AMARAVATI: TDP MP K. Rammohan Naidu, on Wednesday, demanded Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy to explain to the people of Andhra Pradesh whether he asked for fulfilment of the provisions in the AP Reorganisation Act during his just concluded visit to New Delhi.
The TDP MP said that the CM’s silence was raising several doubts if the Delhi tours were meant only to save himself from the illegal assets case. “In his election affidavit, Jagan stated that he was accused in 32 cases while 11 of them were being investigated by the CBI,” Naidu reminded.
Addressing the mediapersons here, the TDP MP reminded the Chief Minister that electorate in AP had given him 22 Lok Sabha MPs, 6 Rajya Sabha MPs and 151 MLAs to fight for their interests. “But, it appears that Jagan is mortgaging AP’s interests in Delhi streets,” he alleged.
Naidu faulted the CM for not feeling the responsibility to clear the air about his recent Delhi visits. Jagan should tell the people what he had achieved by his back-to-back visits to Delhi, Naidu suggested.
Naidu asked Jagan if he had questioned the PM about fulfilling the Reorganisaton promises and Special Category Status, apart from special railway zone to Visakhapatnam.
The TDP MP reminded that the CM made eloquent speeches on SCS during the hustings and after being voted to power, changed his stance and kept saying that he would keep pleading the Centre till they accord it. “Now, he is not even making a mention of SCS which is leading to several doubts,” he said.
Further, Rammohan Naidu ridiculed Jagan Reddy for returning almost empty-handed without any assurance from the Centre on issues relating to the development in AP like Polavaram and SCS. “Even the Union Jal Shakti ministry pointed out that the Polavaram project works were progressing at snail’s pace. The tardy progress in works is due to thoughtless reverse tendering drive taken up by the YSRCP government,” he said.
The TDP MP also faulted the CM for not speaking about Vizag railway zone or Dugarajapatnam port during his Delhi visits. “The YSRCP is the fourth largest party in the Parliament but its strength is not being used to protect the rights and interests of Andhra Pradesh,” he lamented.
