Naidu's meet with K'taka governor creates buzz in AP

January 03, 2012 17:17 IST
Telugu Desam Party supremo Chandrababu Naidu's visit to the Karnataka Raj Bhavan on Tuesday has set tongues wagging in Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu held a brief meeting with Karnataka Governor H R Bharadwaj in Bengaluru, but the reason for the visit has been kept hush-hush. Sources claim that Naidu was at the Raj Bhavan to submit records pertaining to the illegal mining scam in Karnataka.

In Andhra Pradesh, Naidu has been making noise about illegal mining. Insiders say that Naidu handed over some documents which allegedly implicates ministers from Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.       

However, Naidu's critics in AP say that if the TDP leader had to submit documents he would hand them over to the Central Bureau of Investigation and not the Karnataka governor. They further say that allegations by YSR Congress President Jaganmohan Reddy's followers that Naidu often cozies up to the Congress may be true. It is often said that here is no opposition in Andhra because of the nexus between the TDP and the Congress.
