Claiming that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is eyeing properties in Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu promised people that he will develop his state more than Telangana.

Addressing road shows in Venkatagiri and Satyavedu in Nellore district on Monday, he said, "There is an understanding (by KCR) with Jagan to take over sea ports in AP by the land locked Telangana," Naidu said.

He said that the KCR is hatching a conspiracy to rule Andhra Pradesh making the YSR Congress its puppet, adding that party chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is playing to the Telangana CM's tunes.

The TRS government owes Rs 1 lakh crore to Andhra Pradesh on different account, Naidu said.

Claiming that the TDP government is implementing more schemes than the governments in Telangana and Tamil Nadu, he promised to up minimum pension from Rs 2,000 to Rs 3,000.

Naidu assured to bring Godavari water to Venkatagiri. Promising to protect the interests of weavers, he said Tirupati, Nellore and Venkatagiri will be developed as a tri-city industrial hub.

The chief minister alleged that if Jagan comes to power, no industrialist will come forward to invest in Andhra Pradesh. He said a number of cases under a variety of sections are pending against Jagan.

He appealed to the people to extend support to the TDP for a stable government.

The TDP manifesto committee was directed by the chief minister to increase the retirement age of government employees to 62, while pension benefits will continue at 55 years.

He declared that after coming to power, the Rs 10,000 'Pasupu Kumkuma' scheme for Dwacra women and 12 hours of free power for the farming sector will be continued.
