rejoin the party. It would be a home-coming for them, he said.

he appealed to them to rejoin the party.

land in jail some day or the other. Some youth joined him initially

observed. "I am not saying this out of political animosity, but I can
say whoever indulges in corrupt practices, it is sure they will land
in jail," he said.
He termed Ghulam Nabi Azad as 'super CM' and Chief Minister Kiran
Kumar Reddy and PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana were following his
directives like students. Botcha, who owns 31 liquor outlets, had

thick-skinned." It surrendered the interests of Andhra Pradesh before
the Central government, he alleged. Naidu received a warm welcome at
Narasimhapuram on the outskirts of the town. The Telugu Desam Party
activists could show their strength with an impressive car and auto
