YSRCP govt should order CBI probe into its scams, corruption, says TDP

South India

Furious with YSRCP government ordering of CBI probe into irregularities in previous TDP regime, the party has demanded the state government to hold CBI enquiry on YSRCP's scams and unchecked corruption.


In its online strategy committee meeting, the Telugu Desam Party alleged that YSRCP leaders are indulged in mafia scams in sand, land, wine, mine, COVID kits, bleaching powder and cement.

The party added that instead of vainly targeting the opposition, the Government would do a better service to people if it ordered the CBI enquiry into the unchecked corruption scams of YSRCP.

They said that the ruling party went into self-defence as it was unable to give a reply to the TDP charge sheet on its one-year scams and "destructive" rule.

The party stated that there was a public backlash against cancellation of TDP schemes like Ramzan Thofa, Christmas Gift and Sankranthi Kanuka, and to cover it up, the YSRCP came out with CBI probe.

TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu, Opposition Leader in Council Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Public Accounts Committee chairman Payyavula Kesav, TDLP deputy leaders Atchannaidu, Nimmala Ramanaidu, Gorantla Butchaiah Chowdary and others took part in the meeting.

The Andhra Pradesh government on Thursday had decided to order a probe by the CBI into the welfare schemes of previous TDP rule.

On Thursday, the state Cabinet which met  under the chairmanship of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, approved the recommendations made by a Cabinet subcommittee. 

The state cabinet  Sub-committee has recommended a thorough investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the alleged corruption during the Telugu Desam Party's regime under Chandrababu Naidu between 2014-19.

The subcommittee, headed by Finance Minister Buggana Rajendranath, conducted a preliminary inquiry into schemes like 'Chandranna Tohfa', 'Chandranna Christmas Gift', 'Chandranna Sankranti Kanuka' and also the AP Fibrenet project and submitted its report.

It also recommended the CBI to investigate alleged corruption in the Rs 1,000-crore tenders for AP Fibergrid.

The cabinet subcommittee has identified irregularities in ghee purchases from Heritage Foods Limited. It had also identified that corruption had taken place in Tera Software Limited which was awarded the project work for AP Fibergrid .
