YSR and party distorted the statement, he claims Kadiyam (East Godavari): Telugu Desam Party supremo N Chandrababu Naidu surprised everyone, including senior leaders like Devender Goud and Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, with his emotional speech while addressing the party cadre at a review meeting of two Assembly constituencies before beginning his 'Vastunna Meekosam' padayatra in East Godavari district on the fourth day on Saturday. Babu was asked by a party worker as to what had he done for them during his nine years stint when compared to the activities taken up for the workers by late chief minister Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy. He was also told that the party cadre were unable to clarify Babu's remarks that 'agriculture is a waste' to the farmers. In his lengthy reply, Chandrababu said, "Yes. I have committed some mistakes and I am ready to correct them. A few sycophants gave me wrong advice and continued to praise me even when I did something wrong. I realised this mistake when I started meeting common party workers through review meetings and the pada yatra." However, he said, he had never spoken against the farmers in the State or in the country. "I never said that agriculture would never be viable. YS Rajasekhara Reddy and his party distorted my statement and indulged in 'Goebbels campaign'," he said. On the worker's comment on his not favouring party workers, Chandrababu said that he neither indulged in corruption nor allowed any of his party workers to indulge in the same. This has paid off in society in the name of honesty and dignity. "We are keeping our heads high whereas the loyalists of YSR are going to jails," he said. Those who were leaving the party would repent and return before the elections.
