CM goes nostalgic

By Our Special Correspondent

TIRUPATI. Feb. 12. The Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, during his 150-minute visit to his home town Chittoor today struck a personal chord on more than one occasion during his hour-long election speech.

His political rhetoric apart, he sought to strike a personal chord with the crowd slipping into nostalgic and reminiscent mood quite often.

Saying that neither Chittoor nor its populace were new to him having been born and brought up in the district, Naidu said that he would never do any thing which would bring disrepute to his people.

Mr. Naidu said that he has no vices nor feeling of nepotism towards anyone. "I am only a workaholic," he said and added that except when he is asleep, rest of the time he thought of the State's development. "I am lucky, for I got the Chief Ministership at a very young age when I am hale and healthy enough to move about freely. Normally we have seen the Chief Minister's post favouring the leaders only when the leaders are old. But I am lucky in that respect," he said and vowed that despite the gravest of the threats to his life, he would not let down the people who have reposed confidence in him.
