Jagan’s letter came a day after the Chandrababu indirectly sought to imply that the YSRC leader declared an income of Rs 10,000 crore under an Income Declaration Scheme.
While Chandrababu wanted the Centre to “demonitise” the currency notes of Rs 500 & Rs 1000 denomination to “curb” proliferation of the parallel economy, Jagan wanted publication of “entire list of IDS-2016” & also initiate a thorough inquiry into corruption charges towards Chief Minister.
“Out of the Rs 65,000 crore were disclosed across a country, Rs 13,000 crore was declared in the Hyderabad, out of it, Rs 10,000 crore by a single individual.”
“Who is that we can’t? know as per law. Is it possible for a businessman to declare such large money,” he wondered yesterday, indirectly seeking to suggest it was the YSRC president.
Separately, a couple of ministers & Telugu Desam legislators directly named to Jagan as the one who made the Rs 10,000 crore disclosure, a charge lone opposition party stoutly denied.
“How is that Mr. Chandrababu Naidu alone is privy to this information? If true, then the person declared must have been a ‘Benami‘ of Chandrababu Naidu. Or else, how can he be so specific on the numbers,” the YSRC chief asked the Prime Minister in his letter.
“If this evidence is true, then we people of Andhra Pradesh must also be aware of this information. Henceforward, we request your office to kindly let us know as it is also the irony that AP under Naidu has been ranked as the most corrupt state in a country by NCAER (National Council for Applied Economic Research) just recently,” the Leader of Opposition said.
Chandrababu, on the other hand, praised Narendra Modi saying “the country is fortunate to have you as a Prime Minister at this opportune & inspiring time. Opportunity for transformational change arises rarely and even rarer when such opportunities are actually seized for the national transformation.”
Praising the Income Declaration Scheme, the Chief Minister said it has reportedly resulted in the pan-India declaration of undisclosed income exceeding to Rs 65,000 crore, implying a tax earning of Rs 30,000 crore.
