AP CM Chandrababu, who always brags about his plans to develop the state as a cashless and digital economy, has neglected his own village Naravaripalle. The village lacks bank. It neither has a single ATM. A dozen villages around Naravaripalle also are suffering the same fate.
People of the villages are suffering due to demonetisation too. They are having to travel all the way to Chandragiri or Tirupati to collect cash from ATMs. Swiping machines are not functioning either.
There is only one ration shop that sells subsidy rice grains and daily commodities through electronic system. The ATM that is at Rangampeta, 2 km away from Naravaripalle, is not functioning properly with connectivity issues.
On one hand, at Tirupati, the 104th conference of Indian Science Congress is happening prestigiously. Experts are addressing about ways to develop the country technologically and scientifically. On the other hand, the CM's native village, Naravaripalle, that is very close to the city, is staying far from technology.
People all over the state are exclaiming how Chandrababu does nothing but blabber in the assembly at will.
