Amit Shah Lies Exposed – AP Government releases UCs

On March 16, the TDP walked out of the NDA over the BJP-led Centre’s failure to accord a special-category status to Andhra Pradesh. Since then war of words and letters has been happening between BJP and TDP leaders.

On March 23rd , BJP President Amit Shah had written an open letter to the Andhra chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, accusing Andhra Pradesh government did not submit utilization certificates for the central government funds to capital Amaravati, Backward districts.On this context, Telugu360 did some fact finding on utilization certificates released by AP government.

There are mainly two accusations in Amit Shah letter. He stated Utilisation Certificates (UCs) have been received only for 12% of the grant released for backward districts in 2016 -17 and UCs were received only for 8% for the 1000 crore released for the Capital regionSince, it is mandatory for the Central Government to have these details to release further installments: it cannot be blamed for fund lapses

But the UC documents released by Andhra Pradesh government have utilization certificates completed, submitted to union government to maximum extent.Amit Shah will be held responsible for his baseless accusations on a state government

First document shows NITI AAYOG certified statement confirms that AP government had submitted utilization certificates for Amaravati funds 2014-15,2015-16,2016-17

Second document shows AP government had submitted 946.47 crores UCs out of the released 1,050 Crores

Greatandhra’s hypocrisy regarding Naidu’s new house


Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Nara Chandrababu Naidu is building a new house in Hyderabad by demolishing his old house in Road No 65, Jubilee Hills. The old home had only two bed rooms and a hall and so the family decided to rebuild the house in the same land as his family has grown after Naidu’s son Lokesh got married. Family has grown even bigger with arrival of Naidu’s grandson. For a Chief Minister, the new planned house, as per GHMC approval, a three floor structure with five bed rooms and a courtyard, is a modest one. However, Greatandhra portal didn’t like this and started spitting venom. There was a report (Title : Why does Naidu need a mansion in Hyderabad) appeared in that portal  yesterday questioning why Naidu was building a house in Hyderabad when the city is no longer part of new state.

The said portal didn’t have the ‘DARE TO WRITE’ about Jagan and question Jagan as to why he built a ‘White House’ palace in Bangalore, between 2004-2009, when the capital of the state was Hyderabad. And even to date, Jagan still lives in Hyderabad and stays in Bangalore on weekends but NOT in new Andhra Pradesh. Being main opposition party leader, Mr. Jagan mohan Reddy has crucial responsibility of staying in his own state ( residual AP) all the time. The portal that ‘DARES TO WRITE’ never wrote on this. The portal also bemoans that Naidu is building a 19,000 square feet.

Firstly, as per GHMC layout reviewed by Telugu360, the proposed new house by Naidu family is much smaller than reported and it is a 5-bed room house. Again, the portal in the past never wrote about 90,000 sq ft area Lotus Pond,which has 30 bed rooms and a three-floor underground parking  .

This type of article is an example of agenda driven propaganda in garb of journalism. Mr. Naidu has his own shortfalls, all the media including Telugu360 portal have reported extensively on various issues related to Naidu’s government wrong deeds and his political incorrect actions. Criticizing Mr. Naidu for building a house in Hyderabad on his own property is part of hate propaganda carried out vehemently by certain section of media. This portal always refers to other news papers as “yellow (Pacha) media”. But, in reality isn’t this text book “yellow journalism” by GreatAndhra  ?

Naidu appoints party committees


With the rise of son on the TDP horizon, TDP president Chandrababu seems to have emboldened to appoint a central committee to the party, which is hitherto unknown. Apart from party politburo and separate committees for states of Andhra Pradesh, Naidu appointed a central committee to the party. As Nara family is now in the complete grip of party affairs, Naidu appointed N Harikrishna, son of NT Ramarao and his brother-in-law to the politburo. This appointment, it appears, is to keep NTR family in good humor. Because, Harikrishna is keeping himself aloof from the party activities for quite some time. Naidu will remain the party president. After Lokesh-Brahmani marriage and Balakrishna becoming MLA, the battle for NTR legacy between Nara and Nandamuri families was over. This is said to be the reason for Harikrishna’s disappearance from the party activities.
