‘Joint action plan with Left parties to fight exploitative rule’

Jana Sena Party (JSP) president Pawan Kalyan has expressed his displeasure at what he called the “hostile business environment” prevailing in Andhra Pradesh, and held some TDP leaders responsible for it.

He cited the steel plant proposed to be established in Kadapa district as an instance of how leaders of the ruling party were allegedly interfering in the projects and allowing only those beneficial for them.

Corruption

Addressing the media after meeting CPI (M) and CPI leaders P. Madhu and K. Ramakrishna here on Sunday, Mr. Pawan Kalyan recalled that the cross-section of people whom he had met in London was taken aback at the level of corruption in the implementation of various projects in the State.

He quoted his sources as saying that the Jindal Group had submitted a concrete proposal to set up the steel plant in Kadapa district, but the TDP leaders were against it because they felt it was useless for them. “They are now demanding that the Central government should keep its word,” the JSP leader said. He said the TDP leaders would not let the projects move forward unless they receive “cuts,” and the situation was such that the entrepreneurs were actually scared of investing in the State, contrary to the tall claims being made by the government. The JSP chief said the expectations of clean governance were belied by the TDP government and that he was working on a joint action plan with the Left parties and other like-minded outfits to fight against exploitative rule.
