Congress MP Chiranjeevi laughs at Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu’s announcement that he would give 100 party tickets to Backward Classes in the next elections does not seem to have any takers. He said…
“In the previous elections, too, the TDP president made a similar announcement. But he failed to stick to his promise and could not give even half of the total number of tickets to BCs. At least in the next elections, he should keep up his promise to field at least 100 BCs. But I don’t think anybody would believe him,” he said.
Chiranjeevi reminded that he had given nearly 100 tickets to the BCs in the 2009 elections on behalf of the Praja Rajyam Party which he had founded in the past, as part of his party’s slogan of achieving social justice.
“I will be very happy if the TDP president, too, strives for the social justice at least within his party,” he said.
