Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Friday termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Parliament address on Thursday as "appalling" and alleged that he was rubbing salt into the wounds of his state instead of doing justice to it by fulfilling his commitments.
The Chief Minister, who is trying to cobble together an anti-BJP front, took strong exception to Modi calling the opposition alliance 'maha milavat' (highly adulterated).
Claiming that leaders of many national parties would be joining him in protest, Naidu also invited the state opposition parties to participate in it. "It is for them to decide whether to stand with the people or continue playing politics," he said.
