N. Chandrababu Naidu, the leader of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), has penned a letter while incarcerated for a period exceeding one month. In this letter, he reaffirms his commitment to unveiling the party’s manifesto for the Dussehra festival.
Naidu, who was detained on September 9 on charges related to a multi-crore skill development scandal, had previously promised to introduce a comprehensive party manifesto for Dussehra.
In his communication to TDP workers, the former three-term Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh conveyed that though he may be physically imprisoned, his presence remains firmly entrenched in the hearts of the people. He emphasized that his unwavering focus has always been on the progress and well-being of the Telugu populace.
Significantly, the Mahandu event transpired in Rajamahendravaram, Andhra Pradesh, where Naidu was subsequently confined and is currently held in judicial custody at the Rajamahendravaram jail.
Naidu leveled allegations against the ruling YSRCP, claiming that they have incarcerated him to distance him from the public sphere, likely in an attempt to avert an electoral defeat. Furthermore, he asserted that concerted efforts are being made to tarnish his reputation through concocted conspiracies.
In his letter, Naidu divulged that his wife, Nara Bhuvaneswari, will act as his spokesperson during his absence and engage with the public through a campaign called ‘Nijam Gelavali.’
Meanwhile, Naidu’s son and the General Secretary of the TDP, Nara Lokesh, criticized Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and YSRCP leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on social media.
In a recent development, the Supreme Court has instructed the Andhra Pradesh police not to apprehend former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu in the FibreNet case until a judgment is rendered regarding the plea connected to the Skill Development scam case.
