Amaravati, June 30: While the YSRCP government is relentlessly fighting against Covid-19 pandemic and at the same time implementing welfare schemes for the weaker sections, it was unfortunate that Opposition leader N Chandrababu Naidu was going on unleashing invectives against the government, said Minister for Municipal Administration Botsa Satyanarayana.
Speaking to the media here on Tuesday, he said nearly 9 lakh tests were conducted in AP to trace Corona and asked if there was any other state which had conducted so many tests. He said people know the efforts being made by the government in containing the virus and they would not believe in the untruths being uttered by Naidu who was just struggling for political existence which he had lost due to his wrong-doings and scams during his tenure. Is this all that he can do with his 40-year experience in the political field, he asked.
The Minister said the YSRCP government was clearing the Rs 60,000 crore debts to the industries left by Naidu during his regime and he drove the state into a debt trap of Rs 2.75 lakh crore. Is this the good governance that Naidu talks about, he asked. The credit goes to Naidu to have made the state 104 and 108 ambulance services redundant and totally non-existant. If anybody used to call for the services they used to either being told that the ambulances were under repair or that there was shortage of oil, he said.
Now Chief Minister YS jagan Mohan Reddy is revive the services by launching 1,088 ambulances today. Has the TDP ever thought of introducing such a large contingent of ambulances and why is Naidu hatching conspiracies even in the provision of welfare measures to the weaker sections, the Minister asked. Nobody can stop the government from going ahead with its welfare agenda for the poor, he said.
The Minister said the government is planning to give 30 lakh house site pattas to poor women to mark the birth anniversary of former chief minister the late YS Rajasekhar Reddy. Naidu seems to be politicising even the distribution of houses to the poor. Is this the kind of politics you pay, he asked.
