Naidu is working for his henchmen
There is nothing to speak on Amaravathi
We are committed for equal development for all areas
YS Jagan speaks to national media
The Chief minister of Andhrapradesh YS Jaganmohan Reddy alleged that former CM N.Chandrababu Naidu is working only to protect his henchmen, especially political barons and investors. Jagan alleged that the previous TDP government has considered the capital Amaravathi as a real estate venture and a business opportunity for the big wigs of that party and he claimed that his government is working to re-construct the state by giving equal priority to all areas by decentralizing the administration set up. He spoke to a national media and expressed his views deliberately. YS Jagan N Chandrababu Naidu of working and concentrating only on Amaravati, ignoring all other people centric issues.
Jagan was reacting to a question from a national media reporter as to why he was not asking for any cooperation from Naidu on taking crucial decisions, while his father late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy used to give due respect to his political rivals. “What cooperation are you referring to? After March, he has not set foot in Andhra while the state is battling the pandemic,” Jagan fumed. Jagan blamed that Naidu and his henchmen are confined only to protect their personnel interests and investments at Amaravathi. As of now the issue of Amaravathi is closed and its not a debatable and discussing issue.’ he said. He said his government had said time and again that it was for decentralised development. “There is no way we can consider one single place for development just because you and your colleagues purchased land there,” the chief minister said. Even the Sivaramakrishna committee also emphasised on decentralization but not to dump the all developmental activities at a single destination.
