Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday said that any purchase which exceeds Rs 1 crore would be displayed on public domain for transparency and corruption-free governance.
During a review meeting, Reddy said that there have been scams in the previous government from school uniforms to automobiles but the current government will have to ensure that all deals are done in a fair and transparent manner, read an official statement.
"We have to stem the rot and guide the governance in a proper way which will be acceptable to all," Reddy stated.
