Hyderabad, January 27 : Ridiculing TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu’s comments on corruption, YSR Congress has said that he has no moral right to speak on the subject and target YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
“His past haunts him as the numerous scams that unfolded during his nine year term are still fresh in the memories of the state polity and he has no moral right to pass unsavoury remarks on our leader,’ party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Sunday.
Of late Chandrababu Naidu has been promising of providing good governance and that he will fight against corruption and eradicate it. “Such statements do not find relevance when they come from Naidu as his nine-year term was laden with scams and corruption,” he said.
The corrupt history of Chandrababu governance was published in the form of a book by CPM as well. The TDP leader telling people that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy did not get bail as he is corrupt is absurd and Naidu should guard his tongue while passing such remarks as his public life has been known to one and all.
Starting off as owner of two-acre land in 1977, he has to tell people as to how he could amass so much of wealth after his entry into politics. He should come clean on the charges of corruption leveled against him before speaking against anyone else, Rambabu said.
From Telgi stamps scam to Yellampalli to irregularities in the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund and allocation of land to IMG, a company that came into being overnight, he has many questions to be answered and Chandrababu should stand the legal scrutiny and get a clean chit before calling anyone names, he said.
He is known to pit one person against the other to get his work done and created wedge among NTR’s family members to consolidate his position and he has lost the moral ground to speak about corruption and ethics in politics, he said.
On Telangana, he said that Congress has been creating confusion by delaying the process. A decision on when Sharmila would resume padayatra will be taken soon, he said. INN
