The other day, Andhra Pradesh Government has released a G.O. clearing payments to Private companies for the supply of chartered flights and private jets to various visits of the Chief Minister. The Government has sanctioned 32 Crore Rupees for a period of 18 months.
Realistically, the Chief Minister did not step out of Tadepalli Camp Office during the six months of the Pandemic which means this is more of an expense for twelve months. That comes for around three crore rupees per month. This is without a single foreign tour pitching for investments to the state.
More of these tours are of district tours for the launch of various schemes. While in Opposition, Jagan used to constantly criticize Chandrababu Naidu for wasting money on Private flights. But then, Chandrababu used to frequent to other countries with investment proposals.
On the other hand, TDP claims spending only an amount of 26 Crore between 2014-19 for Special Flights and at the same time bringing 2.5 Lakh Crore investments to the state including prestigious projects like Kia Motors, Hero, etc.
