In India, at least 23 regional political parties have devised an economic plan focusing on poverty eradication, agriculture, employment and a “minimum income for every family, in order to win the upcoming general election due in May this year against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu said in an interview.
As Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Naidu has been credited with implementing business-friendly policies that attracted firms like Microsoft to the southern state.
“So many political parties are working (on a) consensus. The farmers’ crisis is the biggest issue, unemployment is the biggest issue,” Mr Naidu said. “The economy (is where) you have to concentrate”. “A prime minister will be decided afterwards with consensus,” Mr Naidu said, ruling out selecting a figurehead before the polls. “First of all we have to win the elections.” “I’m telling you anybody is better than Narendra Modi because he won’t listen to anybody,” Mr Naidu said. “He doesn’t have any comprehensive position.”
