Cini Hero, MLA hindupur Balakrishna has been severely criticised for sitting in the Chief Minister’s chair in the conference hall of the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) in the Velagapudi Secretariat on wed day.He was at Secretariat to review matters pertaining to his constituency of Hindupur and plan the Lepakshi celebrations. The meeting was attended by water resources minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao.
Generally, MLAs go to the chambers of various officials to discuss matters relating to developmental work in their constituencies. But Mr Balakrishna, who is related to the Chief Minister, told the officials to come to the CMO for the meeting and happily occupied the Chief Minister’s usual chair while the minister sat with the others.His behaviour has become the subject of much discussion in the Secretariat.
In the meeting, Mr Balakrishna directed officials to make the Lepakshi celebrations better than last year’s and instructed that cultural programmes should not be similar to last year’s. The CM will launch the programme on the first day, March 9, and Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu will attend the valedictory ceremony on March 10.
