Ambati throws debate challenge to Harish Rao on welfare in Telugu states
Tadepalli, October 1: Responding to Telangana Finance Minister Harish Rao’s comments on government teachers in Andhra Pradesh, Minister for Water Resources Ambati Rambabu threw an open debate challenge to him on welfare and development in Telugu states.
Addressing the media here on Saturday, he said that the AP government has been implementing welfare schemes effectively with less revenue. “Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) and Harish Rao have no moral right to speak on AP,” he mentioned.
Referring to TDP national general secretary Nara Lokesh, Ambati said that no leader can become successful without people’s support in politics. “Fearing defeat, TDP chief and former Chief Minister Chandrababu made Lokesh as a minister by nominating him to the Legislative Council under MLAs’ quota,” he slammed.
The minister stated that Chandrababu will face defeat in Kuppam Assembly constituency in next Assembly elections. On Friday, AP Industries Minister Gudivada Amarnath and AP government advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy also faulted Harish remarks.
