BJP govt cheating AP, alleges Rajakumari
Chairperson of AP Women’s Commission Nannapaneni Rajakumari here on Sunday alleged that the BJP government at the Centre was cheating Andhra Pradesh by not implementing the promises made in Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act-2014.
Visakhapatnam: Chairperson of AP Women’s Commission Nannapaneni Rajakumari here on Sunday alleged that the BJP government at the Centre was cheating Andhra Pradesh by not implementing the promises made in Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act-2014.
She alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was adopting a step-motherly towards Andhra Pradesh. She expressed concern over the inordinate delay being caused in implementation of the assurances made in the Act.
Addressing the media here on Sunday, Rajakumari said that she was questioning the Prime Minister on behalf of 2.5 crore AP women and demanded that the Centre should change its attitude towards the State.
She pointed out that following demonetisation, people in the State particularly women faced tough time. Again, with the shortage of currency notes at ATMs, the women were facing problems.
She said Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu met several Union Ministers and also Prime Minister for about 30 times in New Delhi and sought sanction of various pending projects and other issues, but the Centre is not coming forward at least on one issue. Rajakumari criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for adopting unilateral stand and not consulting other NDA allies while taking policy decisions.
She pointed out that the Centre had presented Sthree Shakthi awards at the national-level on the occasion of the International Women’s Day on March 8, but no single woman was selected from Andhra Pradesh. “This shows the BJP government’s love and affection to Andhra women,” she said.
Rajakumari said it is high time for women to come out and fight against the Centre to protect the interests of the State. She said she would lead agitations at ATMs if the Centre failed to take immediate steps to make cash available at the ATMs.
