Hyderabad, Oct 8 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today took great exception to the allegations of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was ''earning Rs one crore per hour.'' Addressing a press conference here, APCC in-charge President G S Rao said Mr Naidu was making allegations against the Chief Minister in ''frustration''. He asked Mr Naidu to stop levelling ''wild allegations'' against his political opponents.

Party official spokesperson N Tulasi Reddy alleged that Mr Naidu had sold all his assigned lands and made money, whereas the Mr Reddy had given his lands to the government.

He said the government was functioning in a transparent manner and it was evident from the fact that 'Transparency International', an international vigilance agency, in its survey listed Andhra Pradesh at the fourth place among minimum corrupt states.

The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) also refuted Mr Naidu's charges, alleging that the former Chief Minister had ''lost his mental balance''.

Addressing a separate press conference, Government Chief whip N Kiran Kumar Reddy and other MLAs alleged that Mr Naidu's attitude was only to earn money whether in power or out of power. He asked Mr Naidu to change his mindset and stop making baseless allegations.
