A day after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and Opposition leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy questioned each others English skills and educational background, the latter did it yet again on Saturday.

Speaking in the Assembly, Jagan mocked  Labour Minister K Atchan Naidu and pointed out that he had said 'Common Effect Treatment' plant instead of 'Common Effluent Treatment' plant.

"Learn something sir," Jagan remarked.

Not taking the remark lightly, the minister hit back at Jagan saying, "I didn't study in Hyderabad Public School like you. I sat on the mud and studied in a government school. There are differences between you and me.

"If I had also studied like you and could speak good English, I wouldn't give you a single moment to speak in this Assembly,"  he added

The minister also hit out at Jagan for constantly questioning educational qualifications for every small mistake, just because he came from a rich background and could afford to study in Hyderabad.

"You may have money and authority, but you are only a one-time MLA. I'm a four-time MLA. I have experience in this Assembly. This is the first time you are here," he added.

Responding to the remarks, Jagan said, "He is right, that this is my first time as an MLA and you are more experienced. But remember, you can never get a majority of over 5 lakh votes like I did."

Jagan was referring to his win in the Kadapa by-poll in 2011. He also 'reminded' the Andhra Minister that he had been an MP two times before he became an MLA.

A day earlier, CM Naidu had hit out at Jagan saying, "A person who does not even reveal his educational qualifications and where he studied, has no rights to question the government. It seems like this person has never written an exam,"

Responding to Naidu's statement, Jagan said, “These people are questioning my education. I have not come from a school where the kind of poor English that the Chief Minister speaks, is taught. I was a first class student in Class 10, Class 12 and Degree. I'm did not discontinue my PhD like Mr Naidu."
