Chandrababu’s drama to divert CM’s tour


 Amaravati : Chief Whip Gadikota Srikanth Reddy countered the remarks made by opposition leader Chandrababu and stated that the latter has been indulging in diversion politics as the Chief Minister’s Delhi tour was successful.
Speaking to the media here on Tuesday, the MLA said that Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy's visit to Delhi was part of the development agenda, where he discussed various key issues related to the state with several Union Ministers, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As the tour has become successful, with jealousy the opposition leader is back on the spree to divert people with his political dramas and baseless allegations to defame the State, he said.
He stated that Chandrababu Naidu did nothing for the State during his five year rule and indeed  wasted hundreds of crores to create hype for meager investments, plundered public wealth, neglected Polavaram and even turned Amaravati as ‘Bramaravati’ looting all those valuable lands. He said that everything in the state was fraudulent during the TDP regime and demanded an answer on what Rs 10,000 crore was spent in Amaravati, while there were no infrastructure facilities and permanent buildings.
MLA Srikanth Reddy said that Chandrababu could have developed Visakhapatnam as a world class capital with half the expenditure and with the rest, he could have built permanent buildings like the High Court and Assembly, including the staff quarters. Surprisingly he had spent Rs 10,000 crore without even completing at least one building, and even the house where he stays lacks drainage system and pumps the waste into the river, he said and added that Chandrababu who boasts as a visionary leader, failed miserably to develop  Rayalaseema and North Andhra regions, as he is least concerned about those regions. 
Referring to the investments, he said that over Rs 40,000 crore investments have come to Andhra Pradesh in the last 30 months despite reeling through Covid times. While there were no welfare schemes for Chandrababu to own in his five year rule, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy prioritized welfare and spent Rs 1.2 lakh crore through DBT. He recalled how Chandrababu crippled the State finances making it a debt ridden with over Rs 3.5 lakh crore.
He slammed Naidu for blaming the government over the delay of Polavaram and stated that it was due to negligence of the previous government, who couldn’t even do proper planning. Srikanth Reddy challenged Naidu to contest alone in the coming elections if he has faith over his five-year rule.
