YSRCP leader and Allagadda MLA Bhooma Akhila Priya on Sunday criticized the ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government for issuing a Government Order (GO) which claimed that a TDP leader was the MLA for the constituency.

The state government issued GO no. 68 on Thursday, which while releasing Rs 2 crore as part of the constituency development fund, referred to TDP leader Gangula Prabhakar Reddy as the Allagadda MLA.

A report in The Hindu adds:

Accusing the Chandrababu Naidu government of discriminating against YSRC MLAs, she asked how can the government issue a GO citing the ruling party’s Allagadda constituency in-charge as MLA and allot constituency development funds to him. Akhila Priya told the media that she apprised officials of the ‘faux pas’ but the government was yet to respond or rectify it.

The report also quotes her as saying "The government had issued GO No. 68 stating that Rs 2 crore was released for 59 works recommended by Mr. Prabhakar Reddy. How did the government sanction funds to a TDP leader?"

However Allagadda seemingly, wasn't the only place that such an incident occurred.

YSRCP MLA Roja has alleged that elected representatives were ignored at Rayachoti, Bapatla, Santhanuthalapadum Kamalapuram, Maidkuru, Araku and other places and works were instead entrusted to the TDP leaders.
