Transparency is top priority of the government: Sajjala

Vijayawada, Jul 2 (UNI) Advisor (Public Affairs) to the government of Andhra Pradesh Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said that the government had spent over Rs 28,000 crores towards welfare schemes where the beneficiaries directly received the amount.
Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, he said that former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is repeating the same lies to confuse the public, but people are neither going to believe him nor forget his atrocious rule.
Mr.Chandrababu Naidu is alleging corruption charges against the government in the procurement of ambulances. “Mr.Naidu should know that our government stands for transparency and corruption-free. While the State government launched 1088 ambulances on par with international standards with the latest facilities, instead of showing appreciation, Naidu is alleging that Rs.300 crore corruption took place in purchasing ambulances”, he lashed out.
Mr.Reddy said that the former Chief Minister should be ashamed for making false claims as he introduced 1800 ambulances during his rule. All that he left to the State is Rs. 2.54 lakh crore of debts and Rs.64,000 crore pending bills.
Mr Naidu promised to clear all agricultural loans of Rs 85,000 crore, but he managed to clear only a small portion of about Rs.15,000 crore in a five-year period. Unlike Naidu, Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy spent Rs.10,200 crore only for Rythu Bharosa in a span of one year and cleared all the pending bills for services like Aarogyasri, MSMEs and fee reimbursement, Mr Reddy claimed.
