[Watch] Sobbing Chandrababu Naidu Vows To Stay Away From Assembly
Amravati: In an unusual sight, a sobbing N Chandrababu Naidu vowed to step into the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly again only after returning to power.
“Till then, we will go to the people and sort it out,” he told a press conference at the TDP headquarters here.
The former Andhra Pradesh chief minister caught everyone by surprise as he broke down during a press conference on Friday. He cried inconsolably for a while, alleging that the ruling YSR Congress had been humiliating him.
“This is a dharma poratam (just battle) against the atrocious rule of the YSRC. I will go to the people and seek their support. If people cooperate, I will strive to save the state,” the Telugu Desam president said.

An emotional Chandrababu, the leader of Opposition, said in the state Legislative Assembly earlier in the day that Jagan Mohan Reddy-led party YSRC had been insulting him continuously for the past two-and-a-half years.
“I have been bearing the insults for the sake of people, but remained calm. Today, they have targeted even my wife. I always lived with honour and for honour. I can take it no more,” Chandrababu said.
CM Jagan Mohan and other ruling party members described Chandrababu’s behaviour and comments a “drama”.
