You will be finished: Chandrababu Naidu tells BJP workers
Amaravati, Jan 5 (IBNS): Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was caught on camera threatening Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers when they attempted to block his convoy on his way to attend 'Janmabhoomi maa vooru' event in Kakinada area of the state on Friday.
Naidu was in the Godavari district of the state to attend the event when some BJP workers were seen raising slogan against him.
According to reports, Naidu stepped out from his vehicle and was quoted as saying to the workers who were attempting to block his convoy: "You will get beaten up. Don't invite unnecessary trouble. You will be finished. Do you support the injustice meted out to AP?."
"If you go on the streets, people will teach you a lesson," he said.
Naidu has criticised PM Narendra Modi and his government in recent times for not granting special status to Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu's TDP and the BJP had worked the Lok Sabha polls in 2014, which witnessed a landmark victory of Narendra Modi, together.
Last year, Naidu's party moved out from the Centre by breaking the alliance on the ground that the government did not fulfil their demand to grant special status to Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu met opposition leaders:
After breaking the alliance, Naidu met several key opposition leaders, including West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and Congress president Rahul Gandhi, last year.
The move was seen as one of his attempts to construct a united Opposition to tackle the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2019 General Elections.
