GVL and Vijayasai react on excessive Iftar spendings


BJP MP GVL Narasimha Rao has begun targetting the YCP government. He has indirectly questioned the wisdom of spending Rs. 1.8 cr on Iftar dinner when the AP state has a deficit budget problem. Iftar dinners are also organised in BJP-ruled states but they don’t have financial crunch on a huge scale.

Meanwhile, the YCP leaders are objecting to the comments on Iftar cost. Party MP Vijayasai Reddy tweeted saying that during Chandrababu Naidu’s rule, Rs 18 lakh was spent on nuts only for four persons. The YCP leaders say that the Iftar should not be seen as not just a dinner but something held in an official, formal way.

GVL Narasimha Rao’s response has created sensation in political circles as this is the first time that the BJP leader has reacted against the YCP government. This is ringing warning bells for YCP leaders who obviously cannot hit back at BJP leaders.
