During the press meet through a video call, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, said the State Government could not hide facts about the disease and the situation in A.P.

Demanding complete transparency of the facts and figures, Chandrababu Naidu said, “Why does not the Government give testing details of COVID -19 in the State. Collectors are not allowing doctors to reveal the details, this is unethical and harmful to the society.”
Explaining the plight of the farmers in the State, Naidu demanded the state government to utilize the Market Stabilisation Fund to purchase the produce including paddy, banana, papaya, mango, guava, fish and other products.
Stating the increased numbers of A.P., COVID-19 cases as a dangerous alarm, Mr. Naidu criticised Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of A.P., for his negligence towards the situation.
