Rebutting allegations of corruption made by Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu against the Congress party, Government Whip S Sailajanath on Thursday countered by alleging that graft has reached its peak during the TDP rule in the state.

Talking to media persons at the CLP, Mr Sailajanath pointed out that Mr Naidu had stated that 50 per cent of corruption cases were from the state. These 50 per cent corruption cases had taken place during Mr Naidu’s rule, the Government Whip alleged.

“There is no doubt that the NTR Trust Bhavan is the address for corruption,” he said.

The Government Whip also pointed that that Mr Naidu had considered funding agriculture was a waste of time and resources. His views have left him with no moral right to talk on welfare of farmers and their rights, Mr Saialajanath stated.

The Government Whip further charged that the TDP chief was stooping to the level of making baseless allegations against the Congress party since he was losing his political base.

Mr Sailajanath further asked Mr Naidu to back his charges of corruption against the Congress party with substantial evidence and warned the TDP of serious consequences if he did not stop the malicious campaign.
