Vijayawada, May 27 (IANS) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday mounted a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he survives only on publicity.

A day after the Modi government completed four years in office, NDA’s former ally Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief described it as a “government of more talk less action”.

Addressing the 34th ‘Mahanadu’ or annual conclave of his party, which began here, he also predicted that regional parties will come to power after the next general elections and that his party will play a crucial role in national politics.

It is the first TDP conclave after the party pulled out of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government in March over the Centre’s refusal to accord special category status to the state.

The TDP leader slammed the Modi government, saying none of its populist slogans like ‘Make in India’, ‘Startup India’ and ‘Standup India’ yielded the desired results.

“Has anybody benefited from Modi’s schemes?” asked the TDP leader in his inaugural address at the three-day meet.

He said demonetisation destroyed the Indian banking system and people had to run around the banks to get their own hard-earned money. He alleged that the Goods and Services Tax imposed a burden on the common man.

Naidu said people lost confidence in the banking system due to scams. “According to a survey there is 61 per cent corruption in the central government. What is your answer?” he asked his audience.

He reminded the BJP of its poll promise to implement the Swaminathan Commission report to bail out the agricultural sector.

Naidu remarked that BJP’s claim of being a party with a difference is ridiculous as its leaders were caught red-handed while trying to buy MLAs in Karnataka.

The Andhra Chief Minister said that Modi faced a public protest in Tamil Nadu for interfering in the state’s politics by using the Cauvery water dispute as an excuse.

The Chief Minister also alleged that the central government is taking revenge on Andhra Pradesh for demanding fulfilment of the commitments made by the then government when Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated to carve out Telangana state.

Naidu also claimed that the Modi government tried to take over Tirupati temple under this conspiracy. He warned that anybody resorting to such a move will have to pay a heavy price.

Declaring that a special category status is the right of Andhra Pradesh, Naidu said he would not to rest till this was achieved.

Naidu predicted that regional parties would form the government at the Centre after the 2019 general elections. Amid loud cheers from his party cadres, he said the BJP’s dream of retaining power will remain unfulfilled.

The TDP chief told the delegates that their party will retain power in the state and play a key role in national politics also.

Stating that the TDP has 70 lakh workers, he said only it could build a new Andhra Pradesh and bring a change in national politics.

Party delegates from both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are attending the conclave, which will pass 34 resolutions on various issues. The key political resolution will be adopted on the last day.

Kamal Nath

Bhopal, Sep 30 : Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath on Wednesday expressed confidence that his party will regain power in the state after the byelections to 28 Assembly seats.

The former chief minister was addressing a poll rally in Sitamau in Suvasara assembly constituency in Mandsaur district.

“They (BJP) have toyed with the Constitution framed by Babasaheb Ambedkar. They have formed government through horse-trading, but people of the state will give them a befitting reply and they (Congress and people) will celebrate Diwali together,” Nath said.

Bypolls in Madhya Pradesh will be held on November 3, while counting will take place on November 10.

“Whenever you talk about employment and farmers, BJP leaders start talking about Pakistan and China to divert attention from core issues,” Nath said.

“We waived loans of 27 lakh farmers and the BJP government admitted it on the floor of Assembly. After coming back to power, we will waive the loans of remaining farmers too,” he said.

“I am openly challenging chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to have a public debate on the issue (of loan waiver),” the Congress leader added.

“What kind of future you want, a government formed with vote or one formed with notes?…. If their will prevails, they will not even conduct panchayat polls,” he alleged.

The 15-month-old Congress government led by Nath fell in March this year after Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 MLAs loyal to him quit the party and joined the BJP.

Later three more Congress MLAs resigned. Three other seats got vacant due to the death of sitting MLAs.

TheCongress has fielded Rakesh Patidar from the Suvasara seat for the by-poll.

Priyanka Gandhi

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi took on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath for the death of Hathras rape victim, saying he doesn’t have any moral right to continue as chief minister.

“I was on the phone with the Hathras victim’s father when he was informed that his daughter had passed away. I heard him cry out in despair. He had just been telling me that all he wanted was justice for his child. Last night he was robbed of the chance to take his daughter home for the last time and perform her last rites,” Gandhi said in her first two tweets on the issue on Wednesday.

She also asked Adityanath to resign. “@myogiadityanath RESIGN. Instead of protecting the victim and her family, your government became complicit in depriving her of every single human right, even in death. You have no moral right to continue as Chief Minister,” Gandhi tweeted.

The 19-year-old died in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday. The woman was admitted there in a critical condition after being brutally raped by four men in her village in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district.

The incident took place on September 14. She was first admitted to JN Medical College and Hospital in Aligarh, but was shifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital after her condition deteriorated where she breathed her last.

The UP government has been facing flak from Opposition parties over the issue. Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had said that “no hope” is left from the “insensitive government”.

Reacting to the incident, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati tweeted in Hindi, “The news of the death of the Dalit girl after gangrape in Hathras, UP, is very sad. The government should provide all possible help to the victim’s family and ensure quick punishment to the culprits by prosecuting them in a fast-track court.”

The Congress has questioned the “silence” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and women leaders of his party and alleged that Uttar Pradesh under the Yogi Adityanath government has become the country’s “crime capital”.

At a press conference, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate alleged that for eight days no gangrape charges were pressed in the matter and that the UP chief minister’s information advisor and Agra Police kept calling the incident “fake news”.

By tagging to Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, Health and Family welfare minister, B. Sreeramulu and Medical Education minister K. Sudhkar, he angrily questioned, “What is the government trying to hide by underreporting? “Is it your failure?” he retorted.
