Chandrababu solely responsible for poor condition of AP

Minister Kurasala Kannababu

“It is really pathetic to see Andhra Pradesh in drought conditions even after 72 years of Independence in our country,” said Minister for Agriculture Kurasala Kannababu during Assembly proceedings on Monday. He further said that Chandrababu Naidu is solely responsible for the poor condition of the State economy and the plight of Amaravati farmers.


“Even after pooling 33,000 acres from the farmers for the development of the capital city, Naidu only showed colorful graphics and finally cheated the farmers. In all his five year tenure, he never bothered to do justice for the farmers of Amaravati. Backward regions are emerging only due to the inequality in development taking place across the State. That is why, even today, Rayalaseema and North Andhra regions have been in an extremely backward category. In order to develop those regions, Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy proposed decentralisation. All the expert committees have suggested going with decentralisation.” he added.


“Today, we are paying Rs 750 Crores alone every year for rents to run government offices. In all these five years, Rs 3,750 Crores were used for paying rents,” said MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, during a discussion on Decentralisation Bill in AP Assembly on Monday. He further said that Chandrababu Naidu fearing for Cash for Vote case has come from Hyderabad losing the joint capital status and benefits which were given for 10 long years. Only because of his foolish decisions, today the State government is spending over Rs 750 Crore towards rent.


He further stated that the government will also take the responsibility to study the CRDA Act and the lottery process of allocation of lands to the farmers. “The TDP government brought this lottery procedure and cheated the farmers in the name of transparency. But with insider trading, all the good lands have been allocated to their people and farmers were provided with uneven lands. Pooling 33,000 acres for capital is meaningless and was also opposed by many. Our government increased the benefits for the farmers of the Amaravati region and we would consider returning the lands of those farmers whose lands were remained untouched and if they want to take back their lands.” he added.
