Politics is more like making a career because it gives you power and loads of money with no one to ask for. Because, you can become the government and you have the power to loot the people in the name of taxes and what not. So, it is natural to see politicians getting desperate about sitting in chairs of power and those who don’t have it feel like fish out of water. But I feel there is a line to be drawn somewhere for this greed.
This desperation towards power is making me desperately annoyed towards one man, the TDP head Chandrababu Naidu. I have been watching his speeches during his Padayatra and with each speech his frustration is displayed in a big way. When he said that congress party should be killed with ‘Kathhulu’ and ‘Kodavallu’ I fell off my chair. And before I could recover from that shock, he has come up with something else.
Chandrababu says his party members and workers should sell their assets and properties to save the party. Now, why will workers sell their homes? What was he thinking when he said this? For a party to succeed is it money or giving confidence to the people? It is high time Chandrababu should focus on how to develop faith among people, what is the logic in telling them to sell homes. What will happen to them if TDP loses elections? Will he go and give them his home?
It is one thing to seek power through a proper agenda and attacking the ruling party on their weaknesses but bringing in this kind of pressure on the poor voters is something unheard of and absolutely insane. And Chandrababu who has the credit of being called as hi-tech CM and a man who made a significant difference to our state is bringing shame upon himself by talking like this.
