SRIKAKULAM: The ruling Telugu Desam Party has been doing political business, setting aside actual governance of the state, said former minister and YSRC leader Botcha Satyanarayana. He was here Sunday to attend a private function and spoke to newsmen. Criticising the government, he said that people’s welfare was secondary to the TDP. Chief Minister N.Chandrababu Naidu was colluding with Singapore companies to get kickbacks. But the YSRC would fight to the end to get all the promises made on the occasion of the state bifurcation, said Botcha. “Our party would bring pressure on the Centre to get special status and other packages to Andhra Pradesh,” the YSRC leader promised. He demanded solution to the problems arising out of the state bifurcation. If the Central and the TDP governments fail to do it, the YSRC would launch a struggle. The Modi government announced Rs 50,000 crore assistance to Bihar. But the TDP government failed to get promised Central funds to the state, Botcha said. He refused to comment on  Rahul Gandhi’s remarks and said that he would leave it to the latter’s sense of judgement.
