Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday said the BJP has hatched a grand conspiracy against him and his government with the help of Y S Jaganmohan Reddy and Pawan Kalyan.

Naidu, who was bombarded incessantly by the Opposition after he snapped ties with the NDA, says that the so-called "Operation Garuda" launched by the BJP against him, is no more a secret.

Naidu, who participated in the 'Nava Nirmana Deeksha', a rededication programme to rebuild Andhra Pradesh, at Benz circle in Vijayawada on the state formation day, said the revelations made by Telugu actor-turned-activist Sivaji that the BJP has roped in Jagan and Pawan Kalyan in their game plan specifically designed for Andhra Pradesh, are turning out to be true.

"Otherwise why would anyone attack me for fighting against the Centre for demanding special status? Neither Jagan nor Pawan says a single word against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is supposed to grant the status," Naidu said.

He then said Andhra Pradesh will prove to be a turf that is indifferent to the BJP's brand of conspiracy politics.

"Narendra Modi had assured us that he will give us a better capital than Delhi in Tirupati, the abode of Balaji. But he cheated us after becoming prime minister — he loves Dholera more than Amaravati now," Naidu said.

He further said the BJP did not hesitate to drag Lord Venkateswara into its political game plan by encouraging Ramana Deekshitulu.

"You can play with anyone in this world, but not with Lord Venkateswara. The Lord saved me from the claymore mine blast planned by Naxals on the foothills of Tirumala," an emotional Naidu said.

He said the BJP tried to intimidate him through false allegations on Tirumala, irrigation projects and Amaravati.

Meanwhile, Naidu’s counterpart in the sibling state of Telangana, K Chandrasekhar Rao, participated in the formation day fete at the Parade Grounds here.

He said Telangana has taken solid steps towards making it a golden state.

He said irrigation projects have been undertaken to provide water to at least one crore acres in the dry land state. The chief minister said that from August 15 all the farmers in the state will be insured for Rs 5 lakh by the state government.
