CM Chandrababu Naidu keeps saying AP has been in crisis since bifurcation but he continues to splurge Tax Payers money for his comforts. It's like giving an opportunity for opponents and public to point fingers at him by resorting to unnecessary expenditure.



Bengaluru Mirror reported that Hotel Accommodation of AP CM when he arrived for the swearing-in ceremony of HD Kumaraswamy costed Rs 8.7 lakh. This came to light with an RTI Application seeking details of expenditure incurred for the accommodation of CMs and Former CMs who graced Karnataka CM's oath-taking ceremony.

Chandrababu checked-in at 9.49 am on May 23rd and checked-out at 5.34 am on May 24th. The hotel charged Rs 8,72,485 for AP CM's one day accommodation. Does AP CM really need to do this when his state is in crisis?

Former Karnataka CMs Yeddyurappa and Siddaramaiah hasn't wasted tax payer's money for their swearing-in ceremonies. Whereas, Kumaraswamy splurged a whooping Rs 42 lakh. Rs 4.35 lakh were spent for the tea party hosted at Vidhan Soudha on May 23rd. Tea and snacks were supplied by Taj West & Hotel for the occasion.
