Andhra Pradesh Politics are full of lively discussions on the Davos tour of the chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
Andhra Pradesh Opposition parties decry the government’s spending of more than Rs 10 crores for the tour, which they reject as just a cascade of publicity, since not even a single MoU will be signed.
On the social media platform, it is circulated that the World Economic Forum meet had not listed the name of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu among the speakers. He also mentioned that the state government had bought a pavilion at the meeting, and set up a vernacular show.
The communication advisor Parakala Prabhakar rejected all these allegations by saying that the Forum was a rare opportunity to meet all the bigwigs of the industrial world for which they had received an official invitation from the WEF. It is hoped that this will produce fruitful results in the future as the tour has been completed through the promotion of the Sunrise AP brand.
APCC Vice-President and former President Nadendla Manohar asked that the Chief Minister present a white paper to erase public allegations and doubts about the 5-day Davos tour. He also questioned the creation of the mega textile park Gherzi, worth 2,000 rupees, announced on the Davos tour in 2016.
On this Davos 2017 tour it was announced that Stadler, a Swiss automaker, was going to establish a unit in Vizag, but this was denied by Stadler who said that Vizag is a possible site that had been assessed. Mr. Manohar also said that the APCC asked for an explanation on the number of jobs offered and on the amount of investments that were paid to the State with Rs 40 crore spending devoted to the CII summit of 2016 and Of 8 rupees on the Davos tour, 2017.
YSRC MLA G Srikanth Reddy said the Davos tour is just a publicity shot by the chief minister and criticized him for spending his time in places for his own personal ends rather than concentrating On public issues, to attract foreign investment to the state.
Mr. Parakala Prabhakar issued an official press release indicating that the Chief Minister was not a special guest at the WEF and that his name was not on the list of speakers, was clearly false and was a false propaganda.
