Chandrababu questioned bankers regarding the empty ATMs and cash crunch in the state. He condemned the Centre's policy and poor regulation by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for this. The Centre has failed to encourage digital banking, he said. Talking about monthly pensions, he said that it is not necessary for him to keep asking bankers every month for keeping the cash ready to distribute the pensions. But the situation is such that he is forced to keep tabs on these things, because of the failure of the Central system.
