In a swift development a BJP MLA from Tadepalligudem, P Manikyala Rao, had sent his resignation letter to the Assembly hitting Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu hard for neglecting his constituency. He had sent the resignation letter to the chief minister asking him to forward it to the Assembly speaker for acceptance.
Manikyala Rao, who was a minister in the TDP-BJP cabinet till early this year, took strong exception to the neglect of his constituency by the State government. He said that he had written several letters to the Chief Minister to solve some of the key issues in his constituency. Not a single letter was responded by the chief minister and the State government, he said.
As the BJP leaders are gearing up for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Guntur on January 6, the resignation letter from the legislator had sharpened the party’s teeth to hit out at Chandrababu Naidu for his opportunistic politics. BJP State president Kanna Lakshminarayana had already hinted at the Prime Minister coming to the State fully armed with the programmes to reply to Chandrababu Naidu’s attack on the BJP and the Central government.
While it is not known why the Prime Minister is visiting the Guntur city, the BJP leaders are planning to take advantage of the visit for political mileage. The BJP is preparing its weapons to take on Chandrababu Naidu and his campaign against the BJP and the Prime Minister.
Chandrababu Naidu is releasing the white papers every day where he is taking on Narendra Modi and the BJP leadership for betrayal. In every white paper, the chief minister is giving some statistics to claim success of his government in developing the State and giving more time to hit at the Prime Minister and the BJP leadership. The party is now getting ready to reply to all the allegations being made by Chandrababu Naidu.
It is to be seen how the BJP would take on the TDP chief and his campaign in the name of white papers and the Dharma Porata Deeksha, being held across the state.
