Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday slammed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy over his 'five months' misrule'. Naidu called the Chief Minister the "Nero of Andhra Pradesh" and stated that "he is busy playing video-games at his palatial home."
When Rome burned, Nero fiddled. When AP is burning under financial strain due to 5 months' misrule & construction workers are ending lives, the Nero of AP @ysjagan is busy playing video-games at his palatial home on which a staggering Rs.15.65 Cr was spent by the Govt. Shocking! pic.twitter.com/XeGK2OAZK4— N Chandrababu Naidu (@ncbn) November 7, 2019
Earlier on Wednesday, The TDP chief had raised questions over the amount of money spent on the Chief Minister's new camp and residence office building. Taking it to Twitter, Naidu questioned the funds allegedly allocated to fix windows of the chief minister's residence. The TDP has also accused CM Reddy of wasting crores of rupees in the state.
.@ysjagan’s Govt has allotted a whopping Rs. 73 LAKHS to fix WINDOWS for his house! Now that’s one super expensive view at the expense of State exchequer! This comes at a time when AP is grappling with fiscal mess caused by mismanagement in the last 5 months. Truly cringe-worthy! pic.twitter.com/ABz5Vva2FB— N Chandrababu Naidu (@ncbn) November 6, 2019
Reddy was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on May 30. He took over from Naidu after the latter's party faced defeat in the Assembly elections. Soon after it, the TDP alleged that in June a government order was released for road widening works at his residence at Tadepalli village whereas on next day another order was released for making security arrangements like barricading, guard room, police barrack, security posts and helipad construction with an estimated amount of Rs 1.895 lakhs.
