CM’s office ‘aluminium’ windows cost Rs 73 lakh
Hyderabad: The Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy led-government in Andhra Pradesh seems to have got itself entangled in numerous controversies after it came to power.
In recent times, there have been inevitable blunders committed by the Jagan Mohan-led administration and the AP government has been in the news for the wrong reasons. Trouble began for the Jagan Mohan led government when it decided to paint the sarpanch offices in Andhra Pradesh with the YSRC party colours. The second blunder was when the administration renamed Dr A. J. Abdul Kalam award to the YSR Vidhya Puruskar. These two decisions received massive backlash following which the government did a U-turn and retracted its decisions.
Another latest in the list of bad decisions is the sanctioning of Rs 73 lakh towards supply and installation of ‘Aluminium’ windows and doors for the Chief Minister’s camp residence and office block at Tadepalli in Guntur district.
NewsMeter has accessed the government order GO .R. T 259 issued in October directing the roads and building a department to carry out miscellaneous works worth Rs 73 lakh at the camp office in Tadepalli, Guntur.
Interestingly, Mr Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy had inaugurated the Central party office in August. Many criticised the decision of spending Rs 73 lakhs towards installing windows and doors at the camp office. They said that the amount was equivalent to purchasing a brand new, fully furnished independent house.
Another decision that drew flak in recent times is the sanctioning of Rs 6.89 crore for a helipad and a wider road at the Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s residence.
Questions are being raised on the hypocrisy of the YSR government which had accused the then Telugu Desam (TD) which was in power of personal expenditure.
