Usually secret GOs are issued on matters of national security. On issues that have lot of sensitive angles, the Government uses the secret GO route. But, the Telugu Desam Government has taken the secret GO route hundreds of times. Under this method, the government does not make the GOs public and does not explain why and where the money is spent. Recently, the TDP Government recently issued another secret GO (GO No 608) worth Rs 576.62 crore. The reason for this expenditure has not been mentioned. The GO simply says the money is spent for confidential purpose .
It is strongly believed that the money is being spent for the welfare programmes promised during the Nandyal elections.
