Appealing to the people of Andhra Pradesh to vote for a change by rejecting the unscrupulous Chandrababu government which has always been found wanting when it mattered most on the welfare front but had never gone back on backing its favoured wheeler-dealers, YSR Congress has said that TDP has left out 600 poll promises made during previous elections.
Now, it has come back with fresh bundle of promises that would meet the same fate as earlier ones.
Speaking at various venues as part of electioneering Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Honorary President YS Vijayamma and party leader YS Sharmila had called upon the people to use their discretion and elect a government which has credibility and respect for values and assured that the Navaratnas will bring a socio-economic change and the state will further dip deep into anarchy if the ruling Party makes an encore.
The Party has made is clear that it is not having pact with any Party and is fighting on its own while TDP has been flitting from one Party to the other and changing colour too often as the leader lacks character and is opportunist in nature.
The Party has promised that RTC would be merged into government and provide the long pending demand of the workers a fillip. Farmers, women groups, students, youth, old age people and all sections would be benefitted from the Navaratnas, they said and appealed to vote for fan symbol and asked them not to be carried away by the crumbs thrown by Chandrababu Naidu before elections.
If he is elected back to power, the anarchy will further deepen and people will have to pay a very high price as we have seen in the last five years, how he has went back on all the poll promises and how he started showering crumbs just three months before the elections.
If he comes back all the Govt. schools would be closed down to enable his coterie to corporatize education and medicare would go further and further away from the common man. Ration cards would be weeded out indiscriminately along with other welfare schemes.
He has assured that jobs would be created failing which stipend would be given to youth. Jobs were not created to all but Lokesh gets the job and stipend in the form three ministerial berths. Rampant corruption was seen during the past five years and reports like NABARD and other institutions had shown that our state has slipped to the rock bottom under TDP rule.
YSR had brought in schemes that benefitted all sections of the people and completed major portion of many of the irrigation works but Chandrababu Naidu did not complete the remaining small fraction of work though many parts of the region are facing water crisis. Though the Chief Minister paid 16 visits to the place Velugonda project did not move even 16 inches further, they said.
People felt that they were secure under YSR regime and people should cast their vote for fan symbol to see the golden era back.
Despite the Babu-Modi jodi for over 4 years they could not get Special Category Status (SCS) and it was YSRCP which led the movement and taken the fight to the national capital even. What the state had done during that period was to amass wealth in the name of kickbacks to Polavaram project and real estate deals in Amaravathi.
Do we need such a corrupt person back, is the issue people have to decide and give their mandate on April 11.
The leaders have toured Kurnool, Ananthapur, Prakasam and Guntur district addressing a string of meetings and road shows which were packed to the capacity.
