AP Politics have taken a violent turn with Konaseema district name change issue. AP Government announced that Konaseema district will be renamed as Dr. Ambedkar district and people of the district have started agitations against the government’s decision.
AP CM YS Jagan is in Davos attending World Economic Forum and before his departure to the forum, he gave go ahead to this change. Pawan Kalyan conducted a press meet after Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, AP Government consultant, talked to press and alleged that TDP, Janasena doctored the agitations.
Pawan Kalyan in his press meet blasted against YSRCP Government and alleged that Government has doctored the attacks. He expressed doubts about foul play in Government giving thirty days time period for public to denote their apprehensions, if any, on the name change decision.
He alleged that Government planned to use BC, SC, ST votes by putting up Dr. B.R Ambedkar’s name to the district and they don’t have any love or respect towards the great man. If they had, why couldn’t they change name of another district or even put Ambedkar’s name to welfare schemes. He questioned government about using YSR or YS Jagan name to all the schemes, why not Potti Sriramulu or Ambedkar or Vireshalingam Panthulu names to the districts.
“People of Amalapuram understood the malicious intention behind such a decision and hence they are agitating. Even Government wanted the same, some issue to divert attention from existing issues like lack of electricity, farmer suicides, inflation and many more,” claimed Pawan Kalyan in his press meet.
