VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is set to attend the NITI Aayog Governing Council meeting in New Delhi, has organised a series of meetings with the officials and discussed the issues to be raised in the meeting to be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

For the second consecutive day on Thursday, Naidu conducted review meetings with the officials at the Interim Government Complex in Velagapudi and discussed the issues to be raised in the meeting to be held in New Delhi on June 17.

The Chief Minister said that the issues related to the AP Reorganisation Act and its improper implementation must be raised at the Niti Aayog meeting as it is the best platform to have deliberations for the betterment of the State.

Naidu added that at the Niti Aayog meeting, he will raise the poor condition of the service sector in the State, which is a direct result of bifurcation.

Expressing his dissent over the Central government’s policies such as demonetisation, the Chief Minister said that such moves led to people losing trust in the government, which is a very unfortunate signal. A repercussion of which is the cash crunch that the State is facing as people are reluctant to deposit money in the banks, he said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials to conduct a detailed study on the increase in the prices of petrol and diesel and provide him complete information on the same. He felt that the Centre made a cruel joke at one stage by slashing the price of fuel by a single paisa.
