MLA Jogi Ramesh criticised leader of opposition Chandrababu Naidu for making baseless allegations over the purchase of 104 & 108 ambulances by the State government.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, MLA Jogi Ramesh said that in the last five years, Chandrababu Naidu destroyed 108 and 104 ambulance services, which was a novel initiative brought by former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy. Lakhs of lives were saved through these ambulance services, but Naidu out of sheer jealousy ruined the system.
“As the ambulances were left in a dilapidated condition, the State government decided to procure 1060 new vehicles for running the 104 and 108 services. All these ambulances are being equipped with advanced life support systems and proper medical care.
The procurement was done in a most transparent way, which further went through a judicial preview. While Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy is working hard to restore the quality of the services, Naidu along with his party members are making false allegations of corruption. He should be ashamed of making such baseless allegations against the government through the media.” he added.
