In a scathing attack, Rajya Sabha member and YSRCP national general secretary, V Vijayasai Reddy, has exposed what he refers to as the darker aspects of Chandrababu Naidu’s actions, drawing attention to recent notices issued by the Income Tax (IT) department. Reddy also accused Naidu of exploiting economically weaker sections (EWS) housing initiatives for his personal gain.

Speaking on various issues on Monday, MP Vijayasai Reddy vociferously addressed several pressing concerns, asserting that Chandrababu Naidu had allegedly accepted a bribe of Rs 118 crore in relation to temporary structures constructed in Amaravati, funded by public money.

Additionally, he claimed that a construction contract worth Rs 8000 crores had been awarded to Shapoorji Pallonji for the construction of housing units for impoverished citizens and that Naidu had received illicit kickbacks in the process. Reddy asserted that Naidu had been implicated by the IT department for receiving these kickbacks, which were allegedly in the form of Dubai Dinars.

The MP also highlighted the State government’s initiative to replace older diesel buses with new electric buses, with the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APS RTC) allocating Rs 1500 crores for the purchase of 1500 new e-buses. Reddy said that the e-bus services would connect district headquarters, offering a 27% reduction in operating costs and contributing to environmental protection.

He pointed out that 100 e-buses had already been introduced in Tirumala-Tirupati, showcasing the State’s commitment to sustainable transportation.

Vijayasai Reddy celebrated the progress of Digital India, citing record-breaking digital transaction figures in the country as evidence of its success. He revealed that as of August 2023, the number of UPI transactions had exceeded 10 billion, equating to a staggering Rs 15.76 lakh crore in cashless transactions. Reddy presented statistics indicating that by July 2023, 9.96 billion transactions worth Rs 15.34 lakh crore had taken place, with 9.34 billion transactions amounting to Rs 14.75 lakh crore recorded by June 2023. These statistics, Reddy argued, clearly demonstrated the growing prominence of digital transactions in India.
