TDP allegations baseless: YSRCP

Dec 24: YSR Congress has said that the proceedings of the winter session of the
Andhra Pradesh Assembly were not held in the true democratic spirit but had
witnessed the treasury benches hoodwinking all norms and using the valuable
time to level baseless allegations and try to hijack the YSR schemes. 

to reporters here on Wednesday YSRCLP Deputy Floor Leader Jyothula Nehru said:
“we condemn the baseless allegations leveled by the treasury benches and the

allegations leveled by Chief Minister that YSR Congress is not interested in
the capital formation at the specified place and the Party is against the

that the capital should be centrally located and it should benefit all sections

its seal on a new format. The State suddenly bringing up the Pattiseema lift

water from Godavari to Krishna basin though Polavaram right bank.

unproductive measure will strengthen the argument of the neighbouring states on
the Polavaram dispute and goes against the State interest; he said adding that
the amount should instead be used to build a balancing reservoir to benefit
Rayalaseema. The TDP Government should mount pressure on the Centre and
complete Polavaram project instead of going for such unproductive schemes, he
