The YSR Congress party on Tuesday demanded a thorough investigation into the foreign trips of Chandrababu Naidu, the purpose, programme and result as he has been on many such visits to further his business interests ignoring the people’s issues.
“At a time when drought conditions are prevailing in the State on one hand and the Hudhud Cyclone affected people are left in the lurch, Chief Minister going on foreign trips spending huge amounts of public money is only to further the business interests of his coterie,” party MLA G Sreekanth Reddy told reporters here on Tuesday. A GO was issued sanctioning Rs 1.5 crore as advance for his Japan trip and his entourage has been busy to improve its business relations.
Going by the past experience as in the nine year tenure, Chandrababu Naidu has not brought a single multi-crore project to the State. On the contrary he has business interests in Far eastern nations and his frequent visits should be brought under a competent scanner, he said. While the foreign jaunts prove to be personal, he has been creating hype with the help of his friendly media that much is happening on the development front. The State should be categorical as to how much investment in being brought and what is the amount spent on the trips abroad, he said.
