WEST GODAVARI: Andhra Pradesh Women and Child Welfare Minister Taneti Vanitha lashed out at Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP for neglecting the welfare of women during its term and criticising the present government which has empowered women by various schemes introduced by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, the Minister said DWACRA women should question Naidu as to why he cheated them. She questioned the TDP on the development of women in their governance and added that women are being given priority in all schemes by the present government.
She said the State has distributed house pattas to 31 lakh women and the foundation stone was laid for construction of 15.60 lakh houses and recalled the corruption of TDP leaders and how people used to suffer to get houses during the previous government. She said Naidu has cheated DWACRA women by not waiving their loans and imposing more interest and flayed TDP women leaders for forgetting those unfulfilled promises and criticising the present government.
The Minister said it was Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy who has bought in the Disha Act and established 13 police stations for the safety and security of women and questioned Naidu what he has done for the safety of women during his term. She recalled the welfare schemes introduced by the Chief Minister including Amma Vodi, YSR Cheyutha, YSR Aasara and others for the welfare of the women in the state and said women are very happy in the governance of the Chief Minister.
