Visakhapatnam: Dubbing Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu as the fountainhead of corruption who has amassed Rs four lakh crores during his 4.5- year term, the YSR Congress Party said that the TDP chief has been making new friends by funding the elections in other states besides reserving a huge amount for 2019 elections in Andhra Pradesh while Pawan Kalyan has been his stooge.
Speaking to media here on Tuesday, Party National General Secretary and Rajya Sabha MP V Vijaysai Reddy said, “Chandrababu Naidu has become the financier to various Parties in the elections as he has diverted huge sums to the neighbouring Karnataka by vehicles of an MP who owns a transport company and now has been funding Congress in the Telangana elections from the ill-gotten wealth plundered in the state through corruption and kickbacks.”
By sending Revanth Reddy as a pilot to clear the way for the deal, Chandrababu Naidu has fanned over 1,200 crores covering all the 119 assembly constituencies which is evident by the national Party advertisements showing a larger picture of Chandrababu Naidu. People have every right to know the deal between Congress and TDP.
We have the details of how money is being distributed in other states and TDP even today has an understanding with BJP, he said.
His generosity was extended to Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh as the two states received Rs 500 crores each for Congress which has drawn Rahul Gandhi closer to Chandrababu. The TDP leader also has plans to follow the Nandyal example of distributing Rs 5,000 per vote and has reserved a huge amount for the 2019 elections.
The money is being distributed by lesser known political figures for parking in the respective constituencies ahead of the polls. The ill-gotten wealth has come in the form of kickbacks of over 40% commissions from various contracts given on nomination method, GOs to favour his coterie, real estate and other mercantile activities in the garb of governance, he said.
He has bought 23 MLAs in AP and burnt his fingers in Telangana when he tried to repeat the same trick.
“There could be threats as we have seen the attack on our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy at Vizag airport and I am prepared for any eventuality but am appealing to the people to be wary of such people who are out to corporatize everything including governance and welfare and reject them at the hustings,” he said.
Jana Sena is also part of the TDP corruption and we do not consider Jana Sena a big force, he said while replying to questions.
