Srikakulam: Continuing his attack on ruling YSRCP, former Chief Minister and TDP Supremo N Chandrababu Naidu said that CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and DGP Gautam Sawang are making funny comments over the murder of TDP activists.
Talking to newspersons here in Srikakulam on Monday, Naidu said that Jagan has been resorting to Pulivendula politics in the state by encouraging the killing of TDP activists. Coming down heavily on DGP Sawang, Naidu said that police have failed to maintain law and order in the state. The police, who are supposed to protect the people, are instead suppressing their voice.
Speaking on the sand crisis, Naidu expressed that constructions have been affected in North Andhra Pradesh of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, and Vizag due to shortage of sand. Over 2,500 projects in the region are stalled, or they have slowed down due to a lack of sand, he added
More or less over six lakh people (daily-wage workers in the construction sector, masons and others) have lost their livelihood due to the shortage of sand. YSRC’s sand policy has failed to supply the required sand, and it has pushed sand prices, Naidu added. The Jagan government shut down Anna Canteens in the state. This has affected the poor people in the state, who depend on the food available at Rs 5, TDP Supremo noted.
The YSRC government was responsible for the death of Kodela Siva Prasad. Jagan has been using his power to take revenge on TDP instead of focusing on the development of the state, Naidu pointed out. He further added that TDP played a vital role in the development of Cyberabad and the creation of enormous employment in the IT sector. However, Jagan has indulged in cheap politics and tarnished the image of Andhra Pradesh in the global map, Naidu said.
The TDP leader, while in Srikakulam Town, said that he would hold review meetings with party leaders on Monday and Tuesday to strengthen the party in the district
