Where is the development, CBN?

Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandra Babu recently made a few interesting comments during the collectors’ conference. The TDP supremo said that the party had to quit the NDA alliance just before the elections to kickstart the fight for special status.

Babu said that the central government has been of no use in the past 4 years and that has affected the state in many ways. Interestingly, CBN stated that the Andhra Pradesh has seen a lot of development in TDP’s reign. He added that TDP fought against all odds and ensured that the welfare of the public was their primary agenda.

Sadly, the reality is far from what Babu declared in the conference. The complete loan waiver scheme that was promised during 2014 elections is yet to be fulfilled. The unemployment allowance of Rs 2000 for every unemployed individual is still under the sheets. The master plans that were prepared for capital Amaravati looked extravagant on the computer screen, but the plans were confined for graphical presentation. There is absolutely no progress in Amaravati whatsoever, revealed a few sources.

With all this going on, Babu’s contradicting statement that the state has achieved great development may not be received well by the public.
