'Next elections, Jagan will get 23 seats'

'Next elections, Jagan will get 23 seats'

Hitting out at YSR Congress for painting the government buildings and village secretariats with party flag color, AP Bharatiya Janata Party leader Somu Veerraju has fired at the state government and demanded to change those colors immediately. He went on to question, "what kind of message does CM Jagan wants to give with this activity?"

The senior leader and former MLC made these comments after kickstarting 'Gandhi Sankalpa Yatra' in Vemuru of Guntur district. Somu also demanded the government to quickly release the pending funds of Rs 120 cr for weavers. Giving a reason why TDP got just 23 seats, the BJP leader said it is because ex-CM Chandrababu Naidu had distributed govt funds like anything. 'Jagan is no different from Chandrababu and he too will face with a similar fate in the coming polls,' predicted the senior BJP leader.

He further said 'Is it not true that Chandrababu claimed that he will stop BJP's growth before the election. He made Galla and Balakrishna to attack Modi. Naidu has also insulted PM Modi for bringing Ganga river water to Amaravati when the foundation stone was laid. He made his party supporters to burn the effigies of Modi when TDP was in partnership with BJP.'

Furthermore, Somu Veerraju added 'Babu is scared to learn the growth of BJP in state and so, he is searching for various ways to ally with BJP again'.
