Abdullah levelled this allegation while campaigning for the Telugu Desam Party, along with its president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, at Kadapa, hometown of the YSR Congress chief, in Andhra Pradesh.

Jagan Mohan Reddy, according to the National Conference leader, made the offer soon after the death of his father (former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy). "Jagan once came to my house when AP was united. I want to remind him that he told me he was ready to give Rs 1,500 crore if the Congress made him the Chief Minister," Abdullah claimed.

"Where did the money come from? Does he have a treasure hidden inside the earth," the former Chief Minister wondered, adding the money "must have been looted." "If he comes to you now and says he will take care of your future, beware. Such a person will only try to take care of his own future, not yours. He will destroy your future," Abdullah warned and asked people to vote the TDP to power. YSR Congress leaders were not immediately available for comment.
