YSR Congress blames Naidu again

Dec 5, 2015

The YSR Congress Party leaders have accused Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu with covertly supporting the sand mafia and looting State’s natural resources.

Party Senior Leader Botsa Satyanarayana told reporters alleged that there was huge misappropriation of funds in price fixation of sand and the sand mining benefitting the TDP leaders. He added that the price of sand per cubic meter was raised by TDP government in north coastal districts from from Rs 40 to a drastic Rs 550 per cubic metre, while decreasing the prices at some other places. Mr.Botsa accused that the turnover involved in the sand transactions might be around Rs. 3,000 crore, but the government had been only showing the accounts to Rs. 850 crores. The rest had gone into the pockets of those people close to powers that be, he added.

The YSRCP leader has also urged State Government to take effective measures in support of the Telugu people in Chennai, who were affected by the floods. “Parts of Chittoor and Nellore were also affected and the state should provide effective relief measures,” he added. Lok Sabha YSRCP MP Mekapati Rajmohan Reddy sought Centre aid for the rain hit areas and demanded relief measures to people affected by torrential rains.
