Jagan hands out facts, figures to prove APs rosy financial condition

Amaravati: Lambasting the Opposition TDP and its friendly media for showing the state's financials in poor light, Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy gave a presentation showing the facts and figures that prove that Andhra Pradesh is performing better than during the previous government's rule. "A concerted effort is being made by Chandrababu Naidu and his friendly media to show the state in dire straits, comparing it to Sri Lanka. In reality, the growth rate of Andhra Pradesh is very rosy and has been very encouraging," said Jagan on the second day of the Assembly session.

He said that after braving Covid-19, the state went forward balancing welfare and development and the state's performance was far better than the previous government's and even the national average. He gave details of the comparative figures on GDP, loans taken, government guarantees, and other indices to show the financial management which clearly are in favour of the state.






"The people of the state need to know that the budget of the previous government and our government is almost the same but the loans we have taken are less than during Chandrababu Naidu's regime. Why could he not launch the welfare schemes we are implementing?" he asked.

Earlier, industries minister G. Amarnath said the Opposition is trying to spoil the brand image of the state and has been writing to stall the industrial growth in AP.
