‘People in Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh voted in favour of good governance’

Telugu Desam president N. Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday said the results of the “mini-general elections” showed that anti-Congress winds were blowing across the country and people wanted corruption-free governance.

Replying to a question at a press conference, he said the impact of BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was there and people saw him as an alternative to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

He said corruption reached its zenith under the UPA-II government, while Dr. Singh remained a “helpless spectator.” People in Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh voted in favour of “good governance.” The Congress got sympathy in Chhattisgarh because of naxal attack on its leaders.

The results showed that all corrupt people and parties would be defeated. AICC president Sonia Gandhi and its vice-president Rahul Gandhi would meet the same fate as Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in the next elections, he said.

Mr. Naidu was evasive when asked if he would support the BJP-led NDA or the third front in the next elections. The TDP would do whatever was needed for the development of the country. There was a need to provide stable and good governance that would eliminate corruption. “These results should be an eye-opener,” he added.

Recalling that the TDP had always played a major part in forming an alternative to the Congress at the national level, he said the party would again play a key role in the next elections.
