Hyderabad, Apr 1 (UNI) Alleging that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy had allocated a huge amount of 'public money' for his Assembly constituency Pulivendula and home district Kadapa, Telugu Desam Legislative Party (TDLP) deputy leader T Devender Goud today claimed that ''regional disparities have increased in the state under the present government.'' Participating in the discussion on the no-confidence motion moved by the TDP in the Assembly against the government, Mr Goud alleged that the Chief Minister was ''inciting regionalism'' among people.

The formation of Constitutional Authority, to study the development in the backward regions, was nothing but a fraud,'' he added.

Accusing the government of selling valuable lands in Telangana region and diverting the irrigation water from the backward Telangana to other regions, Mr Goud alleged that Dr Reddy had misused his powers in appointing University Vice-Chancellors.

Launching a scathing attack on Dr Reddy's government, the TDLP leader alleged that the Chief Minister had recruited ''his own people'' in Revenue and Police Departments in the city to complete the land deals and other works in favour of his family members.

Pointing out that the prices of essential commodities skyrocketed since the Congress came to power, Mr Goud alleged that the government did not take any steps to curb the price rise and take up the market intervention scheme as promised during 2004 Assembly elections.

The law and order situation was not under control as political murders and terrorist activities had increased, he said, adding that the government had not devolved powers to the local bodies as enshrined in the Constitution.

Stating that Dr Reddy had no right to continue in the office as he failed on all fronts, Mr Goud said he should go to the 'public court' immediately.
