Srikakulam: Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is more interested in commissions from various projects than working for the welfare of farmers in the state, YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said.
Addressing a massive public meeting in Hiramandalam area under Pathapatnam assembly constituency here on Friday, he said the chief minister believes that there is no gain from giving Rs 1,000 crore to farmers’ welfare. Hence, he has diverted all the funds meant for farmers for other projects in order to earn commission from contractors, the YSRCP chief said. “For instance, 90% of the Vamshadhara Phase-II project was completed during YS Rajasekhar Reddy’s regime and only 10 percent of the work remained. But that is being delayed since Chandrababu Naidu came to power three years ago. The cost of the remaining 10 percent of the project has escalated to over Rs 400 crore and is yet to be completed,” YS Jagan said.
