Challenges welcome Chandrababu Naidu as the Chief Minister of Navyandhra Pradesh
June 8, 2014 - Hyderabad
Telugu Desam Party president Nara Chandrababu Naidu who was asked by the people to stay in Opposition for a decade earlier welcomed him to run the government and is being greeted with a number of challenges ahead.
The first and foremost one that awaits Chandrababu Naidu is the selection of his Cabinet. Any failure in striking a balance could leave a section of leaders unhappy could eventually become an irritant for him to run the government from smooth sailing. In the course of the process, he is tasked with accommodating MLAs from his allay, the BJP giving them appropriate, if not key portfolios.
The second one await is the construction of a State capital and in the words of Chandrababu Naidu, being building the new State from scratch, identifying an ideal location for its capital and putting in place infrastructure. The Chief Minister designate could some extent control the real estate market that is riding high expectations by keeping his camp office on the Krishna-Guntur boarder keeping them at guess over the exact place of location of the State Capital.
The main opposition is already started its business of putting pressure on TDP government on the loan waiver scheme which the TDP came to power with this announcement. Chandrababu Naidu to keep his promise has to waive farm and DWACRA loans to nearly RS.70,000 crore at a time when he has to begin his journey with a negative/deficit budge of over 10,000 crore. It all expected that he would put his first signature on Sunday evening after he took reins of the State.
The main Opposition:
A big challenge waits in the form of an Opposition in the State that what the leaders demand him to fulfil his promises made to the people. The YSRCP Political affairs committee member Konathala Ramakrishna said ' why should we oppose the government if it is committed to implement the promises it made in the manifesto? We are clear on playing the role of a constructive Opposition as it is the need of the hour for the State that has to be built from scratch'. He further added that Chandrababu Naidu had a reputation of not keeping his promises. We are bound to take the people's side the moment the government goes back on its promises', he said.
