Jagan faces BJP’s criticism for using public money


Andhra Pradesh’s Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is left for Jerusalem, Israel on Thursday night and the state government's sanctioning of Rs 22, 52,500 towards security provision for the chief minister’s visit has sparked a row. 

Bharatiya Janata Party’s leader Lanka Dinakar slammed the chief minister for burdening the public resources for his private visit. He criticized the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) government for releasing Rs 22, 52,500 for the CM’s security during the four-day visit. He asked, “Why is public money being used for a private visit by the chief minister and his family?

The general administration department issued the order for releasing the amount to Triple S. Tours and Travels, Israel, to make the necessary security arrangements. Earlier, on July 26 an order was issued mentioning that the visit was purely personal and that the expenditure would be totally taken care of by Jagan. 

Under another order issued on the same day, the government granted permission to Sovaray Senthil Kumar, Superintendent of Police, to visit Jerusalem in advance and look after the security arrangements. In addition, A Joshi, Chief Security Officer to the Chief Minister, was also permitted to visit Israel along with Jagan to oversee the security arrangements and provide round the clock security.
