The government has not released the dues to Vijayawada Municipal Corporation. The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) is unable to pay salaries to employees also.

Earlier, he interacted with students of NRI Academy on the outskirts of the city. When a student asked about Samaikyandhra, he said: “It is not in my hands.” Taking the discussion another student questioned on Telagnana state. Reacting to it, Mr. Naidu said, “Let’s not discuss it. This is not right time and forum.” To a question on education of OCs, he said his government would provide reservations to forward caste also, he said.

The TDP would extend fee reimbursement and scholarships to every student. The government would provide job or employment to every educated person.

The government would provide unemployment pension based on the educational qualifications until he or she got a job, he added. Mylavaram MLA and TDP district president Devineni Umamaheswara Rao, TDP urban president Vallabhaneni Vamsi, TDP leaders Bonda Umamaheswara Rao, Kesineni Srinivas, Panchumarthi Anurdha and others were present.
