Major irrigation minister P. Anil Kumar Yadav castigated Telugu Desam supremo and opposition leader N. Chandrababu Naidu for celebrating TDP founder and former chief minister N.T. Rama Rao’s birthday as Mahanadu even while backstabbing him and abusing him when was alive.
Further, he said that had NTR been alive now, he would have declared Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy as his true heir for the exceptional mandate given by the public in the 2019 general elections. NTR would have hailed Jagan for really trying to address people’s problems and trying to resolve them.
The minister also accused the YSRC Government of ruining the financial condition of the state while in fact it was he who had actually pushed the state into financial crisis. He also took exception to the faulted the former chief minister of trying to attribute ulterior motives to the government for allowing LG Polymers to hire the same advocate Mukul Rohtagi, whom the state government too engaged to look into the legal hassles in trifurcation of the capital.
He slammed Naidu for doing nothing towards construction of the Polavaram project except constructing the coffer dam and submerging thousands of villages by drawing water which comes through gravity. He also criticised the TD supremo for claiming to be an experienced and intellectual chief minister but playing cheap politics with every welfare scheme Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy introduced and implemented.
Yadav claimed that Jagan Mohan Reddy was the first CM in the entire nation for having taken up welfare schemes worth Rs 40,000 crore for 3.4 crore poor in the state.
He also charged Naidu with following his own Constitution and maintaining government organisations as his own private organisations. He termed Naidu as a manager and said he had no moral right to criticise or point fingers at Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy who was striving for the uplift of the poor.
