The YSRCP on Monday dubbed Andhra Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu's efforts to architect a pan-India platform against the BJP, and his stepping into the national scene as a "ploy to divert attention" from the worst governance and corruption in the state. Senior party leader Botsa Satyanarayana made several allegations against the TDP-led government in the state, and against Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, and ‘warned’ parties that wanted to ally with the TDP to understand the “true state of affairs” in the state.

Addressing the media, Botsa Satyanarayana alleged, “The corruption and nepotism has been so rampant in the state that he (Chandrababu Naidu) has been finding ways to wriggle out from the charges by stooping to murky levels.” Satyanarayana then went on to list all the corruption allegations against the Chief Minister.

Telling the Congress and other national parties who wish to be in an alliance with TDP to know the “true state of affairs in the Andhra government,” the YSRCP leader pointed to the recent corruption allegations by two senior bureaucrats who worked with Chandrababu Naidu; he claimed that a few people were favoured and given contracts at exorbitant rates for building the temporary Secretariat at Amaravati.

Ajay Kallam, former Chief Secretary of Andhra Pradesh, recently made allegations of corruption and irregularities against the Chandrababu Naidu government. He claimed that the Chief Minister had paid a whopping Rs 11,000 per square feet to construct the Amaravati interim administrative building, and had given Rs 700 crore to a media publishing house in last four years. At an event in Tirupati, the former bureaucrat further alleged that there was a mobile phone scam in the state – he said that the government had purchased five lakh mobiles at Rs 7,500 each, as against its original price of Rs 4,000.

Adding to these allegations, the YSRCP leader Botsa Satyanarayana claimed that prime land worth Rs 450 crore was given at throwaway prices. He also said that parties like the Congress must take into consideration allegations for NREGS funds diversion.  

He also alleged that Chandrababu wants to turn the state into a haven for criminals, tax evaders and corrupt persons, following the Andhra government’s decision to withdraw general consent to CBI from barring its' executions in the drawn.

Botsa along with other YSRCP leaders urged national parties to look through the credentials of Chandrababu Naidu who they claimed “has a history of distorting facts, manipulating situations and rolling with opportunist prances oscillating from one side to the other without any morals or ethics.”
