Telugu Desam Party leader Kesineni Srinivas took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in the Lok Sabha ahead of the Trust Vote on No-Confidence Motion.
Srinivas said while hearing the Prime Minister, he felt like watching a “Bollywood blockbuster film.”
“I thought for one and a half hours I was watching a Bollywood blockbuster film. I have no doubt Prime Minister would have been the best actor in the world,” Srinivas said in the Lower House of the Parliament.
Meanwhile, TDP leaders staged protest in the Lok Sabha during Prime Minister Modi’s speech on the No-Confidence Motion.
Soon after the Prime Minister started his speech, leaders of the Telegu Desam Party started shouting “We want justice” forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to intervene in between and ask them to stop.
“Atal Bihari Vajpayee created three states - Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. It was done peacefully. These states are now prospering. However, on the other hand, Congress divided Andhra Pradesh and their conduct then was shameful,” the Prime Minister said.
“When TDP was leaving NDA, I called up (Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister) N. Chandrababu Naidu, warned him that you are falling into YSR Congress’s trap. I want to tell the people of Andhra Pradesh that we will keep working for them. We will do everything possible for the development of the state,” he added.
The No-Confidence Motion was moved by the Telegu Desam Party (TDP) over Andhra Pradesh Special Category status issue.
