Former Minister, Chandrababu Naidu has hit back at the Ruling Party which is criticizing him over his defeat in the Mangalagiri seat. "I did not choose my father's seat (Pulivendula) and go for an easy seat. I am not someone who will sell fruits in the name of the tree," he said.

"I have chosen the toughest seat to contest. Telugu Desam Party did not win from Mangalagiri since 1984. I chose such a seat and worked to hoist the TDP flag there but unfortunately lost. I did not run away from Mangalagiri even after the loss," Lokesh observed.

"YSR Congress Leaders are calling me Pappu. If I am Pappu, you are Ganneru Pappu. My parents raised me very well and I can not speak in Crass language like them. I studied in America, so I may have difficulties in Telugu, but those mistakes did not shoo away investors, did not stop Polavaram," he added.

He made these comments in a recent press meet. Post the Press Meet, he traveled in an RTC bus to know the public opinion on the hike of the RTC Ticker prices.
