*   Slams Trump for his comments on women.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's statements have exposed the leadership crisis in the US. Naidu, who is planning to visit the US next month, criticised Trump over his comments on women. If you listen to what Trump says, you will understand the hollowness. Even a top-ranking nation like America is having a leadership crisis, Naidu said during a press conference after moving into his new office chamber at AP government's transitional headquarters in Velagapudi.

Naidu is planning to undertake a nine-day visit to the US next month to meet non-resident Telugus and seek their contribution for the ‘smart village’ programme in the state. He is also expected to meet some US senators and state Governors during his visit.

"Trump spoke badly about women... It sparked worldwide reactions. Women are inferior to none," he said. Naidu is planning to undertake a nine-day visit to the US next month to meet non-resident Telugus and seek their contribution for the 'smart village' programme in the state. He is also expected to meet some US senators and state Governors during his visit.

Naidu reiterated his demand for immediately abolishing currency notes of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 denominations to curb black money in the country. "I'm writing a letter to the Prime Minister today asking that Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes be abolished and total bank transactions be encouraged," he said at a press conference in his new office at Velagapudi.
