The war of words between Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah and Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu intensified on Wednesday with the former alleging that Naidu was becoming impatient over the declining popularity of his party.
"Naidu, after sensing the defeat of his party in Telangana bypolls, is getting frustrated and hence making unnecessary comments. We arranged an aircraft to bring him and party leaders from Aurangabad to Hyderabad during the TDP visit to Maharashtra. How can he say that it was a conspiracy by me to bring him back from Maharashtra," Rosaiah told reporters in Hyderabad.
Expressing anger over the reported conspiracy comments of Naidu, the Chief Minister said Naidu, the Opposition Leader, should send the money to the government which was spent on arranging the aircraft for transporting the TDP leaders. "We have brought you to Hyderabad in a respectable manner by arranging an aircraft. Not in some ordinary busses, as you cannot travel all the way. If you do not want us to spend money on you, send the money back we will deposit in the treasury," he said.
"I pity him. His mental condition seems to be bad. Some mental pressures. One is Telangana election. I don’t know if there is something else," Rosaiah said.
