Chandrababu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh criticised the Narendra Modi-led government for a continuous rise in diesel and petrol prices and said that petrol would be sold at Rs 100 per litre. He said that in addition to petrol prices, the rupee value would also touch Rs 100 against one US dollar.

After the recent Reserve Bank of India’s report on demonetisation, Chandrababu Naidu said the Centre was unable to “properly manage demonetisation.

He said that “Prime Minister Modi is not disciplined, it is inability. Even today, cash shortage is prevailing in ATMs. Nation’s growth rate came down after NDA came into power. If the Centre is disciplined, why is corruption taking place? Why are banks getting insolvent? Modi is not eligible to speak about sincerity, truthfulness, and discipline.”

Chandrababu Naidu also said that the recent growth in India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was a result of the “basic strength” of people, and “not due to NDA’s achievements.”
