Minister lashes at Chandrababu Naidu

Amaravati: Minister for Civil Supplies Kodali Venkateswararao (Nani)  has lashed out at opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu for maliciously propagating on the State government’s debts and siding with MLC Ashok Babu, who forged his certificates.
Addressing a press conference here on Friday, the Minister said that the State debt was only about 99,000 crore until 2014, but with Chandrababu’s rule in just five years it went to Rs 3.7 lakh crore. He said that the debt could have increased to 14.8 lakh crore if the current government went on a borrowing spree like Chandrababu, but it was only around six lakh crore. He stated that Chandrababu had only done graphics and abandoned the State, while Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had delivered welfare schemes in a transparent manner through DBT without any corruption and stood by the public in times of Covid crisis.
Naidu has been making baseless allegations against the government deliberately to defame the State, said the minister adding that the funds were spent on building infrastructure like constructing new medical colleges, revamping schools, colleges, hospitals, and many more. 
Further, he flayed Chandrababu Naidu for instigating his party leaders to create chaos on the formation of new districts. He said that Chandrababu should be ashamed when his own party people are opposing the NTR name for the Vijayawada district.
Responding over the arrest of TDP MLC Ashok Babu, Minister Nani said that everyone is equal before the law, and clarified that the YSRCP leaders did not lodge a complaint against him, his colleague had complained over his fake certificate and sought investigation. The CID has registered the case and law will take its own course. In this regard he slammed Chandrababu for supporting Ashok Babu who used fake degree certificates and got promoted.
Meanwhile at a separate press conference YSRCP spokesperson Yanamala Nagarjuna Yadav also slammed Ashok babu for using fake certificates and snatching others opportunity for getting promoted. He said that CID arrested him as per the instructions from Lokayuktha, and flayed TDP leaders for supporting irregularities of Ashok babu.
