YSRCP president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy greeting people at a public meeting at Chagalamarri village in Kurnool district on Tuesday
Kurnool: YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy spit fire on the TDP government and criticised that the State is progressing backwards instead of moving ahead. “I want to reverse the present situation and extend flawless governance to the people. Hence, I have undertaken this Praja Sankalpa Yatra,” said Jagan.
Jagan who arrived in Kurnool district as part of his Praja Sankalpa Yatra on Monday evening, addressed his first public meeting in the district at Chagalamarri in Allagadda mandal on Tuesday.Jagan said he was getting to know about the sorry plight of people during his Padayatra. Farmers in the State were being put to a lot of hardship. He flayed Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for failing to implement total loan waiver for farmers. He said the loan waiver implemented by the government was not even sufficient for farmers to clear the interest on loans.
He said despite having abundant water resources, Kurnool district is reeling under severe drought conditions. He pointed out that Rajoli and Gundrevula projects would cater the drinking water needs of the people besides providing irrigation facility. But the State government is totally ignoring the projects, he regretted. He said that his father late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy provided administrative sanction to the tune of Rs 650 crore for the projects.
He further said that if Rajoli and Gundrevula are completed then water would be supplied to Kurnool-Cuddapah (KC) canal with which thousands of farmers would derive benefit. These projects would have been completed if his father had been alive, he stated. Jagan said that Naidu has cheated the people of Andhra Pradesh on all fronts. He has not even spared even DWCRA groups. Not a single house was built for the poor under the TDP regime.
