AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday slammed Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress Party and K Chandrasekhar Rao-led Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) for not supporting West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee during her ‘dharna’ against the Centre.
“Narendra Modi is spoiling the entire nation. When the Centre targetted Mamata Banerjee, only two parties in India did not oppose the Centre- YSRCP and TRS. It is evidence of the fact that these parties are colluding with the BJP”, CM Naidu said during his speech in the state Assembly.
The West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee started "Save India" dharna in front of Metro Cinema in the heart of Kolkata on the night of February 3 over the CBI's attempt to question the Kolkata Police commissioner in connection with chit fund scams. However, Banerjee ended her fast on February 5.
Meanwhile, sharing plans made to develop Andhra Pradesh, Naidu said:
“Vision, Innovation, Accountability, Digitalization, Uberization, Convergence, Technology – VIADUCT is our new mantra for the overall development of the state”.
He also said that Andhra Pradesh will be one of the top three states of India by 2022, top state of India by 2029, and an international standards state by 2050.
Talking about the efforts undertaken by the state government for youth in the state, Naidu said:
“We are already giving unemployment allowance of Rs 1000 to the youth. From the March 1, we will give unemployment allowance at an increased level of Rs 2000.”
“We are providing welfare insurance scheme under Chandranna Bima Yojana to 2.10 lakh families. We are directly giving pensions, insurance, and other schemes. We are providing quality food at Rs 5 only through Anna Canteens,’ he added.
