Jagan lied about Jayalalithaa: Chandrababu

TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu has responded on AP CM YS Jagan's claims that late and former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa had done administration from Ooty which is a hill station.

"Being a CM, Jagan is lying in the Assembly and his comments on Jayalalithaa are absolutely untrue. Jayalalithaa had been to Ooty only to take rest. However being the CM, she used to look after day-to-day activities which is common," said Chandrababu.

The TDP boss also found fault with Jagan that there is no word called 'Capital' in the constitution.

Here is what Jagan said!

"There is no word 'Capital' as such in the constitution but it is mentioned as 'Administration Place.' A CM is head of the government and secretariat and the individual can operate government from wherever he wants. There is no need of a law or a bill for it and the government has the power to decentralize it. In the past Jayalalithaa had run the administration from Ooty," said Jagan.

Adding Jagan also took out Chandrababu's tenure. "During Hudhud cyclone, Chandrababu had done administration from Vizag for nearly 10 days. To run the government from a place of CM's choice would fall under Rule 174 of the Indian constitution. TDP and Chandrbabu are doing politics on decentralizing the capital," said Jagan.
