JC Flays Jagan, Pats Naidu
Anantapur: Rayalaseema senior leader JC Diwakar Reddy made sensational remarks on Thursday. While criticising YSRCP, he tried to justify his decision to join the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). He openly admitted that he joined TDP as there was no better alternative in the State. He said that he did not join YSRCP because he was not confident of Jagan’s abilities. “He is not fit for politics,” he observed. And Congress lost its charisma and is in internal strife, so I chose TDP, he explained.
“All those who want to realise their dreams must vote for Chandrababu Naidu next time also,” he suggested. He was speaking at ‘Niru-Miru’ programme held at Pamidi in Anantapur district on Thursday.
Accepting that he too has a bit of feeling for caste, he said that he is not the kind of a person, who hates other castes. “Even I want to be on Jagan’s side. But what can he do? He is just a ‘vedhava’ (stupid). I’m sorry, maybe I shouldn’t use such words, I withdraw it. Since Jagan is inefficient and there is no efficient leader around, under unavoidable circumstances I joined TDP. Amongst all the leaders, it is Naidu who has the ability to develop the State. Hence I joined his party.” he said.
However, he questioned how Naidu would be able to complete Polavaram by 2019. Reminding that a machine was destroyed after spending Rs. 80 crores and it would take three or four months to replace it, he talked about the losses and delays. The fact is that Naidu’s goals are big and good. We need to vote for him for our sake and for the sake of our children, Diwakar Reddy Reddy said.
