TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu alleged that the YSRCP government has pushed the state of Andhra Pradesh to debt. Chandrababu Naidu, in a tweet, said, "Anything the YCP government has achieved in 6 months is a record of debts. About Rs 25,000 crores in six months, about three and a half thousand crores per month. Why did you have to borrow 5 times in August alone."

Furthermore, he added, "I have repeatedly accused the YSP government of borrowing and sinking the state into debt. Advice should be taken if the regime does not. And how about the burden of public debt on pride?" Naidu's son and TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh also echoed similar sentiments and took to Twitter to express his displeasure with the government. "The first misstep that sounded the bugle for a string of failures of @ysjagan was the demolition of Praja Vedika. In the first month itself, he showed his true self - a man with a factionist mindset and propensity to commit violence and destruction," Lokesh tweeted.
