Jagan government laid only 300 km roads in these two years. Rs 20,000 crore was proposed in the last three budgets. But how much is really spent?"
"We can proudly say that our TDP government had laid 25,000 km roads during Chandrababu Naidu regime. Further, 2,700 km roads were laid in villages for rural connectivity with Rs 6,500 crores expenditure under the Grameen Sadak Yojana scheme. Another 4,000 km roads were laid with AIIB funds. Further, 2,400 km roads were upgraded from the state level to national level roads. But what is achieved in two years rule of YSRCP?" asked the TDP leader. (ANI)
