Chandrababu in damage control mode

KCR incompetent, blaming me for his failure: Chandrababu

Naidu wants to be seen in league with Modi

Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is in a damage control mode over his reported remarks on demonetization. He said today that his comments were “distorted” in the media.

Naidu had said on Tuesday that he was ‘breaking my head’ over the issues arising out of the notes ban even 40 days of the decision, and that there appeared to be no solution to the vexatious problem.

“The people who are supposed to manage the crisis are incapable of doing anything. The RBI has not been able to do anything about it. It still remains a sensitive and complicated problem,’’ he had said.

Naidu heads the panel set up by the Centre to look into issues arising from demonetisation. His party–TDP–is part of the NDA government. The 13-member committee would meet again on December 28 to work out solutions to the ongoing problem.

BJP too played down the criticism by Naidu saying the Chief Minister has not said anything different from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders about difficulties being faced by people.

“What he is saying is nothing different from what Modi said that there should be least difficulty to the common man. He indicated to the government for expediting money circulation,” party’s national secretary and Andhra in-charge Sidharth Nath Singh told reporters in Delhi.
