Petrol price would soon touch 100: Chandrababu Naidu

Vastavam web: Criticising the Narendra Modi-led government for the continuous rise in fuel prices, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu opined that soon, petrol would be sold at Rs. 100 per litre. In the wake of the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) report on demonetisation, Naidu said the Centre was unable to “properly manage demonetisation.”

“What have we achieved from demonetisation? We are seeing the condition of banks today. Big notes should be abolished. What is the need for having Rs 2000 note? The Modi government could not properly manage demonetisation. I have no problem if digital currency comes fully into existence, but there needs to be proper balancing between digital and physical currency,” he said.Modi is not disciplined, it is inability. Even today, cash shortage is prevailing in ATMs. Nation’s growth rate came down after NDA came into power.

With regards to schemes and measures implemented during his tenure as Chief Minister, Naidu said that efforts were channelised towards increasing the earthen water table. This year almost 2000 TMC of Godavari water flew into the sea. Projects on Krishna river Srirsailam and Nagarjuna Sagar are fully filled up. 12 projects are ready for inauguration in September. We will inaugurate three projects in October and one in November.
