Amaravati, Sep (IANS) The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on Friday launched a website to educate the people about the "facts" on the Skill Development Corporation project in the wake of its leader and former chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s arrest.

One can easily understand as to how Chandrababu Naidu perfectly designed the project to take the youth to greater heights, he said adding that the details on the state government's false propaganda also is available in detail on the website.

All the details, with proper evidence, are available on the website and the party wants to bring all such facts before people, he said.
Details beginning with the need to go for setting up the Skill Development project to how it was implemented and how many persons got benefitted are available, he added.

In Gujaratm the project came into existence in 2014, in Jharkhand in 2016, and in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in 2017. The details on how these states have implemented the project are also available in the public domain, he said, adding that the Jagan Reddy government too praised the implementation of this project.
While the project was implemented during the TDP regime, the award given for the state was received by this YSRPC government, Atchennaidu stated.
Even advertisements were given in the print media and in other forums with the photo of the Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, taking the whole credit for the success of the project, he observed.
"Still, we never responded on the publicity as we are happy that the youth have a better future with this project," he remarked.
