DECCAN CHRONICLE | Laxmi Pranathi
Visakhapatnam: The arrest and remand of Telugu Desam leader Chandrababu Naidu in connection with the Skill Development scam, have set off a whirlwind of reactions from netizens on social media platforms.
One user remarked, "Happiest man today will be Sr Ntr! At the age of 73, Chandrababu took TDP from Sr Ntr and humiliated him at viceroy hotel!! Now, at the same age, CBN is facing corruption cases and getting arrested!! Karma Never Leaves!! Looks like even Jr Ntr is supporting this arrest!!"
Another user responded thus: "The arrest of Nara Chandrababu Naidu Garu was (part of) Jagan's anarchy. I’m strongly condemning this unlawful arrest. In a democracy, justice, liberty, and the people's voice are sacred. This arrest undermines trust in our democratic institutions."
A tweet read, "We condemn the arrest of our leader Chandra Babu Naidu Garu. Indian democracy has lost (its meaning) today. A person who has a `45000 crore (corruption) case on him is free to be CM and fly out to London, but a true leader is kept behind the bars."
In the midst of these, some individuals seized the opportunity to hold forth on the political landscape in Andhra Pradesh. One tweet read, "Choose your leader wisely. Jagan, who has 31 criminal cases, looted thousands of crores of public money and spent 16 months in jail. Now, it is CBN. Do we really need these parties?"
Interestingly, some are suggesting alternatives. One such tweet stated, "Pawan Kalyan should become the next CM."
