Babu’s health improves, Yerrannaidu says govt patting itself premature
Hyderabad, Dec 24 : Doctors at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Science on Friday stated that health of Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu has taken a turn for the better, after he was forcefully administered intravenous liquids from Thursday night.
The government had ordered that Mr Naidu should be forcefully administered fluids after doctors had expressed fears that he may slip into coma ‘within hours’ because of his indefinite hunger strike to press the government to revise it compensation package for rain-hit farmers.
Meanwhile, senior TDP leader K Yerrannaidu vowed that the party will not allow the government to escape from its responsibilities towards the farmers by forcing an end to Mr Naidu’s fast.
He stated that the government may be under the false assumption that the TDP has been vanquished by the utilisation of sheer force.
Mr Yerrannaidu vowed that the party would continue its fight to get justice for the hapless farmers in the state and added that the government may have been patting itself on the back prematurely.
The senior TDP leader told media persons that, though the government claimed its relief package was ‘excellent’, the number of suicides by farmers proved that it was grossly inadequate.
Mr Yerrannaidu further added that the Chief Minister had neither sympathy, nor understanding of the farmers and the problems they faced.
