Hyderabad: YSR Congress Party senior leader and MLA RK Roja fired a salvo at Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on the government' s decision to promote Corporate companies in the Public Distribution System in Andhra Pradesh.
Addressing the media in Hyderabad, she said the fair price shops supplying all essential commodities to the poor have become dysfunctional by confining them to supply only Rice in the TDP regime. The very purpose of the establishment of fair price shops was defeated in Chandrababu government.
Roja said Chandrababu wanted to establish Chandranna Village Malls in the place of fair shops. The corporate companies- Future group and Reliance have been given permission to set up the malls in villages and grab retail market.
The YSR Congress MLA also asked Chandrababu to make public the details of supply of essential commodities at cheaper prices to the poor. She wondered how the profiting making companies sell goods at cheaper rates.
