VIJAYAWADA: Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee secretary Kolanukonda Sivaji asked chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu to withdraw his comments made at the Collectors’ Conference in which he asked the district collectors to “listen to the party (TDP) workers’ demands.”

Sivaji said that Chandrababu had made a veiled threat to the officers to follow the orders of the TD activists and said that this was undemocratic and unconstitutional.

In a release here Friday, the Congress leader also found fault with the chief minister for holding the Collectors’ Conference in a swanky star hotel by spending lakhs of rupees while the state was going through a crisis of funds. “At Acharya Nagarjuna University campus, Guntur, we have all the facilities to conduct conferences like these and there is ample parking facility too. But, the government has organised the meeting at the star hotel in the city by spending huge money for which there was no need. It is ridiculous and objectionable.” he added.
