Vijayawada: AP marketing minister Mopidevi Venkataramana Rao took a jibe at former chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, saying that drought and Mr were were the twins as there was not much rainfall during his tenure.
Taking part in a short discussion in the Assembly on the minimum support price, Mr Rao alleged that Mr Naidu had failed to work for the welfare to the farmers.
He said the late Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy and his family including his son and Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and the god of rain were twins. The state witnesses good rains which benefits the farmers and the people when they are Chief Minister, he said.
In a counter-attack, he said that the god of rain, Varuna, feared that he might be taken to jail and therefore made it rain. Mr Naidu was referring to Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy attending hearings in the High Court in Hyderabad every Friday in the disproportionate assets case.
