TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, during the ‘Yudha Bheri’ programme in Anantapur district on Thursday, criticised Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, holding him responsible for the inefficiency that has impacted Rayalaseema. Naidu alleged that 102 crucial projects in Rayalaseema, including 38 in Anantapur district alone, have suffered due to the current administration’s negligence.

Naidu emphasised the importance of interlinking rivers like Vamsadhara, Nagavali, Godavari, Pennar, and Krishna, highlighting the benefits it could bring to the State. He stressed that the availability of water and proper road infrastructure are vital for the creation of assets and overall development.

The TDP leader pointed out the delay in activating the Pattiseema and Handri-Neeva pump-sets in Anantapur despite the region experiencing a rain deficit this year.

Naidu expressed concern about the lack of understanding among the ruling authorities, questioning the timeline for completion of ongoing projects.

Providing agricultural statistics, Naidu noted that out of the total 47.20 lakh acres of agricultural land in Anantapur district, only 11.79 lakh acres are suitable for cultivation, and a meager 1.39 lakh acres receive irrigation facilities.

Drawing attention to the potential of Anantapur district becoming a horticultural hub if water is made available to all lands, Naidu criticised the current government, stating that their policies have led to a new form of exploitation. He also pointed out the positive impact of the automobile company Kia setting up its unit in Anantapur district, transforming the local landscape.

Furthermore, Naidu expressed his commitment to transforming Rayalaseema into a fertile region. He urged for improved connectivity with cities like Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad, stating that such links would enhance both the industrial and agricultural sectors, leading to overall progress in the region.
