The ongoing tussle between the Narendra Modi government at the Centre and the Trinamul Congress party government headed by Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal over the CBI raids came in handy for Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
The TDP chief, who has been projecting himself as a fighter against the Modi government, sought to cash in on Mamata’s fight against the CBI.
It has strengthened his argument that the Modi government is harassing the regional parties which are fighting against the discriminating politics of the Centre.
Soon after the Mamata’s aggressive stand against the CBI authorities who were detained by the Kolkata police for raiding the house of city police commissioner, Naidu was the first one to tweet his support to Mamata Didi.
Not only that, Naidu left for New Delhi on Monday afternoon to have a meeting with all anti-BJP parties to discuss the Centre’s highhanded behavior.
He is also planning to visit Kolkata later in the evening to extend his solidarity with Mamata Banerjee so that he can get national recognition for their fight with the Centre.
In the morning, Naidu told the party functionaries over a teleconference that that the BJP government had been reopening old cases against the opposition leaders in the country during the elections time.
He alleged that Modi and BJP president Amit Shah had been misusing the central investigative agencies to torture opposition leaders across the country, which is bad precedent in democracy.
Naidu said that as Banerjee’s Kolkata rally was a grand success, the BJP leaders harassing her now by using the Central Bureau of Investigation.
He said that he will discuss with all party leaders on how to take it up as national issue to protect the federal structure and to save the democracy, in New Delhi.
He said that even in AP too, Modi had tried to intimidate the state government by entrusting the case of knife attack on YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy to National Investigation Agency. This is a direct interference in the state affairs, he charged.
