Union minister for urban development M. Venkaiah Naidu alleged that heedless stalling of Parliament procedures by Congress is affecting the development of the country. Mr Venkaiah Naidu, while laying foundation stone for the AIIMS at Mangalagiri on Saturday, said that forceful stopping of passage of bills is equal to the stopping of country's development.
He used the function to explain the schemes and funds sanctioned by the Union government to AP. This included transfer of certain mandals in Telangana to AP for the smooth execution of Polavaram project, recent sanctioning of Rs 65,000 crores for road development. Mr Venkaiah Naidu claimed that he contacted Union health minister J.P. Nadda at least 20 times in connection with the sanctioning of AIIMS.
He said he was elected as MP from other state but is arduously working for the development of AP and Telangana to serve the Telugu community.He alleged that the main opposition party in AP is following the national opposition party in stopping developmental activities and hence the duo is creating ruckuses in the Parliament and Assembly to stop sessions.
