Chandrababu Naidus convoy was blocked by BJP leaders in Kakinada.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s convoy was blocked by Bharatiya Janata Party leaders while he was going to attend a programme on Friday.
Mr Naidu was in East Godavari district for the ‘Janmabhoomi maa vooru’ event in Kakinada when BJP leaders, including some corporators, raised slogans against the chief minister saying ‘CM go back’. The incident prompted the chief minister to lash out at the protesting BJP workers.
“You will get beaten up. Don’t invite unnecessary trouble. You will be finished. Do you support the injustice meted out to AP? If you go on the streets, people will teach you a lesson,” he said.
The BJP leaders were protesting allegedly over the comments made by Mr Naidu against Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently. Mr Naidu had accused the prime minister of betraying the people of Andhra Pradesh by not granting special status to the state.
On Tuesday, Mr Naidu had claimed that he bowed down to satisfy the ego of Prime Minister Modi for getting things done for his state, yet the central government did not cooperate in the last four years.
PM Modi was scheduled to visit the state on January 6 but subsequently postponed his visit to later this month.
