Baseless Quid pro quo allegations; Babu forgot his past promise

In Andhra Pradesh, Telugu Desam Party’s malicious political interest spoiling the investment environment with its unrealistic accusations.  With the success of the first phase of the Polavaram reverse tendering process, the TDP leaders are now trying to defend the interests of their close associates and started criticising every action of the ruling party.  With a stunning success of Polavaram revers tendering, TDP leaders started accusing without a reality check and far from the truth. They came out once again with Quid pro quo allegation card.  The allegations now go behind the Polavaram Project to electric bus purchases. In fact, no purchase process began in this regard. 

In reality, it is completely different. The TDP leaders forgot that exactly a year back Mr Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated the same Olectra Greentech bus in Amaravati capital region and in Tirumala ghat roads. He and his ministers travelled in the bus along with the company officials and promised that with introducing Electric busses in the capital regions he will turn the city environmental friendly and pollution-free. Chandrababu forgot his promise and actions in the past. Now the same yellow batch alleging the opposition with quid pro quo benefits. 


The Olectra Greentech buses are already operating in many states. First, it is demonstrated in Amravati only. It held the trial run for Tirumala Hill. The Olectra buses travelled to the highest point from Manali in Himachal Pradesh to Rohtang Pass and entered the Limca Book of Records. Besides this, it is operating for Ayyapa swami yatra in Kerala. Olectra Greentech electric buses are already running successfully in Delhi, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Telangana states. Last week, in Mumbai, BEST introduced nearly ten Olectra buses in city routes. In Pune, city services are running with higher capacity utilization.  Olectra is operating 40 electric buses running from different parts of Hyderabad to the airport. Another interesting thing here is that Ashok Leyland has also recently launched the electric buses, but they are not able to reach higher altitudes. At present, Olectra buses are running successfully in many states in the country. Apart from these, all the states of the country, including Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, are calling for tenders for electric buses to utilize the concessions that the centre is giving. As a part of FAME 2, Andhra Pradesh can also soon call for tenders for electric buses. These tenders will be  awarded after careful consideration of standards, production capacity and technical aspects. By ignoring these facts, the TDP leaders accusing QuidProQuo by YS Jagan with vested interests.
