Minister Botsa lambasted TDP stating that it was creating hurdles in the government's attempts to develop the state.
TDP has no commitment towards the state. TDP does not want equal development of all regions of the state, that's why it is opposing the three capitals proposal.

Despite TDP creating all kinds of hurdles through legal cases, our government is working for achieving the welfare state, he added. (ANI)
