Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu started releasing white papers, a continuation to the white papers that he had released in 2014. The white papers were focused at the growth that the State had achieved in the last four-and-a-half years under his leadership and how the Narendra Modi-led NDA government had done injustice.
While the white papers released in 2014 accused Congress, the white papers this time are pointing an accusing finger at the BJP. The language and accusations are almost the same in both sets of white papers. The only difference is that in 2014 it was the Congress that he had blamed and this time it is the BJP which is being blamed.
He blamed the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not according the special category status to the State, a promise that was made to the State at the time of bifurcation and during the 2014 elections. He also blamed the Prime Minister for not dividing the institutions between the two Telugu States in the last four years.
Chandrababu Naidu alleged that Narendra Modi had done injustice to the State worth Rs 90,283 crore. He took Narendra Modi to target for non-cooperation and doing nothing for the State. “Doing nothing was doing injustice,” Chandrababu Naidu said.
The TDP chief plans to hold protests across the State on January 1, to highlight the injustice and betrayal done by the Narendra Modi government. He had even asked the people to join the protests and not to celebrate the New Year. He wanted the party leaders and the people to hold protests in every village. He would join the protest rally in Guntur on the day.
He wanted people to take revenge against the BJP for betraying them and denying the special category status to the State. However, it is to be seen if people in general believe him and join him or leave him alone for his battle as he too had given up the special category status in the past.
