It is quite good to conduct national sports in our state. Chandrababu Naidu done a good job by constructing different stadiums in our state. But he must implement tickets and he must give rights to private channels also. And he must try to recover the money which he spent for the stadias.

Chandra Babu need to concentrate on Freeways/Ring roads in Andhra Pradesh for every town/city. He is dynamic leader and the Congress (specially in AP) is going to lose onceagain due to BAD Politicians (Like YS Rowdy)....
