Telugu Desam Party President N Chandrababu Naidu today asked voters to keep graft-tainted leaders out of power and targeted Jaganmohan Reddy-led YSR Congress over the issue of corruption.
Addressing election rallies at Machilipatnam and Pedana this evening, he warned people against electing YSR Congress Party candidates in coming Lok Sabha and assembly polls in Andhra Pradesh. Raking up the corruption case against the YSR Congress chief, the ex-Chief Minister said "CBI officials confiscated Jaganmohan Reddy's illegally-earned property. If you vote for YSR Congress Party, the situation will become worse." Naidu alleged Congress President Sonia Gandhi bifurcated the state in an "unjust" manner with the backing of Jagan and TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao. "We have to reconstruct the state of Andhra Pradesh. It is not known which place will be the new capital. The state is facing a crisis. You should be wise in electing your representatives. Drive away the corrupt leaders and vote for Telugu Desam candidates."
Naidu did not mention anything about his poll alliance with BJP, which ran into trouble briefly.
