Atchannaidu is big boss of sand mafia

Srikakulam:Leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Assembly and YSR Congress party (YSRCP) chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy addressed a massive gathering in Tekkali constituency of Srikakulam district.
He launched a scathing at Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu by recalling the latter's days of deception when he deception when he backstabbed his father-in-law, late CM NTR, soon after the TDP founder was elected to the Assembly from Tekkali in 1994.
YS Jagan said the local minister Atchannaidu was a complete failure in addressing public issues in the last four years. "The TDP minister, it is said, is the big boss of the sand mafia in Amudala Valasa, Narasapuram and other places in the region. All government contracts are awarded only to the minister's brother Hari Prasad," he said parroting the locals' woes.
All the rivers in the region have been exploited in the name of Neeru-Chettu program while the TDP leaders demand commissions for building toilets, providing pensions and Anganwadi jobs.
The Leader of Opposition said 1,500 people in this constituency had to approach the Courts to get their pensions after the TDP leaders deliberately removed their names. The locals said Atchannaidu encroached government lands to build godowns.
Any one who wants to get a new granite quarrying license and NOC should pay Rs 25 lakhs to the associates of Atchannaidu. A land belonging to the RTC in Tekkali has been registered in the name of Atchanaidu's relative.
In Chandrababu Naidu's rule, the electricity charges for polishing units have been increased by Rs 8 per unit. Employees of Metkore Ferro Alloys were staging a protest against the management demanding payment of salary dues, while I was passing by, he said.
Speaking about the protests against Kakarapalli power plant, YS Jagan recalled that in 2014 Chandrababu Naidu promised to cancel permissions for the plant. Fishermen were losing their livelihood while 51 villages were living in danger. In Bhavanapadu Port project, the farmers' lands were acquired for cheap prices only to benefit the rich and powerful.
