Vastavam web: BJP State president Somu Veerraju said that the Pilgrimage Rejuvenation and Spirituality Augmentation Drive encourages the protection of Indian culture and tradition. During his maiden visit to Visakhapatnam after taking charge as BJP State president, he said “Money under the PRASAD scheme should be utilised for the preservation of our culture and tradition and not for ‘constructing buildings’. In future, Annavaram Devasthanam will also be included in the scheme and get sufficient funds,” Somu Veerraju stated.
Previously, he said, Bandaru Dattatreya, when he was the Union Minister, ordered construction of a medical college and a hospital for the benefit of the employees. “But the previous government as well as the present government did not respond positively to the proposal. TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu should reveal what he had developed by spending Rs 7,000 crore in Amaravati, Somu Veerraju said. “The previous government sold the shift operator jobs and the present government is following suit. In future, BJP will emerge as a very strong party in AP,” he added.
