On December 24th, 2020, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has visited his Pulivendula constituency for Christmas and announced constructing a state-of-the-art bus stand on 12 acres spending 35 Crores.
Almost after seventeen months, the bus stand is not completed. By liberal estimates, the bus stand will be ready only in 2023.
There are pictures in the media of how passengers are standing in sun waiting for buses because of this.
These pictures have gone viral on social media shaming the ruling party.
People are ridiculing the fact that Jagan could not execute a bus stand in his native but criticized Chandrababu Naidu for not finishing the ambitious capital project in five years.
Some even go to the extent of saying – “The Government has asked the high court 60 months time to finish the Amaravati project. Forget about 60 months, if we consider the pace of this bus stand, he can not even finish it is in 6000 months”.
Pulivendula is the stronghold of the YS family since 1978. The family has represented the constituency in every election that happened since then (thirteen elections).
Even then, we are discussing the people of the constituency having no bus stand.
