Hyderabad, Jul 3 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh Congress Legislature Party (CLP) today ridiculed the remarks of Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu that the two-day District Collectors' conference, had become a 'political conference'.
Addressing a press conference here, State Finance Minister K Rosaiah said it was strange that the Former Chief Minister was ''disrespecting'' the collectors' conference, which commenced here yesterday, though he had ruled the state for nine years.
Stating that the Conference was meant for the development of the state, he said it was necessary to conduct such meetings periodically to discuss the progress on various developmental activities taken up in the state.
He said various issues, including health, education, irrigation, housing scheme, Aarogya Sree Health Insurance and distribution of pensions, were discussed in the meeting.
Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy asked the collectors to speed up the implementation of the developmental schemes as per schedule for the benefit of the people, he further added.
