Flaying BJP for creating unrest in the State, the Minister said that the current government has been providing transparent governance irrespective of caste, religion, while ensuring that all the eligible people receive welfare initiatives. He stated that the opposition leaders have been trying to create chaos in Gudivada in the name of a casino and said that the government is already investigating the case.
