లోకేశ్ తండ్రి, జషోదాపతి: దిగజారిన రాజకీయ చర్చ|| Modi, Chandrababu Personal Attacks||

Narendra Modi, Chandrababu Naidu exchange barbs: TDP, BJP bicker while Andhra Pradesh is neglected Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a blistering attack on Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in Amaravati, while Naidu prepared to target the NDA regime in Delhi by rallying his friends in the Opposition, including his new-found ally, Congress. As political battle lines are drawn between Modi and his rivals on the eve of the elections, the people of the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh are caught in the political cross fire, with their concerns pushed to the back seat in the political slugfest between the BJP and TDP. Modi's speech was sharp and satirical on Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh, besides an unsubstantiated defence of his government's track record in helping the state hard hit by the arbitrary bifurcation. The prime minister claimed that projects worth over Rs 3 lakh crore were given to the state. But he failed to explain whether the bifurcation act was implemented by his government in its letter and spirit. The state of Andhra Pradesh, like any other state in India, has its own share of central funds as per the recommendations of the Finance Commission.
