Taking strong objection to TDP meting out a raw deal to BCs in the recent Union Cabinet expansion, YSR Congress has said Chandrababu Naidu has always been ignoring the weaker sections and has been pampering the elite class.
“Sending the name of Sujana Chowdhary for a berth in the union cabinet once again proves that TDP always favours rich and elite over the weaker sections as the first name it has proposed was that of P Ashok Gajapathi Raju. Once again BCs got a raw deal and TDP seems to have changed the nomenclature of BCs to Business Class,” Party leader Dharmana Krishna Das told reporters in Hyderabad on Monday.
There was lot of hope among BCs that there would be a representation in the Union Cabinet but their aspirations were shattered with the mercantile policy of Chandrababu Naidu.
“Media that is friendly to TDP itself has published stories in the past about Sujana Chowdhary and his antics in entrepreneurship. He was described as a tax defaulter and there were stories about the fraud he was involved in some import deals and that he was the Chandrababu Naidu’s proxy in Delhi and at the Centre.
“If a man with such dubious qualities gets a berth in the union cabinet, BCs are very disappointed and unhappy with the choice of TDP,” he said.
Chandrababu Naidu has always been pursuing the anti-BC policy which is clear with the two nominations to the union cabinet. Of the 21 members sent to Rajya Sabha only four or five are BCs. Even in allotting the winning seats to BCs during assembly elections, TDP has lagged behind, he said.
It was only during the term of YSR that BCs have immensely benefitted through his welfare schemes and due representation at all forums. Now the BCs are looking towards YSRCP as they are fed up with the policies of the TDP, he said.
