The YSRCP chief made these remarks at Puthalapattu in Chittoor district while addressing a public meeting as part of his ‘Memanta Siddham’ (we are all ready) election canvassing bus tour.

“Seeing elderly people suffer today since they can't walk to collect their pensions, I can't help but wonder if Chandrababu Naidu possesses any humanity or if he is a sadist since he stalled volunteers from disbursing pension by approaching the Election Commission,” Reddy said.

The chief minister went on to label Naidu a "habitual liar".
