Vijayawada: City Congress Committee president Adapa Nagendra came down heavily on the Telugu Desam Party leaders and demanded them to tender an apology for alleging that the Congress party has neglected the development of the city. Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, Nagendra refuted the allegations of the TDP and recalled that the city was well developed during the nine-year rule of the Congress. More than eight projects, including two flyovers, were constructed by the Congress government. The TDP had failed to develop the city when TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu was at the helm, but was now indulging in mud-slinging in order to gain political mileage. The TDP leaders are demanding for a flyover near Kanaka Durga temple, but the same project was rejected by the TDP government during N Chandrababu Naidu's tenure, he recalled. City Congress leader M Rajeswara Rao said that Devineni Umamaheswara Rao has no right to talk about the development of the city as earlier he opposed the construction of transfer station and dumping yard at Ibrahimpatnam. Former Deputy Mayor S Narasaraju said that the Congress party was instrumental in the development of the city. Notably, outer ring road at Mustabada, Ramavarappadu and Kondapalli were constructed by the Congress government, he reminded. He challenged the TDP leaders to come forward for an open debate on the development of the city.
