My point is AP got screwed thoroughly by Modi has no basis and was mostly done by TDP /spread by CON/Left supporters. We have enough data to counter that. In the end, I want people to realize not to be too reliant on lies of politicians but look at data. You might still vote for TDP due to your preference/prejudice but at least don't spread lies.
My take on the CBN vs Jagan contest:
CBN has proved to be one of the most anti-national politicians in the country right now (and that's a tall order given who is currently the opposition).. his interviews with NDTV, where he is on record saying nobody died in Balakot and everything claimed by IAF & Modi was rubbish and his public meetings, where he is calling Modi as a "terrorist" or his Pulwama conspiracy theory that Modi killed Indian soldiers to justify a war with Pakistan, because "the blood thirsty Modi has in the past killed thousands of minorities in Gujarat", can never be excused. Their cadre had posted rabid pro-Pakistan and anti-Indian messages in social media, outright shamelessly. Amit Shah is right in saying, that even if he begs, CBN won't be allowed back to NDA. This guy is the worst politician in the country right now, I dare say even worse than Jihadi Didi - who at least was an open enemy all along. This guys is the proverbial snake that bit the hands that fed it. All because Modi govt started asking him for greater accountability on the funds it gave him.
I dont know if you are from AP, but his reign has been far worse than YSR's reign in terms of conversions and in general anti-Hindu practices. There are now Christmas celebrations in temple premises in Srisailam, one of the 7 jyotirlingas, by CBN appointed crypto-Christian administrative officers which is a matter of shame for Hindus, TTD jewelry being stolen is not yet closed. There are accusations of money being pilfered from TTD devasthanam as well. Money & offerings are being looted out of other big temples (Kanaka Durga Temple in Vijayawada) as well. Outright injustices & skewed secularism - where TTD exchequer was billed crores of money for requesting land in the new capital city for a hindu temple, but twice or thrice the amount of land was given out FREE OF COST to build mosques & churches. There are documented evidence of demolishing over 30 temples around Vijayawada area with no provision to respectfully relocate them to other regions, while going overboard in providing land & inaugurating new minority structures effected by land acquisition for capital city.
Jagan, a 4th gen christian, has been more subdued in his attack on Modi and has only confined criticism to special status, and more importantly hasn't made open anti-national statements like his opponent. Jagan is aware that he lost the previous term due to fear of his Christian background in Hindu majority, in fact some Hindus are still wary of this. But he is going overboard to prove he is not anti-Hindu: apparently he went through a 2 month daily Mahabharata parayanam routine to prove to Hindu seers that he is not anti-Hindu and get blessings from China Jeer Swamy... is apparently getting his nomination done as per Hindu calendar.. he has apparently promised to follow Hindu calendars and rule as advised on Hindu practice matters based on the Vaishnava seer's advice, if voted to power. Frankly, after the backlash he received on his Tirumala GOs, even YSR took better care of TTD & its sanctity than CBN has done in the past few yrs - all the TTD Dalit outreach programs that actually fought back against conversions among Dalits, were started during his reign after all.
Of course, it may all be a sham, who knows, but at least he isn't making anti-national statements or has done anti-Hindu activities like CBN... Hope we see Babu get his comeuppance for his perpetual backstabbing nature this time around.
