AMARAVATI: Telugu Desam Party Politburo Member Varla Ramaiah on Monday advised YSRCP Minister Botsa Satyanarayana to think rationally and logically to protect people’s interests on the Capital City issue rather than making false allegations against former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
Ramaiah demanded the Minister to explain to the people how he rose from a lower middle class background to become so rich that he was now trying to buy a fort of the Vizianagaram Maharaja’s family. Because of his corruption background, Botsa has no moral standing to criticise Chandrababu Naidu.
Addressing a press conference here, the TDP senior leader said that Botsa was solely responsible for Volkswagen not coming to Andhra Pradesh and his comment on loss of Rs. 11 Cr in the scandal was still a laughing stock in the state. If Volkswagen came to the state, it would have created 50,000 jobs by now to the youth of AP. Unlike Mr. Naidu, the YSRCP leaders were committed only to amassing their personal wealth through mindless scams and corruption.
Ramaiah asked the Minister why their government has failed to take action against the guilty in the past 14 months of their rule if there was insider trading in Amaravati project. It was unfortunate that the YSRCP Ministers were making wicked allegations in order to destroy the Capital City with utter disregard for the future development of AP people. Botsa was known for his hopeless comments like comparing Capital to a burial ground.
Ramaiah scoffed at the Minister’s comment that Amaravati was developed for benefitting only one caste. Botsa seemed to have no educational qualifications also going by how he was making meaningless statements. If Capital lands belong to only one rich caste, then the Minister should prove it. In fact, of the total 29,881 farmers who sacrificed their lands for Capital city, there were 20,490 small and marginal farmers who contributed less than an acre. There were only 12 farmers who contributed between 20 and 25 acres. Another 142 farmers contributed 10 to 20 acres. Botsa should check these facts before making false allegations against the TDP.
