Crowning Irony: Chandrababu Preaches About Democracy 

Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu - Sakshi Post

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Nara Chandrababu Naidu has, in what can only be described as crowning irony, hailed the victory of democracy in Karnataka in a tweet. His Twitter post referring to the defeat of the BJP, following its failure to muster enough numbers comes as a bit funny seen against his own actions.

Who can forget the desperate appeals made by NTR atop a van outside hotel Viceroy to the MLAs holed up inside back then?
