Speaking further, he questioned the credentials of rival leaders in governance and administration.
"What Jagan has? What Rahul has? We are experienced. We have a track-record of administration. Nation has suffered because of corruption and lack of leadership in the last ten years. There was no governance. This is people's mandate and justice has won," Naidu said.
Naidu's son Nara Lokesh thanked people for Telugu Desam’s big win in Seemandhra and also for the good show in Telangana.
“The credit goes to people and party cadre. People were impressed by TD’s welfare and development plank and voted the party to victory. Though some surveys were against us, people stood by us,” he said.
