Hyderabad: Congress leader Madhu Goud Yaskhi has alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were behind the arrest of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.
He claimed that he has full information that under a conspiracy of KCR and Modi, the Jagan Mohan Reddy government in Andhra Pradesh arrested Naidu. He alleged that even the efforts to secure Naidu’s release on bail were being stalled.
Yaskhi, who is chairman of Telangana Campaign committee, told reporters that KCR had spent hundreds of crores for the victory of Jagan Mohan Reddy in 2019 elections. He said Naidu and Modi had a kind enmity since the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) quit the BJP-led NDA.
