 lakh crores of rupees of black money was siphoned out of the country; even after there was a 2 G scam of 1.75 lakh crore rupees and after Dr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy has swindled 1 lakh crore rupees” he questioned.
