New Delhi: The issue of caste census dominated the Lok Sabha elections 2024. Opposition parties are constantly demanding caste census from the Center. Meanwhile, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, who is part of the Narendra Modi government at the Center, has taken a different step. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has decided to start skill census in the state. He has also planned to give suggestions to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard. The TDP president wants the skills possessed by the country's population to be explored and people should get the benefit of it.

Naidu's emphasis is on skill survey, not caste census

The parties in the All India Alliance want to conduct a caste census, but Chandrababu Naidu said that his aim is to expand the PPP model i.e. 'Public, Private, People's Partnership'. He wants better results for the citizens. The Modi government is focusing on skill development and employment generation and some measures are expected in the Union Budget. The TDP chief said that the previous Jagan Mohan Reddy government of Andhra Pradesh has left the state in severe financial crisis. In such a situation, as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, the development of the state is his top priority.

We are going to start skill census in Andhra Pradesh!

Chandrababu Naidu says that though the development of Andhra Pradesh had stopped due to the previous government, now he does not want to compromise in the development of the state. This is why stopping the Polavaran irrigation project and making Amaravati the new capital of the state are included in his plan. He will do this by bringing a series of five white papers on the development of the state. Naidu has also held several meetings in Delhi regarding the development of the state.

Andhra CM told why this demand was made

Andhra Pradesh CM Naidu said he will let the people decide what to do. He wants to use his past experience to bring Andhra back on the path of development and attract investors, both domestic and foreign. Apart from the Union ministers, the Andhra CM also met several industry leaders and acknowledged that there are concerns about the political atmosphere in the event of a change of power in the state. He also stressed that his party is not demanding any seats or a common agenda. This is because the BJP and NDA alliance partners have released their respective manifestos.

Development of Andhra is our aim: Naidu

Chandrababu Naidu said that we did not ask for any ministerial post from the Centre, not even during Atal Bihari Vajpayee's time. Whatever was offered, we accepted. He recalled accepting the post of Lok Sabha Speaker during the Vajpayee era. He said this was done to maintain good relations in the alliance. He said that the party's priority is to rebuild Andhra Pradesh, which has suffered irreparable damage in the last five years. Our aim is to rebuild the state in the next five years. The people of Andhra Pradesh have given the mandate to the NDA. We will work together. Quota for minorities is an issue that was flagged as a concern by Prime Minister Modi during the general elections. Chandrababu Naidu said that his party used economic backwardness to give reservation and not other considerations.
