He condemned Naidu’s remarks against Swamy Swarupanandendra and recalled that TD leaders had met Swamiji along with Chandrababu Naidu. He said that for the TD leaders the Swamiji was a holy man then and now he was a tantric.
He said that Naidu was showing his true colors after the Kuppam gram panchayat defeat and slammed Nara Lokesh for his abusive language in public meetings.
Ramakrishna Reddy stated that the public has rejected Chandrababu Naidu in 2019 and even in the recent panchayat polls they have shown him his place.
He claimed that Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has taken public welfare to the village level without creating any hassles and leaving no scope for corruption....
