SRIKAKULAM: Asserting that the entire State is celebrating Dasara alongside Aasara Utsavalu, Deputy Chief Minister Dharmana Krishna Das said that the opposition has been trying to mislead people with cheap politics.
Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, the minister said that people from all sections including women are being benefited from the government’s welfare schemes like never before in history. He said that it was fortunate to have YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as a Chief Minister who strives for the empowerment of women and thus promised to repay all the outstanding loans of Rs 25512 crore in four phases. So far, the government has credited almost over Rs 12000 crore in two phases and big scale celebrations of Aasara are taking place in all districts.
He said that the opposition leaders are unable to digest these good things and are playing cheap politics with false propaganda using their in-house media channels. People have witnessed good governance in the last 27 months and supported YSRCP in all elections giving a clear majority. As the TDP leaders have failed to impress the public in recent polls, they are moving with an agenda of blaming the government out of frustration due to a series of defeats, he said adding the opposition should act responsibly.
On this occasion, he lauded the Chief Minister for bringing reforms like establishing village and ward secretariats, Rythu Bharosa centres, English medium schools, new medical colleges and committing to social justice prioritising the weaker sections and strengthening them. He said that Chandrababu has turned Amaravati into a business model and emphasised that decentralisation is the need of the hour for easy governance.
