Praja Rajyam Party president K Chiranjeevi on Wednesday demanded that the government release a White Paper on all the allotments of lands by the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation in the wake of allegations of irregularities being made over the deals.
Talking to media persons after on the second day of his Praja Chaitanya Yatra in Srikakulam, the actor-turned-politician alleged that the government has failed ‘totally’ to curb the irregularities in the APIIC.
Mr Chiranjeevi urged the government to order a probe into the entire issue so that the public knows the facts about the goings on in the APIIC.
Mr Chiranjeevi also cautioned the government to be wary of the people’s anger. He said that the people would rise against the government if it did not initiate measures to check dubious deals and stem corruption. The PRP chief also demanded that the government take steps to protect public wealth and properties from encroachers.
The PRP chief also demanded a White Paper on the sanctioning of mining permits to influential people, in violation of environmental laws and established norms.
Without naming anyone, Mr Chiranjeevi said that the government should probe the dubious amassing of wealth by some leaders.
The PRP chief reiterated his party’s commitment to fight against corruption and irregularities and warned that it would intensify its agitations over the APIIC, mining permits and hoarding of wealth by some leaders.
Despite attacks on Andhra leaders, Chiranjeevi reiterated that the PRP would launch Praja Chaitanya yatra in Telangana region also. The yatra dates would be announced soon, he stated.
Reacting on the attack of Opposition leader N Chandrababu Naidu’s convoy in Rangareddy district, the PRP leader saw a conspiracy behind the attack and termed it as unwarranted.
