Minister Nara Lokesh made an emotional speech at Telugu Desam Party (TDP), 2nd day of Mahanadu 2018, today. He showed how the YSRCP and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders were making false statements. They have sent letters to the Centre urging to stop funding National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS), in Andhra Pradesh (AP). Yet the State government is continuing to implement the scheme for the benefit of the rural masses. Lokesh said that the state government is also spending a lot on drinking water schemes.
