Now a days it has become popular for politicians to twist their tongues on numerous occasions and when they find themselves in the dock, they blame media saying saying media and journalists misinterpreted their words even though what ever they said would be recorded on camera. They will even go to the extent of claiming that the videos are doctored. AP Govt functioning is quite pathetic as one gets the feeling whether it exists at all or not. Ministers wont cooperate with CM and each one pull the Govt in different directions. Even when policy decisions are taken, they dont implement them.
Long time back in one film Parachuri Gopalakrishna asks a media person to print one press note if it happens according to that way orelse another press release if it happens in the opposite manner. It seems even AP Govt is following same strategy as it issued two statements on Poverty and people below poverty line.
The Govt proudly claimed that the state stood first in implementing 20 point formula to eradicate poverty. This means that poverty is on decrease in the state. However the same Govt says that more than 95% people received white cards as they belong to BPL. When media asked this discrepancy 20 point program Chairaman Tulasireddy said both the stats are different in their own way.
