YS Jagan Mohan reddy releasing Party Manifesto

Amaravati: Affirming that the party manifesto will turn a new leaf in the polity of the state, YSR Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the manifesto is not a classified document but should be kept for scrutiny in public domain and would serve as a yardstick for governance.

YS Jagan addressed the media here in the party office on Saturday after the release of party manifesto, which is a compilation of Navaratnas along with some other proposed schemes that were worked out during the Praja Sankalpa Yatra after interaction with thousands of people and the BC Declaration. He observed ‘credibility comes with the proper implementation of the manifesto unlike Chandrababu Naidu who had removed his 2014 manifesto from Party website as he had not implemented the 650 odd assurances made in it.

Our manifesto is a simple document spelling out the details that all sections would be getting and it will remain accessible to people. We will go to 2024 elections on the basis of the performance vis-a-vis our manifesto."

The YSRCP chief further remarked that the manifesto promises investment, insurance, interest free loans, digging of free borewells, nine hour free power supply to farmers, cold storage facilities, besides Market Stabilisation Fund and Natural Calamity Funds, giving priority to farmers.

Aarogyasri would be strengthened and all treatments exceeding Rs 1,000 would be brought under Aarogyasri and its purview will be extended to other cities as well.

For women, under Amma Vodi Rs 15,000 would be deposited in the mother’s account for send her to send two children to school and YSR Cheyutha will give Rs 75,000 to women over 45 years, while pension will be increased to Rs 3,000 and age will be reduced to 60 years from 65 years. YSR Aasara will clear all the loans of self help groups and the loan amount will be paid in four instalments directly to the women.

All projects taken up under Jalayagnam, including Polavaram, will be completed and housing would be provided to weaker sections by building 25 lakh houses.

While relentlessly fighting for Special Category Status (SCS), YS Jagan said that his party, if elected, will issue notification to fill the 2.3 lakh vacancies in government jobs and provide 75 % reservation for locals besides publishing employment calendar on January 1 every year. Administration will be decentralised with the setting up of Village Secretariats which will provide jobs locally and Navaratnas will be implemented effectively. Corporations will be set up for SC, STs, BCs and other castes for their welfare, he said.

The YSRCP chief also asserted that as promised prohibition will be implemented in three phases in the state.
