Amaravati: Looks like this is testing period for AP Tourism Minister, Bhuma Akhila Priya. The lady who had become subject of criticism when Naidu picked her for his Cabinet in spite of being a first-time MLA is now hounded by criticism from all corners since Boat Mishap incident yesterday.
The tragedy is a blot on her political career as well as future and though she was quick to respond to the situation, her explanation regarding how the tragedy happened are not accurate or rational.
Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu tried to do damage control and assured of thorough investigation and action would be taken on culprits and announced ex-gratia of 10 lakhs to families of deceased. But there are rumours that action would be taken against her as well. In fact Naidu has a great opportunity by controlling the wagging tongues of opposition if Akhila Priya resigns! Will she resign citing moral responsibility? Akhilpriya is mentally very tough. Remember after Nagireddy's death she had come to assembly to take down on YCP?
This is a different situation and case though. We will wait and see!
