Lok Satta founder Jayaprakash Narayan took potshots at TDP Government and AP CM Chandrababu Naidu for promising a Worldclass capital. ‘Lack of farsightedness is the reason behind it. A modern capital could be built if good standards were maintained in Education, Health, Employment and Culture. Capital can’t be built with an order or escalation of land prices to Rs 5 crore per acre. Rulers have been spending time with event management during Pushkarams and Festivals. Politicians have been indulging in caste politics for votes. Decentralization, Good Administration, Education, Health and people’s welfare are the areas to focus for development,’ he said.
JP described dethroning of NTR in the 90s by his own party leaders as immoral. He remains firm on his stand that there willn’t be much use of separate Telangana state without political reforms. ‘For Congress, Its a death blow in both Telugu states. In AP, A whole generation won’t accept Congress. Many leaders were leaving the party in Telangana. Their strategy to create wonders failed. People of Telangana have actually saved the Nation. Had if credit was given to Sonia instead of people, Congress and BJP might have divided states for political gains in future. Forcibly bifurcation willn’t happen in the country anymore,’ says the former MLA.
Mr. Jayaprakash Narayan says he liked 2-3 aspects in KCR’s rule – Implementation of modern methods in housing, steps taken for Irrigation and Drinking Water. He, however, expressed his displeasure on Babu’s rule in AP. He accused Naidu of spending time with Pushkarams, Amaravati foundation, freebies and caste politics. He slammed ruling parties for encouraging defections and buying of votes in MLC Elections.
