Hyderabad: Senior YSRCP leader Anam Ramanarayana Reddy criticised Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu's statements about renaming Tirupati as Silicon city, building the iron factory at Kadapa and various other issues .
Speaking to the media on Sunday, Ramanarayana Reddy said that for the past four years Chandrababu or his 20 MPs could do nothing for the AP Special Status. Now his claims that if people vote for TDP for the 25 seats in the coming Lok Sabha elections, they would be able to achieve special status are empty promises, Anam said. He has been unable to fulfill any of the promises made in the last elections. Trying to brag that he would fulfill them with 25 MP seats is totally absurd he said .
What does he mean by saying that the state government will go ahead and build an indigenous steel plant in Kadapa , the YSRCP leader questioned. The Union government has agreed to build the Kadapa steel plant. Chandrababu, by resorting to such gimmicks, is only fooling the people of Rayalaseema. In the process, he is turning the local TDP MPs into real estate developers for him and their own profits, he said.
Chandrababu claims that EVMs were tampered in Telangana , but why hasn't he questioned the role of EVMS in the other three states he asked. He knows for sure that the TDP will lose in the upcoming elections in 2019 , he declared.
"Chandrababu claims that he will make Amaravati the next Singapore , but what has happened over the past four years", he questioned. Now he claims that he will make Tirupati the next Silicon City. How can anyone rename the holy Temple Town as a Silicon city? It goes against the grain of Hindu sentiments and Chandrababu knows the effects of hurting traditions when he tried to demolish the thousand- pillared Mandap on the hills , he reminded.
nam said "Chandrababu claims if 25 TDP MPs were to win the upcoming general elections then it would fetch AP the Special Category Status, but TDP has won 17 seats in the last election and has lured three others MPs to switch over to TDP making it 20. However, nothing concrete has happened in the past four and a half years on proper implementation of the state Reorganisation Act. He added that Chandrababu is once again trying to cheat the people of AP, this time under a new garb.
The senior YSRCP leader questioned Chandrababu over the steel plant which is coming up in YSR Kadapa district. He said, "when the government is not able to carry out the welfare schemes like fee reimbursement, Aarogyasri, and fuel costs incurred by 108 ambulances, how are they going to fund a steel plant which will cost thousands of crores ? he added while pointing out that the Union government has already expressed its interest to build the plant.
Ramanarayana Reddy revealed that Chandrababu and the local MP have bought huge amounts of land in that area. They want to promote real estate and pocket that money.
The leader also opened up about the Duggarajapatnam port, which was objected to by the Union government . Later Chandrababu proposed an industrial corridor to the Centre.
YSRCP leader called the white papers going to be issued by the state government over the development in the state as good for nothing papers. In the past too Chandrababu has released white papers, which went unrecognized. These white papers are very far from reality. He has not fulfilled at least one assurance of 600 given before the 2014 elections. He started all these whitepapers are issued to manipulate the common people. In the past, late Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy issued black papers to counter these white papers.
The leader said YSRCP is coming up with black papers to counter the white papers. He added that the party would prove that white papers released by TDP are bogus papers.
Revanth Reddy in Telangana and Kiran Kumar Reddy are Chandrababu's covert agents he pointed out . Kiran Kumar is in no position to criticise YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Chandrababu using these two as covert agents is only trying to hurt Rahul Gandhi's political ambitions, he concluded .
