Cabinet Meeting Only For Sindhu?

When Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu held a cabinet meeting on Saturday, people naturally expected that he would announce some crucial decisions concerning public. But they were surprised when Naidu announced hardly any decisions, except for announcing sops to badminton player Sindhu for winning Olympic medal.

This came in for sharp criticism from YSR Congress party. Senior leader of the party Ummareddy Venkateshwarlu alleged that the cabinet meeting has failed to discuss the core issues like special status and was a disappointment to the multitude of people which had high expectations.

"When Chandrababu Naidu came to brief the media about the cabinet meeting the expectations were high but he has utterly disappointed the people as it seems the core issues like special status, inadequate central funds, farmers issues, investment plans, deficit rainfall and others were not touched but for sanctioning land for a temple and a joint venture and sops to Olympian PV Sindhu," Ummareddy said.

It seems the State has given up the issue of special status as he did not speak to the Prime Minister on the issue but has shown great vigour in sanctioning lands to interested ventures. There has been no review on the Rs 4.67 lakh crore investment promised in the Partnership Summit.

The state had released water to cater to only 50 % of the actual needs. Farmers who turned into defaulters as Chandrababu Naidu has failed to fulfill his promise of loan waiver are bearing the brunt due to lack of water and no source of finance for the sowing season, he said.
