Telugu Desam President N Chandrababu Naidu today commended the "good" work that had happened done during NDA rule but declined to commit if his party would return to BJP-led NDA fold even as he attacked Congress and UPA.
"There is a national crisis now. We have to first save the country by wiping out Congress as it is the main culprit that pushed the country into crisis," Chandrababu told reporters here this afternoon.
He claimed the UPA government, since its first term, "reaped the fruits of all the good" that had happened during NDA rule between 1999 and 2004.
"The UPA-2 is steeped in corruption and scandals because of which the systems collapsed and (it) pushed the country into the crisis. UPA-2 has become a curse for the country," the former Chief Minister alleged.
Asked whether TDP would realign with NDA, with BJP naming Narendra Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate, the TDP supremo said it was not the time to talk about politics or Modi.
During his public meeting in Hyderabad last month, the Gujarat Chief Minister had made an overture towards TDP, saying the party which inherited the legacy of the legendary NTR should join forces to dislodge Congress from power.
Chandrababu today charged "India is facing a peculiar situation. Congress is the villain that is responsible for the crisis. It's the main culprit. We have to see that Congress is totally wiped out."
