Gangadhara Nellore: Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu's foreign trips are to stash away his black money earned through commissions in state projects, Leader of Opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said.

Addressing a public meeting at Penumuru in Gangadhara Nellore constituency on the 57th day of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra on Tuesday, he said the chief minister's foreign trips do not bring-in any foreign investments for Andhra Pradesh. "Electricity charges were hiked to Rs 8.75 per unit and royalty charges increased to Rs 2,400. Faced with these increased charges, over 400 granite factories in the district are facing closure. That will render scores of people jobless. These are in addition to the closure of two profit-making cooperative dairy units. Instead of preventing the closure of these units, the chief minister is misleading the people about bringing-in more investments," YS Jagan said.

Stating that the issues of farmers, students, healthcare, pensions, DWCRA women were among the priorities of the YSRCP Navaratnas, the YSRCP chief called on the people to put forth their suggestions regarding their implementation.
