State sidelining Opposition MLAs in schemes: AICC.
Vijayawada: The AP Cabinet scheduled to meet here on Friday is expected to discuss the fate of institutions that fall under the Schedule 10 of the AP Reorganisation Act, apart from the issues like Krishna waters dispute with Telangana and the bifurcation of the High Court.
The Cabinet will also discuss the impact of distribution of reconstituted plots in the Amaravati capital area, arrangements for the Krishna pushkaralu and the controversy over transfers in various departments. Sources said Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had shortlisted these issues in view of their importance.
Mr Naidu and his team are expected to draw up a consolidated action plan on how to protect the interests of the state in relation to Schedule 10.
Some clarity has come over the distribution of assets in these institutions, sources said and added that the government was concentrating on pressing its claim over funds and assets of key institutions like Dr MCR Human Resources Development Institute, Dr NTR Health University, Andhra Pradesh Police Academy and a few research and educational institutions.
Accordingly, senior ministers have reportedly prepared the drafts.
It is learnt that Mr Naidu briefed the ministers one on one on drawing up the drafts, sources. A minister said Mr Naidu set out one one target – “AP shouldn’t lose single rupee”.
Despite this, it is learnt that a few ministers were disappointed with directions from the CMO that were less than clear on many issues, which may be one of the points of discussion in Friday’s Cabinet meeting.
Mr Naidu is likely to guide the ministers to underscore the importance of propagating the government’s welfare schemes from the grassroot level. He may also brief the Cabinet on his recent visit to China.
