The Andhra Pradesh health minister Kamineni Srinivas is reportedly unhappy with private firm GVK for not showing any favourable response to paint the great actor and former CM N T Rama Rao’s picture on AP’s 108 emergency vehicles. It is known that recently AP Cabinet altered name of the Rajiv Aarogyasri scheme to NTR Vaidyaseva.
Kamineni Srinivas reportedly told GVK representatives that until now 108 ambulances only display state government emblem. He added that since now government has named this scheme as NTR Vaidyaseva, NTR’s picture should be painted on all the 108 ambulances. Sources say that GVK representatives haven’t responded favourably to the minister’s suggestion.
This is even after saying that state government would bear 95 percent of the total expenditure and GVK might have to bear five percent. Mr Srinivas also reportedly proposed that if the GVK does not agree for NTR’s picture on the 108 vehicles, the agency might have to be changed or the expenses should be equally divided between the government and GVK.
