How low can former Chief Minister and TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu can get? It appears as a sense of balance is missing in his comments these days. He is making comments that are not just silly but are downright absurd.
a recent review meeting of party workers, he used a strange logic to explain why AP CM and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy were not invited to dinner hosted in honor of US President Donald Trump. His strange logic is that Jagan was not invited because he has criminal cases pending against him. What about Yeddyurappa then? He, too, has been facing similar cases. But, he got invited.
The CM's of UP, Gujarat, West Bengal and Kerala too were not invited. Going by Chandrababu Naidu's strange logic, all these have also not invited to dinner because they were corrupt and have cases against them? Also, why Arvind Kejriwal, who is well known for his anti-corruption crusade, not invited? These days, Chandrababu is accusing everyone as he does in the case of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Is he too a corrupt politician according to Chandrababu? Sources say that Chandrababu's sense of balance is missing in comments these days and made these anti words against Arvind Kejriwal.
It is clear that the states which have deep business links with the US like Haryana, Telangana, Karnataka (the IT capital of India) and others got invited. AP is a fledgling state and needs time to grow economically. Also, it may not really have anything substantial to offer immediately to the Indo-US relations.
