YSR was my friend and we both shared same room: Chandrababu
On Friday, Former Chief Minister of AP, Nara Chandra Babu Naidu had made some interesting comments in the assembly. The topic being discussed was regarding the removal of statues. Discussing over this issue, YSRCP MLA, Ambati Ram Babu fired over Chandra Babu Naidu.
Ambati said, "The late YS Rajasekhar Reddy's statues were deliberately removed by Chandrababu's previous government. Don't know why Chandrababu is always jealous of YSR and so the ex-CM removed YSR's statue in Vijayawada.” Reacting over these allegations, Chandra Babu Naidu said, "Many MLAs in the assembly may not know that I and YSR are very good friends. Though we are politically divided, we shared a good equation."
He added, “From 1975 to 1983 we traveled together in politics. YSR was my best friend then and we even shared same room. Jagan has no clue about our friendship and why would I order for removal of YSR statues. Probably the ruling party has nothing to criticise me, so they want to corner me with such stupid allegations.”
Suddenly these comments by Naidu became viral. Also the MLAs in the assembly were hearing to his words carefully. Naidu even told that YSR was his good friend and they both discussed on various issues related to public welfare.
