Assuring that YSRCP will continue all the welfare schemes of YSR in addition to the five poll assurances, the party Honorary President YS Vijayamma has said, TDP is making empty promises and it has no track record of keeping up the word given to the people.
“I appeal you to vote for YSRCP fan symbol in the ensuing multiple elections. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will continue all the welfare schemes of YSR and will fulfill the five election promises as he has inherited from his father, the quality of sticking to the word.
TDP on the other hand has never fulfilled any of the promises and N Chandrababu Naidu has been a known opportunist who changes tunes according to the situation. His priorities are different and his agenda is hidden which is to benefit his chosen few at the cost of the welfare of the people of the state,” she said while addressing a meeting as part of the YSR Praja Garjana here on Friday.
Placing the contrast between the governance of TDP and YSR, she has given a clear picture to the audience on how Chandrababu Naidu has pushed the state into darkness during his nine year term and how YSR has put the economy back on the development track and made all sections of the people happy by his welfare schemes including Aarogyasri, fees reimbursement, pavala vaddi, old age pension, housing, ration cards, Jalayaganam among others.
Naidu, who has shut down profit making industries in the name of disinvestments, is now promising one job to each family. When he speaks of such poll promises, he has no basis and no coherence. He has closed down 54 industries and rendered many workers jobless. He is talking of loan waiver to farmers without knowing the arithmetic. The quantum of loan is more than the state budget and loan waiver should be done on a national scale by the Central government and not the State Government.
He has been on the prowl with such false promises and I caution you not to take the bait and fall prey to his sly talk and impracticable sops. He boasts of being the kingmaker and played an important role at Centre. If that is so, why did he not bring in a major industry or project during his nine-year term? He could not even stop the neighbouring states from building dams and improvising the existing ones.
Never did he waive loans, nor even wrote a letter to the Centre on the subject. His only agenda was to help out his close circle of industrialists in all aspects and had shown no concern for the poor and farmers.
He stakes claim of developing Hyderabad for the international airport, Outer Ring Road and Express Highway which were actually done by YSR. What he did was to build two
buildings in the name of HiTech City and impose a tax burden of 55,000 crores on the people.
His claim of turning Hyderabad into an IT hub is totally false. On the contrary, the IT exports declined and the city fell from third to fifth place. While the IT exports during TDP were 9 % of the revenue, it has increased to 14 % after YSR took over as CM. If history permits, Naidu is capable of staking claim for building all the monuments of the city, she said.
He worked as a World Bank agent and his policies were harsh towards people, who kept him at bay from two consecutive terms. YSR was favoured by the people as his welfare schemes touched all sections of the people.
The Kiran Kumar Reddy government has shelved or diluted all welfare schemes of the YSR and the state went back to the pathetic times of Chandrababu Naidu term with steep hike power charges, increase in bus fares and other utilities besides essential commodities.
He has given a route map for the division of the state and helped the high command at every stage in the division process. Congress, TDP and BJP have ganged up and split the state. Sonia Gandhi, Sushma Swaraj and Chandrababu Naidu have an equal part in the division and they are coming to seek votes.
I appeal you to reject the divisive and opportunist forces and vote for YSRCP fan symbol in the municipal, manda, zilla parishad, assembly and Lok Sabha elections and strengthen the hands of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy who is committed to put the state on the fast track of development.
Besides YSR welfare schemes, he has promised to take care of the children’s education, enhance the old age pension to Rs 700, set up Market Stabilisation Fund to help farmers get a good price for their produce, waiving of DWACRA loans and taking governance to the doorsteps of the poor.
He has also promised to develop the region into the best state in terms of infrastructure and other amenities. He has promised to close down the belt shops and provide jobs to local women in police department to stop illicit liquor trade.
Jagan has vision and he has been with the people all the time taking up their issues and held deekshas and dharnas at Delhi, and in the state, she said and appealed to the people to give a big mandate to the party candidates.
If we win 30 MPs seats, including five in Telangana, we can get our works done as YSRCP will be a force at the Centre and national politics, she said.
