Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party chief N. Chandrababu Naidu has claimed that his party had played key role in the development of Hyderabad.

Addressing during the Mahanadu, former Andhra Pradesh chief minister said after the bifurcation of the state, he worked hard for the development and progress of Andhra Pradesh state so that it also gets recognised on the world stage.
Chandrababu Naidu said whenever his party was in power, he dedicated himself 24 hours in the service of the public. He blamed the Jagan Mohan Reddy-led government in Andhra Pradesh for harassing and falsely implicating cases against the members of the Telegu Desam Party.

He said that the YSRCP government had spent 1000 crores on the irrigation projects in the last two years but the state has not benefitted from it.
