Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu has been doing everything possible to show that he is quite close to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In Goa for a meeting of chief whips, he immediately flew into Vizag when he heard of Modi’s trip. Prior to that, Venkaiah did not bother to come to console those who lost everything due to cyclone. Also, he got on to the special craft along with Modi and went off to Delhi with him.
Once in Delhi, he leaked the story to his friendly publications and got coverage saying that he accompanied Modi. He also said that Modi was impressed by the resilience of people in Uttarandhra. Venkaiah added that he applauded the leadership qualities in Modi. Well, Venkaiah surely knows how to turn a situation in his favour.
