Chandrababu’s Anna Canteen Promotions Go Awry

Amaravati: Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi once said, "There are two kinds of people, those who do work and those who take credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there." It appears Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu certainly belongs to the second category. He is getting closer to being synonymous with Plagiarist: A man who takes credit for others' work.

Chandrababu has a history of taking credit for central government schemes. Recently, the TDP Chief faced an embarassing situation when he was questioned for promoting Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana in the name of Chandranna Bima. In a fresh controversy which set tongues wagging on social media, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government is caught up in an awfully ugly emabrassment over the much-hyped Anna Canteens.

On July 11, Chandrababu launched Anna Canteens, which offers food at a nominal rate of Rs 5 per plate, across the state.

Interestingly, the scheme had been floated long ago by a YSRCP leader in the name of Rajanna canteens. The popular canteen was an initiative of YSR Congress party MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy who has been succesfully running it ever since its launch in May 2017.

A recent government advertisement in newspapers and hoardingsreleased by the Information and Public Relations Department to promote Anna Canteens, a picture of Rajanna Canteens, shows two persons having lunch at the YSRCP MLA's canteen. This has left the Telugu Desam party red-faced.

Take a look at the pictures, which have currently gone viral on social media.

The highlighted picture was taken from YSR Congress party MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy’s official Facebook page:

This clearly exposes TDP's habitual offence of earning credit for somebody else's work to gain political mileage.

Back in 2016, Chandrababu inaugurated the Anna Canteen scheme, named after Telugu Desam Party founder, former chief minister NT Rama Rao. During the latest launch of 60 Anna Canteens last week at Vijayawada, Chandrababu's team used a picture from the YSRCP MLA's Rajanna canteen.
