Yet another incident of misuse of public money by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has come to light. After diverting crores of rupees invested by small shareholders in his Heritage company before the demonetization scheme to his own accounts, Chandrababu launched 'Inti Intiki' TDP programme with state owned money in Andhra.
The 'clever' decision taken by the CM to organise the distribution of house pattas, DWACRA loans and allotment of houses to poor during the Inti Intiki TDP programme helped the TDP to incur all the expenditure from the state exchequer only.
TDP leaders have been asked to mobilise people to the TDP meetings under government organsied programmes to avoid spending money by the Telugu Desam. Opposition party leaders said that the CM was exploiting power and also public money to strengthen the party only in the state.
On the other hand, the TDP was getting lukewarm response in the campaign to strengthen the party at grassroots level and the YSR Congress is ahead of the TDP in popularity across the state.
