Home Minister Mekathoti Sucharitha has lambasted the former Chief Minister and TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu for claiming that the previous government has addressed the plight of AgriGold victims, and added that it was a well known fact that the senior TDP leaders tried hard to acquire AgriGold properties at nominal prices.

“The victims of AgriGold are happy as Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has fulfilled his promise made during Praja sankalpa yatra and released ₹264 crore for the victims who had deposited up to ₹10,000. The YSRCP government has shown its sincerity through allocations for this purpose in its first budget itself,” said the Minister.

Lashing out at Mr. Naidu for criticising government officials and making derogatory comments on Director-General of the Police, the Minister said the National Human Rights Commission submitted its report saying that there was no such a situation there. Without considering the NHRC report, Mr. Naidu was claiming that the cases were being filed against TDP cadre which was completely false, said the Minister.

She criticised Mr. Naidu for his derogatory remarks against the Chief Minister, which, she claimed, was a clear indication that he lost his mental balance.
