The price of onions in AP has touched Rs. 200 per kg. The government is giving subsidy onions at Rs 25 a kg and only one kg per person. Long queues of one to two kilometres are there at Rythu Bazars. TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu says that even these onions sold by Circar are nearly 40 per cent rotten. But, the government is not caring to monitor and ensure good supply. Naidu said that one man named Sambaiah died while waiting for onions at a queue at Gudiwada Rythu Bazar. There was no immediate medical help to Sambaiah when he collapsed at the queue.
Naidu said that Jagan Reddy was not showing any sensitivity to people’s problems. The YCP is not ready to discuss burning issues in the Assembly. Jagan Reddy preferred to make cheap comments during discussion on Disha killers. Naidu accused Speaker Tammineni Sitaram of not taking up discussions on people’s problems. He is not giving mike to TDP. Naidu said that he had no choice but to hold a press conference at his party office to raise burning problems as he was not being given mike in Assembly. Naidu recalled how YCP rowdies removed current for the house of a woman officer in Nellore. They even struck fear by threatening to release snakes into her house. Referring to MLA Anam comments, Naidu said that there is no sensitive government in AP.
