Chandrababu Naidu strikes peace note, avoids criticism of KCR

Andhra Pradesh and Telangana should cooperate, says Naidu
Hyderabad: TD president N. Chandrababu Naidu is now a completely changed man after he moved to Vijayawada in June. That became evident on Saturday when he participated in the Telangana TD meeting at the party headquarters in which he did not talk anything ill about his Telangana counterpart K. Chandrasekhar Rao which he used to do earlier.
Stressing that he needed to concentrate on AP affairs more due to the people’s mandate there he asked Telangana TD leaders to grow independently as they have now become capable of fighting. He did not make any commitment about his electioneering in the Warangal Lok Sabha polls and asked the leaders to extend their full support to BJP candidate Dr P. Devaiah and work for his victory.
He also met BJP leaders Bandaru Dattatreya, G. Kishen Reddy and Dr K. Laxman at the party office and assured that Telangana TD will work hard for the victory of their candidate.
During the party meetings here earlier he used to say “TD will return to power in Telangana in 2019, I will stay put here only to see TD come to power in Telangana, KCR will be taught a befitting lesson for his divisive politics, KCR I will dwell in your heart etc.” But in a complete reversal on Saturday he said, "AP and TS should cooperate. I invited KCR for the Amaravati function. Now I have to concentrate more on Amaravati like I developed Hyderabad.”
Mr Naidu has named Vijaypal Reddy as the party candidate for the Narayankhed bypoll. LB Nagar MLA R. Krishnaiah criticised Naidu for ignoring the demands of the unemployed who have been waiting for recruitment notifications since 2014 June in AP.
