Congress decries Naidu's remarks

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, AUG. 22. The Congress has criticised the TDP president, N. Chandrababu Naidu's report painting a grim situation of the State during the 100-day rule of the Rajasekhara Reddy Government.

Four Congress MLAs -- N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, E. Pratap Reddy, N. Manohar and M. Gopalakrishna -- told reporters on Sunday that Mr. Naidu was the Chief Minister for 3,280 days but the backwardness in Kuppam Assembly constituency represented by him reflected his misrule.

Quoting a letter written by Mr. Naidu to Dr. Reddy, they said there were 25 schools without buildings and another 15 school buildings were in a dilapidated condition in Kuppam constituency.

There were also 120 teacher posts vacant. The vacancies were reported from the time Mr. Naidu was the Chief Minister.

The MLAs also produced a letter written by Mr. Naidu to the Minor Irrigation Minister, A. Chandrasekhar, seeking repairs to seven tanks that developed breaches in Kuppam.

The position with regard to schools and tanks in Kuppam showed the progress achieved in the constituency.

Mr. Naidu had no moral right to criticise the Congress Government, they said.
