CM Chandrababu has history of taking credit for central government schemes

4months ago -

As per report recently, the TDP Chief faced an embarrassing situation when he was questioned for promoting Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana in the name of Chandranna Bima. In a fresh controversy which set tongues wagging on social media, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government is caught up in an awfully ugly embarrassment over the much hyped Anna Canteens. Previously on July 11, Chandrababu launched Anna Canteens, which offers food at a nominal rate of Rs 5 per plate, across the state.

Accordingly the scheme had been floated long ago by an YSRCP leader in the name of Rajanna canteens. Meanwhile the popular canteen was an initiative of YSR Congress party MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy who has been successfully running it ever since its launch in May 2017. Furthermore a recent government advertisement in newspapers and hoardings released by the Information and Public Relations Department to promote Anna Canteens, a picture of Rajanna Canteens, shows two persons having lunch at the YSRCP MLA's canteen.

Moreover this has left the Telugu Desam party red faced. Earlier in 2016, Chandrababu inaugurated the Anna Canteen scheme, named after Telugu Desam Party founder, former chief minister NT Rama Rao. Further during the latest launch of 60 Anna Canteens last week at Vijayawada, Chandrababu's team used a picture from the YSRCP MLA's Rajanna canteen.
