HYDERABAD: "If there is no government in the state, the people will be relieved of some problems. The government is supposed to solve the problems. But the present Congress government is complicating the matters further," Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu has said.

Expressing his grief over the illicit liquor tragedies at Mylavaram in Krishna and at Choutuppal in Nalgonda districts, Naidu said the incidents happened due to inefficient and negative governance of the Congress.

He alleged that as many as 80 MLAs, six to seven ministers, eight MPs and seven MLCs were involved in liquor syndicates and getting Rs 5,000 crore kickbacks. "As there is a government, the ministers, MPs and other ruling party leaders are acting for their selfish interests and ruining the people's lives.

If there is no government at all, such incidents could not have happened," Naidu felt.

The TDP president demanded an allparty meeting to discuss the liquor issue in the state. He said the government should place the ACB report on raids on liquor shops before the allparty meeting.

Though the liquor tragedies claimed 16 lives, the government is yet to send any official to the two places. "The government is now talking of ordering a probe into the incidents. If people elect useless parties they will face this kind of problems," Naidu remarked.

Stating that the chief minister and other ministers were not visiting any places to know the people's problems at the ground level, Naidu said the Kiran Kumar Reddy government had no moral right to continue in the office.

He said the TDP would send two teams to Mylavaram and Choutuppal to probe into the incidents and extend moral support to the bereaved families.
