The lukewarm response from youth to corruption irked Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N. Chandrababu Naidu during his ‘Vastunna Meekosam’ padayata in Krishna district.
To his dismay, the students did not respond by raising their hands when he asked them about corruption. Instead, they sought to know about Telangana and their job prospects in the event of bifurcation of the State.
“You seem to be complacent to the rampant corruption around you. The youth need to come out and fight corruption,” he said at every interaction with the college and school students in the district. Mr. Naidu said: “Many of you must have been one or two year old when I became Chief Minister. At the age of 63-years, I am fighting for your sake. Complacence will take you nowhere.” All of you are flashing gizmos to capture me in your mobiles. The bandwidth and cell phones became a reality only due to untiring efforts of the TDP. Make best use of technology. Use twitter, facebook and SMSes to fight corruption. Many spend their energies on chatting and tweet everything under the sky except corruption, he said.
