PM a puppet, incompetent: Chandrababu Naidu
Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his failure to run the country effectively.
Addressing a press conference here, Naidu described the Prime Minister as a ‘puppet’ in the hands of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. He alleged that Singh was not in a position to take decisions on his own and failed to perform his duties as the Prime Minister independently.
Describing him as ‘incompetent’, he said that entire country was pushed into crisis by Congress President Sonia Gandhi who is controlling the government through remote control.
Reacting on the fall of Rupee, Naidu said that despite being an economist, the Prime Minister failed to control both external and internal factors that led to the collapse of currency. Stating that except her surname, Sonia Gandhi had no other qualification to rule the country.
He said misadministration and indifferent attitude led to rampant corruption across the country. The situation is so worse that the Prime Minister is unable to take action against his cabinet colleagues who were involved in corruption.
The TDP chief also slammed the Prime Minister for his silence on the Samaikhyandhra agitation going on in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions.
