CHANDRA Babu Naidu Says United Opposition Will Dislodge Modi Led Govt From Power

ANDHRA Chief Minister Nara Chandra Babu Naidu also heading ruling Telugu Desam Party claims he has received favorable response from several non-NDA political formulations for putting in place a united front to dislodge Narendra Modi led Government at the Centre. They are  unanimous that the  ruling BJP is destroying all democratic  institutions  including The Reserve Bank Of India  and  CBI-Central Bureau of  Investigation, he told reporters after meeting  DMK President M K Stalin at Chennai on Friday. He urged all opposition parties to sink differences in larger national interest. Democracy is in danger. “We are all together in bringing parties on one platform. One or two may have differences of opinion. We (TDP) had differences with Congress for 40 years but at the same time now we are working how to bring together all. Democracy is important. It is for people to sink their differences. People are prepared now,” he told reporters after an hour-long meeting with Stalin at his residence. Naidu had met former Prime Minister H. D. Deve Gowda and Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy in Bengaluru on Thursday .He claims it was fruitful “I am in touch with Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal Chief Minister) and would be meeting her soon as part of these efforts,” he said. Asked about his meet with AICC President Rahul Gandhi last week in New Delhi, he said, “All of us want to join together and save the nation. “The TDP chief deftly avoided answering questions on who will be the face of the opposition grouping against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”There are so many leaders. Even Stalinji is better than Modi. We might have differences with Congress. But when you think of nation, national interest is utmost importance. Everybody is joining together on one platform. Today, you are talking of individuals. I am taking of democracy. If democracy survives only then you can elect leaders. If there is no democracy, there is nothing. “Replying to a question, Naidu said Rahul Gandhi is the Congress President and is the main anchor for the opposition against the BJP and his party has an all India presence. “We are regional parties. Even Mamata Banerjee is strong in West Bengal. I am strong in Andhra Pradesh. Deve Gowda is strong in Karnataka and Stalin is strong in Tamil Nadu,” he said. “I am not the face of the proposed united Opposition”, said Naidu, who is facing stiff opposition in the coming assembly and Lok Sabha elections early next year. “I am not an aspirant. I am only a facilitator. I will bring everybody together,” he said. The DMK President Stalin, who is aligned with Congress, said that he appreciated Naidu’s efforts to bring together opposition parties against the anti-people and communal government of Modi.”I have already welcomed his meeting with Congress President on this account. Naidu has told me that he was planning to convene a meeting of like -minded parties in Delhi or any other state capital to draw up a strategy to defeat BJP in the Lok Sabha polls. I have accepted his invitation,” he said.(pic courtesy : TOI)
