Lok Sabha MP Kothapalli Geetha

New Delhi: Kothapalli Geetha, a Lok Sabha member from Andhra Pradesh, on Tuesday accused the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) of ‘misguiding’ people of the State on Budget allocations and said it was blaming the BJP-led Centre to conceal its inefficiency.

The Araku MP, who claimed to have ‘severed ties’ with her YSR Congress Party, also took a dig at it for ‘playing politics’ over the issue.

“TDP has been misguiding people saying the Centre has not allocated enough resources and that is why they were not able to do well. But all the programmes taken up by the State or TDP has been done with Central assistance,” Geetha said.

“YSRC is demanding a special status for the State, which is a closed subject, and playing politics,” she said.

On Tuesday, she wrote to several Union Ministers seeking accurate information on allocations made to the State so far and has also sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervention to fast-track the process.

“I feel it is my responsibility to convey facts and figures to people of Andhra Pradesh, so that they will not get carried away by false propaganda,” Geetha told in the letter to the Prime Minister seeking his intervention.

On TDP’s protest inside Parliament, she said, ‘It is nuisance what they are doing.’
