Vijayawada: Seemingly anger over Opposition's alleged false propaganda, MLA TJR Sudhakar Babu said TDP leaders have lost their minds after crushing defeat in the Municipal elections.

Addressing a press meet here on Tuesday, he slammed TDP MLC Nara Lokesh for targeting the government over the demolition of illegal encroachments in Mangalagiri.

He said TDP leaders have approached the court and stalled the allocation of house sites to 54,000 people belonging to weaker sections in Amaravati region. He dared Lokesh to answer these people, rather than worrying about the encroached lands.

Countering TDP State President Atcchanaidu's allegations, MLA Sudhakar said TDP leaders bartered the future of the state for special package instead of special status as was promised in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act.

He stated that Chandrababu paired with Narendra Modi before the 2014 polls and formed the government. He, however, deceived people by failing to keep the promises.

Flaying TDP spokesperson Pattabhi for spreading false propaganda on upgraded sand policy, he said that going by the sayings of TDP leaders, it has been proved that they had looted Rs 50,000 Crore in the name of free sand and by appointing janmabhumi committees.

He said utmost transparency was maintained in selecting the contractor. He said that the government allowed to extract only 2 crore metric tonnes of sand per annum.

With the price capped at Rs 475 per tonne, the total value on this contract is not more than Rs 950 crore. Of which the company will have to pay Rs 765 crore to the government and the remaining goes towards operational costs.
