Fight Between Ministers Ghanta, Ayyanna With No Holds Barred

Visakhapatnam: The rift between the two Ministers in the district came to the fore once again on Wednesday with the Minister for Human Resources Ganta Srinivasa Rao dashing a letter to the Telugu Desam chief N. Chandrababu Naidu over the ‘diminishing’ image of the party by the statements of his Cabinet colleague Ch. Ayyannapatrudu on the recent land scam in Visakhapatnam.

Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao, while appreciating the efforts being put in by the CM in making the city an economic capital, IT hub and a smart city post bifurcation, tried to impress upon him that this image of the city is marred by Ayyanna’s public announcements that land scams occurred in the district and some of TDP leaders were involved in those scams.

Trying to drive his point home, he said such statements from his colleague would have a bearing on their party as well. He reminded the CM of ‘baseless’ statements made by Ayyanna during Visakha Utsav and other times. Opposition leaders were taking advantage of the situation, he felt. “CPI, CPM leaders, YSRCP leader Botcha Satyanarayana, BJP leader Purandheswari are creating mistrust among the people over us by getting at us regularly basing on these baseless allegations,” he complained. He urged the CM and the party chief to order an investigation by one of the independent agencies such as CBI, CBCID or by a sitting judge.

It is a widely known fact that Ganta Srinivasa Rao and Ch. Ayyannapatrudu have been vying with each other for an upper hand over the party and the administration. Ayyaannapatrudu had the party supremo known his dissent over the re-induction of Ganta Srinivasa Rao into the party during the last elections at a public meeting. Lately, Ayyanna remarked that the migrants not only became politicians but also land grabbers in the district, making a veiled reference to Ganta Srinivasa Rao.

Ganta’s letter assumed significance at a time when rumours are doing rounds that Ganta’s close aide was involved in the land scam in which records concerning lands worth about ₹ 2000 crore were tampered with allegedly by revenue staff in Kommadi, Madhurawada and Bheemili. The Deputy CM KE Krishna Murthy said in Amaravati on June 12 that the CM ordered a Special Investigation Team to probe into the alleged scam.

AP EAMCET on May 10

HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh government here on Wednesday took a decision to conduct its own EAMCET-2015 on May 10.

Speaking to mediapersons at Visakhapatnam, AP Human Resources Development Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao said the State government has decided to conduct the EAMCET examination on its own. About 1.65 lakh students would take the examination, he said and added that JNTUC at Kakinada had been authorized to conduct the examination. About 1.16 lakh seats would available be in the convener quota, he added.

Criticizing the Telangana Government for defying provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act relating to a common entrance examination, he said this had forced the Andhra Pradesh Government to announce a separate EAMCET 2015 on May 10. He also announced that ECET would be conducted on May 14, ICET on May 16, PG ECET on May 25, EDCET on May 28 and Law CET – PG CET on May 30.

As the two States will be conducting the entrance examinations separately, for the first time the students seeking admission into engineering, agriculture and medical colleges have to appear for two separate tests. While JNTU-Hyderabad will continue to hold the exam in Telangana State, JNTU-Kakinada will conduct it in Andhra Pradesh. (NSS)
