Alleging that the Telugu Desam government was looting Andhra Pradesh indiscriminately, YSR Congress Party MLA RK Roja here on Sunday observed that Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu’s proclamation that he would achieve 15 per cent growth rate is ridiculous.
Speaking to mediapersons in the party’s main office this afternoon, Roja asked how it would be possible for any one to achieve 15 per cent growth rate in the State while the country’s growth rate was seven per cent. She questioned whether Chandrababu Naidu knows how to calculate growth rate. Stating that agriculture, industries and IT sectors were in the shambles under the Chandrababu Naidu government, Roja reminded that the growth rate did not cross single digit during his earlier regime in united Andhra Pradesh.
The YSRCP leader also ridiculed the TDP government saying that it stood at No 1 in farmers’ suicides, criminal assaults on women and insulting the womenfolk. She also alleged that the striking Anganwadi workers were got thrashed by lathi-wielding police personnel and tortured with pins. She also alleged that the TDP leaders have turned into pin-wielding psychopaths.
Questioning the TDP government as to why it was treating Anganwadi workers as outcasts and belittling them, the actor-politician accused Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu of shielding Goverrnment Whip Chintamaneni Prabhakar, who attained notoriety by scolding a woman MRO in foul language. She also lashed out at the Chief Minister saying Chandrababu was least bothered about the problems of women because he has no daughters. (NSS)
