Lokesh says Naidu's judicial remand unjust
DECCAN CHRONICLE | DC Correspondent
Vijayawada: Telugu Desam national general secretary N. Lokesh felt that his father and former chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has been unjustly sent to judicial remand for the crime he never committed.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, he said:
"My anger simmers and my blood boils. Is there no limit to the depths of political vendetta? Why must a man of my father’s calibre, who has accomplished so much for his country, state and Telugu people, endure such injustice? Is it because he never stooped to engage in vendetta or destructive politics? Is it because he envisioned growth, welfare and provided opportunities to people long before others?"
Lokesh maintained that his father never knew a day of rest. He tirelessly strived to transform millions of lives. HIs politics have always been marked by dignity and honesty.
The TD leader said: "I too drew inspiration from his noble path and followed in his footsteps, leaving a comfortable job in America to return to India. It was a tough decision. But I had faith in our nation, our systems, our foundational principles and above all our Constitution."
Lokesh went on to say: "Today, I feel like a betrayal. But my father is a fighter and so am I. We will rise with an unstoppable force, guided by unwavering determination for welfare of AP and Telugu people worldwide."
